The IslamoNazis who call themselves Palestinians—a nationality invented by the KGB—have zero interest in building a functioning state. Their mission is to destroy the only successful state in the Middle East, Israel, the Jewish state. So obsessive is their Jew-hatred and jealousy—how did the Jews build a thriving country where Islam builds only failed states?—that they pay generous bounties for every Jew who is murdered, maimed, and tortured.
The Europeans tried to rid the world of Jews during World War II. For a few post-war years Europeans feigned remorse, and even rewrote history to cast themselves as heroic resistance fighters instead of collaborators. But in truth, Europeans who risked their lives to rescue Jews were few and far between.
With the rise of the European left, the newly founded state of Israel presented a new and juicy target for their latent Jew-hatred. “Hey, we don’t hate Jews, we’re just against Zionism.”
Imagine saying: “I have nothing against Swedes. It’s just Sweden I want to destroy.”
The left in Europe has, since the 1960s, partnered with IslamoNazis against Israel by shoveling millions into the coffers of the PLO and the PA, and more recently going squishy on the Iranians, who have repeatedly vowed to annihilate Israel.
Barack Obama and the Democrat party went full European when they rammed through the nuclear agreement with Iran which guarantees an Iranian nuclear bomb in ten to fifteen years.
Over at Commentary, Douglas J. Feith and Sander Gerber provide a look into the ghastly IslamoNazi culture dubbed Pay for Slay.
Donald Trump signaled a new approach to the state of Israel even before he was sworn in. Despite his campaign rhetoric about being “even-handed” in pursuit of what he called “a great real-estate deal” between Israel and the Palestinians, he tilted toward the Jewish state both in his choice of ambassador and in breaking with the Obama administration’s hostile fixation on Israel’s West Bank settlements.
The sympathy Mr. Trump has shown for Israel may reflect long-standing respect for the Jewish state and the influence of Trump’s personal relations with strong friends of Israel. But it appears to reflect something more than that. In the year since his “even-handed” comment, he seems to have gained insight about the Palestinians’ leadership. In particular, he says he’s “seen” how they use their official power to promote violent hatred of Israel, especially among their children. “I think the Palestinians have to get rid of some of that hate that they’re taught from a very young age,” Trump said on February 15. “They’re taught tremendous hate. I’ve seen what they’re taught. . . . It starts at a very young age and it starts in the school room.”
It does indeed. The Palestinian Authority promotes violence against Israel. Officials do it in public speeches. PA-run television and radio make it a theme, as do the curricula and textbooks of PA schools. The incitement is so unrelenting that it’s drawn criticism even from supporters of the PA, such as President Obama—and, remarkably enough, from the United Nations Security Council.1
Incitement, however, is only part of the picture. Palestinian officials don’t rely only on words. To spur knifings, car-rammings, and the like, they use an apparatus of cash incentives. The PA has enacted legislation and created bureaucracies to ensure financial rewards for perpetrators of anti-Israel attacks. Payment amounts correlate to the number of people the terrorists manage to victimize. It’s a system that not only foments violence but also makes terrorism a lucrative career choice for young Palestinians.
Critics have labeled this system “pay for slay.” It has received little public attention—far less than the incitement issue. But it deserves more, especially because U.S. taxpayers help fund the blood payments. The U.S. government averages $400 million in annual aid to the PA, and those aid dollars are fungible.
