Share |
     

Fatah Facebook:

“Sons of Zion, this is an oath 

to the Lord of the Heavens:

Prepare all the bags you can for your body parts”

 

“We wish for the blood to become rivers”

 

by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik 

 

Today, Fatah, headed by Abbas, posted the following threat to Israelis:

“Sons of Zion, this is an oath to the Lord of the Heavens:

Prepare all the bags you can for your body parts”

[Facebook, “Fatah - The Main Page,” July 7, 2014]

 

Two days ago, Fatah posted a similar threat with a picture of burning houses:

 

“The sons of Fatah will turn your settlements into balls of fire and increase your horror”

[Facebook, “Fatah - The Main Page,”July 5, 2014]

 

Earlier this month, Fatah posted a poem including the line “We wish for the blood to become rivers”:

“The source of terrorism is the Zionist...

The Zionist, by Allah, is treacherous

O settler, O malicious one

Your time has ended...

O Arabs, enough betrayal:

We wish for the blood to become rivers...

This homeland wants [your] rage -

It does not want you to wait.”

[Facebook, “Fatah - The Main Page,” July 3, 2014]

 

Last week, Palestinian Media Watch exposed similar rhetoric inciting to violence used by Fatah: "Blood demands blood; millions of Martyrs (Shahids) are marching to Jerusalem." [Facebook, "Fatah - The Main Page," July 3, 2014] Similarly: "An oath in the name of the Lord of the Universe, O sons of Zion: blood for blood." [Facebook, "Fatah - The Main Page," July 1, 2014]

 

PMW has documented that Fatah has been posting similar messages for months, using using its official Facebook page to promote violence.

 

On June 24, 2014, four days after the kidnapping and subsequent murder of the three Israeli youths Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar and Naftali Frenkel, and well before the kidnapping and murder of the Palestinian youth Muhammad Abu Khdeir, Fatah posted a video promising Israelis: "Death is near." [Facebook, "Fatah - The Main Page," June 16, 2014]

 

 

 

 

In another video posted by Fatah in January this year - during peace talks between Israel and the PA - Abbas’ Fatah movement threatened to "turn Tel Aviv into a ball of fire." [Facebook, "Fatah - The Main Page," Jan. 21, 2014]

 

Note: The Facebook page where these items were posted, called "Fatah - The Main Page," is an official Fatah Facebook page. The page defines itself as belonging to the Fatah Mobilization and Organization Commission, whose official website links to this Facebook page.

 

This is a longer excerpt of the poem posted by Fatah on Facebook:

 

“Who is the source of terrorism?

By the poet of the homeland, Khaled Al-Issa

 

I opened the book

And found the answer:

The source of terrorism is the Zionist

Come and see what happened...

 

The Zionist, by Allah, is treacherous

O settler, O malicious one

Your time has ended

Read the papers, lawless settler

And hear, O settlers:

You have neither conscience nor religion.

Bastards, all of you

You were brought to this land

From [Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Avigdor] Liberman’s Russia, 

from Ethiopia and Sudan

And the settler is like a monkey...

 

O world, O sleepers

The birds alight on your heads

Look, see what has happened in Palestine

Where are the decision-makers?

 

This [West] Bank is protected

And the hearts in it are burning.

O Arabs, enough betrayal:

We wish for the blood to become rivers...

 

This homeland wants [your] rage -

It does not want you to wait.”

[Facebook, “Fatah - The Main Page”, July 3, 2014]
