The President [Abbas] added: 'Our human history shows that we have not tarried in carrying out our humanitarian obligation, just as the [Muslim] leader Saladin [who conquered Jerusalem] sent his physician to treat his enemy, Richard the Lion-Hearted, who led the invasion of our country and conquered it.' He continued: 'A catastrophe befell our neighbors, and it was our obligation to perform this humanitarian act for our neighbors, to save the environment, and to save human life.' The President emphasized that the Palestinian people does not tarry in carrying out its humanitarian obligation towards the whole world, whether this activity [takes place] within Israel or elsewhere, within the limits of its abilities."

Abbas: Israel killed "innocent people who were unarmed" in Gaza flotilla confrontation 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 27, 2010
Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas:
     "We spoke with [US envoy] Mitchell about an international investigation committee, and we continue to insist on the implementation of what the UN Secretary General said. We demand neither more nor less than the establishment of a neutral international committee which will investigate the assault and the killing of innocent people who, it has been shown, were unarmed, in international waters."
Abbas: Gaza flotilla participants only sought to "convey aid;" Israeli "attack" was a "great crime" 
Source: Al-Ayyam, June 17, 2010
Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas:
     “Israel has carried out a great crime which the entire world found intolerable: It attacked the ships in international waters, and this was a mistake and a crime. Also, it attacked ships which held nothing but people who wanted to convey aid to besieged Gaza.”
Abbas accuses Israel of committing "state terrorism" in Gaza flotilla confrontation 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 3, 2010
Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas at the Palestine Investment Conference in Bethlehem:
     "This is not the first time that Arab, Islamic and world blood has been mingled with Palestinian blood in the Palestinian people's long journey of struggle, continuing over the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century. The Freedom Flotilla is not the first serious attempt to support the Palestinian people… Everyone who took part in the Freedom Flotilla will henceforth hold Palestinian citizenship, because this was an honorable act in which the whole world participated… Over the last few days our people have been subjected to state terrorism, with Israel attacking the Freedom Flotilla. Our people, and the entire world, are currently facing this terror and refuse to let it continue."
Mahmoud Abbas demonizes Israel 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, May 31, 2010
On May 30, a flotilla of ships set out to break Israel’s blockade of Gaza. Participants were filmed on board chanting Islamic battle cries that invoked the killing of Jews, and expressing desire to seek Martyrdom. The next day, the Israeli army boarded the flotilla and was met with a well-coordinated attack, leading to the death of 9 flotilla participants. The following is PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s comments after the confrontation:

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, in a telephone interview from Amman with PA TV (Fatah):
Host:
"Mr. President [Abbas], this decision was made by the occupation's [Israel's] Minister of the Army, already yesterday. What is the significanceof this decision?"
Abbas: "The significance is that this decision was made in advance. They [Israel] wanted to create a confrontation. They did not want to allow [the ships into Gaza], but were determined from the outset to create a confrontation. They had the opportunity yesterday to relate to these people peacefully, because those who came to Gaza are civilians, peace-seeking people, who did not come to attack. They did not come with weapons or with an army. They came with humanitarian aid. Therefore, it was a decision made in advance, premeditated and with determination to kill and to create a confrontation with these people, and to take them all to ports in Israel. Israel always ignores all international norms, all international laws, all humanitarian laws. [Israel] doesn't care about anything."

Abbas libel: "Israel wants Jewish-only Jerusalem" 
Source: Ma’an, independent Palestinian news agency, July 20, 2009
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas:
     "Abbas: Israel wants Jewish-only Jerusalem... Israel intends to eliminate Jerusalem's Islamic and Christian character, President Mahmoud Abbas insisted in a speech in the central West Bank on Sunday evening... 'Israeli excavations across the holy city endanger its historical buildings and holy places, especially the Al-Aqsa Mosque,' Abbas said in Bethlehem."
Abbas: Story of 6 million cremated Jews is propaganda 
Source: The Other Side: the Secret Relationship Between Nazism and Zionism, by Mahmoud Abbas, Feb. 15, 1984
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s thesis, "The Other Side: The Secret Relations between Nazism and the Leadership of the Zionist Movement" (Translation by Wiesenthal Center):
     "Having more victims meant greater rights and stronger privilege to join the negotiation table for dividing the spoils of war once it was over. However, since Zionism was not a fighting partner -- suffering victims in a battle -- it had no escape but to offer up human beings, under any name, to raise the number of victims, which they could then boast of at the moment of accounting…
It seems that the interest of the Zionist movement...is to inflate this figure so that their gains will be greater. This led them to emphasize this figure in order to gain the solidarity of international public opinion with Zionism. Many scholars have debated the figure of six million and reached stunning conclusions -- fixing the number of Jewish victims at only a few hundred thousand."
 
Mahmoud Abbas's thesis: Zionists were Nazi allies

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s thesis, "The Other Side: The Secret Relations between Nazism and the Leadership of the Zionist Movement" (Translation by Wiesenthal Center):
     "A partnership was established between Hitler's Nazis and the leadership of the Zionist movement... [the Zionists] gave permission to every racist in the world, led by Hitler and the Nazis, to treat Jews as they wish, so long as it guarantees immigration to Palestine."
