“One shot will disrupt the [Holocaust] ceremony and one dead body will cancel the ceremony” – call for murder in op-ed in official PA daily

As over 40 world leaders gather in Jerusalem this week to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz at the event Remembering the Holocaust: Fighting Antisemitism, the Palestinian Authority wants to disrupt the ceremony. The official PA daily published an op-ed yesterday literally calling for murder in order to ruin the ceremony:

One shot will disrupt the ceremony and one dead body will cancel the ceremony.”

Before calling for murder, regular PA daily columnist Yahya Rabah criticized the international community for recognizing that the “Jews' Holocaust is terrible” while accepting as “insignificant, beautiful, [and] spectacular” what he called the “Palestinian holocaust by Israel that still continues.” Rabah warned: “It can be assumed that they [Palestinians] will resist the ceremony being held in Jerusalem itself, as Jerusalem is theirs.” His suggested solution to stopping the international ceremony from taking place – and which the official PA daily printed - is murder.

The following is a longer excerpt of the article in the official PA daily calling for murder to stop the commemoration of the Holocaust in Jerusalem:

Excerpt of op-ed by Yahya Rabah, regular columnist for the official PA daily

Headline: "This is Israel on the edge of the abyss!"

"Israel has shaken off everything from international law, to humanitarian international law, the decisions of the international bodies, and the beginning of the International Criminal Court's investigation (Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda's statements on Jan. 10, 2020 that there is reason to investigate Israel and "members of Hamas and Palestinian armed groups" for war crimes –Ed.). Moreover, it is now energetically planning to hold a ceremony for the Holocaust in occupied Jerusalem, and it is accustomed to the world participating with it in this ceremony, as the Jews' Holocaust is terrible, but the Palestinian holocaust by Israel that still continues is insignificant, beautiful, spectacular, and good. Of course, the Palestinians will never accept this equation, and it can be assumed that they will resist the ceremony being held in Jerusalem itself, as Jerusalem is theirs, despite [US President Donald] Trump who gave it to Israel as part of the filthy deal of the century. One shot will disrupt the ceremony and one dead body will cancel the ceremony. And despite the misery of the Arabs and their dissatisfaction with what is happening, they are capable, if even for just a moment, of not following in the steps of Israel and America who are determining for them who their enemies are and who their friends are."
