"Settlers incited to murder [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas and Palestinians during separate demonstrations in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and the settlements of Ariel, Gush Etzion, Kiryat Arba, and additional settlements (protests led by the Derech Chaim Movement took place in Tel Aviv in response to the brutal murder of Ori Ansbacher, and included calls to assassinate PA Chairman Abbas; see notes below –Ed.)…

Fatah Movement Revolutionary Council member and [Official Fatah] Spokesperson Osama Al-Qawasmi said that the occupation government is the one that is funding 'the true terror' through its insistence on the occupation, the construction of the racial separation fence, the prevention of freedom of movement, the summary executions, the demolishment of homes, the isolation of villages and cities, and the killing of children and their arrest; while President Mahmoud Abbas is the one that is defending the rights of our people according to the international laws. Al-Qawasmi demanded that the members of our people unite the ranks, unify, and support each other in order to deal with the surrounding dangers on all levels, and emphasized thatthe cause of the families of the prisoners and the Martyrs (Shahids) is a red line that is not up for discussion or negotiation."

Ori Ansbacher -19-year-old Israeli woman who was brutally attacked and stabbed to death by 29-year-old Palestinian terrorist Arafat Arfiah in Jerusalem on Feb. 7, 2019. Arfiah was apprehended on Feb. 8, 2019, and later confessed to the murder.

Campaign calling to assassinate PA Chairman Abbas - The Derech Haim Movement, led by right-wing Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh, began a campaign calling for the assassination of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas in December 2018. Their posters, which have been put up in the West Bank, show Abbas' face as if seen through a rifle sight. On the poster is written in red, with blood dripping from it: "A call to the government: Eliminate those who fund murder!" Under this is written: "The Palestinian Authority and its leader pay 12,000 Israeli shekels a month to murderers of Jews. The time has come to say: One who funds murder = murderer." Under this text are the pictures of the five Fogel family terror victims who were murdered in their home in 2011, and whose imprisoned murderers are receiving salaries from the PA. At the bottom is Derech Haim’s logo.
