Palestinians have been here for “6,500 years” while Israelis are “nothing but Khazars,” lies PA daily, while calling to “increase popular resistance” terror

Excerpt of a column by Yahya Rabah, regular columnist for the official PA daily


Headline: “Popular resistance is our sword that does not break”



“[Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu is now openly making covenants with the settlement enterprise and the settlers to ensure success in the elections…


The solution, in this unnatural situation, is to increase the pace of popular resistance (i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror), which is the clearest form of justice. It is every Palestinian’s right to defend… the holy olive tree, which is witness to the fact that it was here 6,500 years ago (sic., the Palestinians have no history prior to modern times) while the so-called Israelis are nothing but an organic part of the Khazars(sic., genetic research has conclusively proven modern Jews share a common origin in Israel and are not the descendants of Khazars), and to the fact that the lie will remain a lie regardless of how much others will try to plant it in the land that is not theirs…


Popular resistance is the confirmation that our Palestinian right to our land and homeland is a great right more eternal than eternity itself. This is a legitimate right of every child from the moment of birth, and of every elderly man or woman until their dying day


We have no Palestinian Dimona (i.e., nuclear reactor and nuclear weapons), [but] we have our hands with which we hold rocks, and our teeth with which we tear the flesh of the aggressors, and this is a weapon that cannot be broken.”





The terms "peaceful uprising/resistance,” and “popular uprising/resistance" are used by PA leaders at times to refer to peaceful protest and at times to refer to deadly terror attacks and terror waves. For example, ‎Mahmoud Abbas defined as “peaceful popular” the murderous terror during the 2015-2016 ‎terror wave (“The Knife Intifada”), in which 40 people were killed (36 Israelis, 1 Palestinian, 2 Americans and 1 Eritrean) and hundreds wounded in stabbings, shootings, and car ramming attacks. Abbas said: "We want peaceful popular uprising, and that’s what this is."
