Fatah leader: Orthodox Israelis "are eager to steal lands, are thirsty for blood to please their god (against the gentiles), and crave pockets full of money"
Headline: “Netanyahu and his five principles”
Op-ed by Fatah Revolutionary Council member Bakr Abu Bakr, regular columnist for official PA daily
“In [achieving] his electoral success, [Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu did not rely on his rhetorical skills alone …rather, he stuck to five basic principles designed to project an image and reap success:
1. Netanyahu adopted a policy of instilling fear in the Israelis - as if his radical, terrorist government that opposes evacuating the settlements could promise the Israelis security, livelihood and stability…
2. The second principle [Netanyahu] relies on is the theft and crude falsification of history, based on the assumption that Palestine is the land of his “ancestors” – even though [Netanyahu] and those he represents are strangers to this land both now and historically speaking or [the land of] those he claims are his kings and prophets. This is [merely] a belief, and if he holds it, he has made good use of it to influence the Israeli and international consciousness, which is dominated by the bible’s historical nonsense.
3. The third principle, related to those described above, is that Netanyahu’s reliance on the falsification and theft of history is connected to the strong link created between the false-historic (in the Bible and its adjuncts) and the spiritual-religious [all parentheses in source]. He succeeded in inciting all the Orthodox Israelis (who will soon be the majority of the population), who are eager to steal lands, are thirsty for blood to please their god (against the gentiles), and crave pockets full of money. He [Netanyahu] thereby also incited the Zionist American right-wing, seeking to ignite a “holy” religious war, which he will direct, together with the radical terrorist Jews, against the holy sanctuary of Jerusalem (i.e., the Temple Mount), the holy sanctuary of Hebron (i.e., Cave of the Patriarchs) and all places in the West Bank that he claims Jews have a connection to.”
4. [Political lies and manipulations, such as harming the ‘Arabs of the interior’ (i.e., Israeli Arabs), - that is, Netanyahu’s call to the public to vote because the Arab voter turnout was high, and his declarations in which he retracted statements he had made during the Bar-Ilan speech, in which he accepted a two-state solution.]
5. [Opposition to the establishment of a Palestinian state.]"
