While PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas professes the PA’s alleged wish for peace, his own Fatah movement is busy glorifying murder as “a symphony of love for Jerusalem.”
The cartoon above tweeted by Fatah, shows a masked man playing a knife as a violin, using a key for bow which symbolizes the “return” of Palestinians on the backdrop of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock. It warns Israelis of more stabbing murders - “If the occupation wants to hear it again and again...” It appeared on Fatah’s official Twitter account with the following text:

"A symphony of love for Jerusalem. If the occupation wants to hear it again and again, it should continue invading Jerusalem, attacking our noble women and desecrating our Noble Sanctuary (i.e., the Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza) and our Jerusalem."

The text echoes Abbas' own words, as documented by Palestinian Media Watch, who has encouraged Palestinians to "protect the holy places." The mention of "noble women" and "desecration" of Al-Aqsa repeats similar reasons murderer Muhannad Halabi cited for his attack killing 2 in Jerusalem.
Another recent tweet by Abbas' Fatah showed a picture of a masked Palestinian with a rock in his hand and the following text:  
"Rock, rock, a rock in my hand, and my blood on my second hand.
With them I have defeated death and fate... #the_rage_of_Jerusalem"
