Abbas: Murdering Israelis is “popular peaceful uprising”

Official PA TV News broadcast
Excerpt from PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ speech at the Palestine Prize ceremony

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: “No one called for this uprising (i.e., Oct. - Nov. 2015 terror campaign) and no one asked for it. It stemmed from the hearts of the young who have seen everything with their own eyes. They have seen the oppression, the settlements and they have seen the attacks by the herds of settlers, and therefore they have done what they have done (i.e., 14 killed by stabbings and shootings). We said to everyone that we want peaceful popular uprising, and that’s what this is. That’s what this is. However, the aggression of firing bullets has come from the Israelis. We have suffered greatly, and we say to the world: We believe in peace. We want peace. We want them first of all to leave the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and we want the herds to stay away from us.”
