Regular PA daily columnist: Israel’s government ministers “use terror to remain in their seats”

Op-ed by Yahya Rabah, columnist for the official PA daily and a member of the Fatah Leadership Committee in Gaza:
: “The uprising and the first causes of its outbreak”
“After the conclusion of the first month of the popular uprising, the Jerusalem uprising, the uprising of the brave Palestinian generations, all of Israel’s systems have now begun… to gamble and act in the field so that the uprising will deviate from its basic starting point, its peacefulness on the one hand and widespread popularity on the other hand, which gives it the ability to continue, to struggle and constantly come up with innovations. This is because the fact that the uprising continues to be popular and peaceful exposes the Israeli inability to show any innovation. Likewise, it exposes the occupation in its most heinous form, the settlement as a cesspool of evil, the infamous terrorist cells, and the government ministers, who use terror to remain in their seats, and nothing else.”

Note: As of the date this article was published (Dec. 7, 2015), 22 Israelis had been killed and at least 242 injured in what the article refers to as a “peaceful” “uprising” (i.e., Palestinian terror wave that began in October 2015 and has included stabbings, car rammings and shootings against Israelis).
