Abbas: “Shalit was not the first, and will not be the last”

the elder of ziyon

“Moderate” Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) gave a speech yesterday at a Revolutionary Council of Fatah meeting. He spoke about a wide range of topics, from the UN and UNESCO stunts to his bizarre and fictional recollections of history saying that Obama had promised a Palestinian Arab state by September.


One part of his speech was notable. He recalled fondly the Fatah kidnapping of Shmuel Rosenwasser in 1970 (he said it was in 1968) and how Fatah demanded that Israel release Mahmoud Bakr Hijazi, who was arrested while trying to blow up Israel’s water infrastructure in Fatah’s first terror attack.

He then said that the Shalit deal was not the first, nor would it be the last. 

Since there are currently no Israelis in Palestinian Arab hands, this indicates that Abbas is not as much against kidnapping Israelis as he pretends to be.
