PA Editor: Israel attacked Paris synagogue to encourage French Jews to come to Israel (PMW-PALESTINIAN MEDIA WATCH) by Itamar Marcus 01/11/04)Source: http://www.pmw.org.il PMW} PALESTINIAN MEDIA WATCH PMW} PALESTINIAN MEDIA WATCH Articles-Index-TopPublishers-Index-Top
One of the common tactics of Palestinian Authority (PA) propaganda is to blame Israel for Palestinian and Arab terrorism. Now a prominent PA newspaper editor has come up with a new twist on this tactic.

On June 13, 2003, a Belgian citizen tried to blow up a synagogue in Belgium, using two gas balloons hidden in his car. Two months ago (November 15, 2003), two cars exploded in front of a synagogue in Istanbul, causing the deaths of 23 people.

Last week a new libel was invented by the editor of the PA official daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, in an interview on PA TV. The editor explained that because Israel suffers from low immigration, it was Israel who started last month´s fire in the Parisian Synagogue -- to convince French Jews to immigrate to Israel.

The following are the words of Hafez Barghouty on PA TV:

... "The Secret Zionists gangs have been trying, and are acting in France in the same way they used to act in Arab countries- Iraq, Egypt and Morocco, blowing up... Jewish synagogues in order to force them [the Jews] to immigrate [to Israel]. So after the attack on a synagogue, the Israeli ambassador in France called for all the Jews in France to immigrate [to Israel]...
...There are Israeli or Zionist gangs that carry out terror attacks against Jews and force them to immigrate [to Israel], because Israel suffers from emigration." (PMW.ORG.IL 01/11/04)
