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)
