PA Newspaper: Terror Attack Needed to Break Up Holocaust Ceremony

YERUSHALAYIM -
(Itai Zoref)

Dozens of world leaders will be in Yerushalayim Thursday to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp – and the Palestinian Authority is uncomfortable with the idea of so many world leaders coming to Israel to affirm a stand against anti-Semitism. What to do? According to commentator Yahya Rabak, writing in the official newspaper of the Palestinian Authority, a terror attack will solve the problem. “One shot fired will ruin the ceremony, and one dead body will cancel the ceremony,” Rabak wrote Monday in Al Hayat-al Jadida, according to Palestinian Media Watch.

Dozens of world leaders – including 24 presidents, four kings and four prime ministers – will wing their way to Israel to participate in the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp. The events will take place at Yad Vashem in Yerushalayim. Among the world leaders set to participate are Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President Emmanuel Macron, President of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier, President of Italy Sergio Mattarella, President of Austria Alexander Van der Bellen, Spanish King Felipe VI, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, Britain’s Prince Charles, and many others. Leaders are expected to begin arriving on Wednesday, for the event that will take place on the following day.

A terror attack would be appropriate, according to Rabak, to bring attention to the “Palestinian holocaust that Israel is still conducting. Palestinians are likely to resist this event, because Yerushalayim belongs to them.” This will lead to violence and unrest, and to prevent that, the ceremony must be halted – and halted it can be, with injuries or even deaths.

“Israel is planning this event with great care in occupied Yerushalayim, and as usual world leaders will participate in the event, since the Jewish Holocaust was so terrible,” Rabak wrote. “But the Palestinian holocaust that Israel is conducting is seen as a simple matter, even a good thing. Clearly the Palestinians will not accept this, because it is their city, despite what Trump says and whether he gives it to Israel in his deal of the century. One shot fired will ruin the ceremony, and one dead body will cancel the ceremony,” he wrote.
