More incitement and impediments to peace from the PA. There is something of an endless supply of this stuff. they keep churning it out

PA daily op-ed expresses hope
for Israel's destruction

by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

An op-ed in the official PA daily published on May 15, the anniversary of the founding of the modern state of Israel, reiterated the Palestinian Authority's consistent denial of Israel's right to exist and its hope and expectation for Israel's destruction.

In the op-ed, Israel's establishment is demonized:
"The greatest theft in history... the most criminal act that humanity has ever seen... [the establishment of a] fascist state upon the ruins of the Palestinian people, which has suffered the greatest and ugliest ethnic cleansing known to modern history."
The op-ed continues with the anticipation of Israel's destruction:
"We remember you, all of Palestine. You are present within us... until we return to you, oh Haifa, Acre, and Jaffa, all of historical Palestine... and all the temporary ones [Israelis] will go away... May their [Israeli] independence collapse, and may Palestine come back to life."
Significantly, the writer of this op-ed is not a regular staff writer of the official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, which may indicate that the editors accepted this op-ed for publication because of its content.
