In one of the Palestinian Authority’s more bizarre attempts at propaganda, a P.A. official repeatedly compares Israel to breast cancer, both of which she claims must be “defeated.”

The Palestinian Authority uses every opportunity to spread hatred of Israel. Here’s another striking example.
At the opening of Pink October 2019, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, PA official Laila Ghannam, who is the PA District Governor of Ramallah, addressed the audience with a message full of hate for Israel.
According to Ghannam, since Palestinian women have to “deal with Israel,” which is “the greatest cancer,” they are equipped “to defy other illnesses” and defeat cancer “through early examinations.”
This is a recurring message from Ghannam to Palestinian women. In 2018, for International Early Breast Cancer Discovery Awareness Day, Ghannam encouraged women to get checked for early detection of breast cancer, adding “Palestinian women – who are capable of dealing with the occupation, which is the largest and most dangerous cancer in the world – will be able to completely overcome any other cancer.”
In reality, the PA doesn’t prioritize fighting cancer over perpetrating terror. Palestinian Media Watch reported that the PA suspended the successful but not complete cancer treatment of a 7-year-old Palestinian boy in an Israeli hospital in order to keep paying salaries to terrorists.
