Palestinian rivals Hamas and Fatah are gearing up for their first contest at the polls since 2006 — a vote on October 8 for mayors and local councils in 425 communities in Judea and Samaria and Gaza Strip.
The Quartet published a report in which it blasted Israel for building in Judea and Samaria, comparing it to Palestinian terror. It also criticized the Palestinians for inciting to terrorism. PA officials claim the Quartet is biased in Israel's favor and has ceased to serve as an impartial mediator.
After Palestinian terrorist Mohammad Taraireh, 17, murdered Hallel Yaff Ariel, 13, while she was sleeping in bed, Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas' party posted the terrorist's picture on its official Facebook page, declaring him a 'martyr.'
Sultan Abu Alainin, a member of Fatah's Central Committee and aide to Palestinian Authority head Mahmoud Abbas, shockingly called for the death of Israelis in a recent interview. Unfortunately, this type of Palestinian incitement is constant and often goes uncondemned by the international community.
