to Saddam Hussein’s Collaborators?
Yoram Ettinger, The Jerusalem Cloakroom
THE PALESTINIAN-IRAQI AXIS, established during WW2, when COLLABORATING
WITH THE NAZIS, is solid. The Iraq-PLO axis was employed by the
Soviets against the US and its Mideast allies. It has been reinforced
– since the establishment of the PLO – by personal, ideological,
financial, political and terrorist webs. It has been nurtured by
the entire PLO political infrastructure, including Arafat and his
top deputy, ABU-MAZEN, who was a chief architect of PLO ties with
the USSR and East European ruthless dictators (Would the US consider
removing Saddam, while anointing one of his deputies?!).
PLO/PA-CONTROLLED PALESTINIANS rejoice the execution of American
POWs and the downing of US aircraft in Iraq. OL’ GLORY is burned
in the streets of Palestinian towns, while Palestinian crowds hail
Saddam, wave Iraqi flags and shout: "Death to Bush and America;
With our blood and soul we shall liberate Iraq!"
USA/ENGLAND-LED CRUSADERS ARE RETURNING… They will corrupt our
religion and education, rob our oil and plunder our lands,"
incited PLO-appointed senior clergy, Youssef Abu-Sneineh, during
the Friday sermon, traditionally broadcast live on PLO TV and radio,
attended by 30,000 Moslems at the Temple Mt.’s Al-Aqsa Mosque. During
the warm-up for the March 7, 2003 sermon, another PLO-appointed
clergy, Sheikh Jamal, fired-up the crowd: "The US Great Satan,
the enemy of humanity, will be decimated by Allah, who will down
America’s aircraft and drown its ships, handing Iraq a victory."
4. FRIDAY INCITEFUL
SERMONS, by PLO clergies at the Temple Mt., have been a leading
moral authority for most Palestinians, shaping their worldview.
The sermons – just like PLO’s education and media systems – reflect
PLO’s strategy, more authentically than PLO rhetoric directed at
5. PLO’s CHIEF
MOSLEM AUTHORITY, Akrameh Sabri, called upon all Moslems to oppose
the US, "which has systematically shed innocent blood, ever
since the bombing of Japan… US terrorism against Afghanistan and
Iraq must be opposed by all Moslems." He was preceded by Sheikh
Jamal: "This is a war between the American infidel and the
People of Truth; a war between the Infidel and Allah" (March
14 and Jan. 29, 2003 Friday sermons at the Temple Mt.). On Feb.
28, 2003, Sheikh Jamal aroused the Al Aqsa Mosque crowd: "Allah
will execute Moslems who collaborate with the US and Britain."
ALLAH DROWNED PHARAOH… and will drown the dwarf, THE PHARAOH OF
ALL TIMES, THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT" (Mar. 21, 2003 Friday sermon
at Gaza’s Sheikh Ijlin Mosque). On Dec 27, 2002, the PLO-appointed
Muhammad Hussein incited, during his Friday sermon on the Temple
Mt.: "Moslems face a challenge similar to the one faced by
Iraq, when invaded by the Tatars (Mongols), faced by Spain’s Moslems
who were assaulted by the Christians, and faced by Moslem lands
invaded by the Crusaders."
6. 70% OF PALESTINIANS
SUPPORT HOMICIDE BOMBING, suggests a March 8, 2003 poll conducted
by the Gaza-based Palestinian Society for Development. PLO-directed
clergy, education and media have nurtured such a state of mind!
a terrorist state in Iraq, while calling for a terrorist (Palestinian)
state west of the Jordan River, constitutes an OXYMORON. It would
undermine vital US interests, unless one sacrifices proven track
record on the altar of Oslo-style delusions.
