Abbas’ Fatah blames Paris attacks on Israel

The Fatah party of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has blamed the terror attacks in Paris on Israel.

Cartoons blaming Israel for the attacks were published on the party’s official Facebook page, Palestinian Media Watch reported, one day after an Op-Ed in the official PA daily said that Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency was behind the attacks.

One cartoon shows Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu helping an ISIS terrorist near the Eiffel Tower aim his machine gun. Another cartoon shows two matches in a matchbox labeled “Terrorism,” with the head of one match shaped like an ISIS terrorist and the other like an Orthodox Jew.

The Op-Ed was published in the Al-Hayat Al-Jadida and translated by PMW. (JTA)
