After just closing the diplomatic offices of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) for its intransigence regarding the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, the U.S. revoked the visas of the PLO envoy and his family.
The PLO was founded in 1964 for the purpose of the “liberation of Palestine.” It’s main modus operandi has been armed struggle and is known for using violence against civilians. The U.S. considered the PLO a terrorist organization until the Madrid Conference in 1991.
The move comes on the heels of the murder of an Israeli-American father of four in Israel Sunday, September 16, 2018 by a 17-year-old terrorist from the city of Hebron, known for its Hamas supporters.
Various Palestinian groups praised the attack, including the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the military wing of Fatah, the ruling party of the Palestinian Authority.
“We welcome the stabbing attack in Bethlehem,” said Hamas spokesperson Abd Al-Latif Kanaoueu.
Islamic Jihad lauded the murder as an “heroic stabbing.”
The victim, Ari Fuld, 45, was returning from shopping and waiting at a bus stop when he was stabbed in the back by the teenager. He managed to shoot his attacker even though he was mortally wounded.
Incitement of children is common in extremist Palestinian communities, as documented by PalWatch.org. As then Senator Hillary Clinton remarked in 2007 after reviewing textbooks used by the Palestinian Authority, “[The PA is] “profoundly poisoning the minds of its children.”
Check out the trailer below for our upcoming film Jihad Generation about the radicalization of kids.
Jihad Generation is a powerful new film that takes an unflinching look at the brutal exploitation of youth by extremists worldwide. The documentary features compelling personal stories of children, who are actively influenced by extremists, and their families, and showcases activists and experts who confront this growing global threat.
