We all know that Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) is the consummate liar in the traditional Arab/Islamic sense…
So when he spouts off about how his PA (that he’s the dictator of) is raising its youth in a culture of peace, we all know that this is just pure BS on a standard Arab level. This is the mindset. It’s not to say that all Arabs are consummate liars, because they’re not, but it is in a fact a common feature in the region. Just ask US subcontractors about their experience in Iraq, trying to get a straight answer from anyone there. Next to impossible.
‘Abbas Tells Trump ‘We Are Raising Our Youth, Our Children, Our Grandchildren On A Culture Of Peace’ – But The Facts On The Ground Are That PA Is Educating Children To Violence Against Israel
During his May 3, 2017 meeting with U.S. President Trump, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud ‘Abbas said: “Mr. President, I affirm to you that we are raising our youth, our children, our grandchildren on a culture of peace.” The following are excerpts from reports published by MEMRI in recent years reflecting the indoctrination of children by the Palestinian Authority and Fatah in armed resistance, jihad and martyrdom. This includes glorification of terrorists, and the promotion of the refugees’ right of return to their original homes in Israel “under the banner of glory, jihad and struggle.”
‘Abbas Meets 14-Year-Old Who Attempted To Stab Civilians

Among those he met was 14-year-old Osama Zaidat, who was shot while attempting to stab civilians in Kiryat Arba on September 20, 2016. Below is a photo of the meeting posted on ‘Abbas’s Facebook page:
