 Khaled Abu Toameh: Palestinian Leaders Use Coronavirus to Attack Israel…….


These Arabs stick to their Jew-baiting game plan no matter what…


As is obvious from the PPS statement and the false charges made by the PLO officials, it is the Palestinian leadership, not Israel, that is exploiting the coronavirus. Clearly, Palestinian leaders are leveraging the virus to continue their campaign of incitement against Israel and Jewish settlers instead of focusing their energies on preventing the spread of the disease.


Second, the recent Israeli announcement was made in the last week of February, before the outbreak of the coronavirus in Israel and the West Bank. In fact, the announcement came on the eve of the March 3 election and was more likely a pledge from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s electoral campaign.


On March 18, the PLO Executive Committee, whose members held a meeting in Ramallah, said that it “rejects the Israeli occupation government’s exploitation of the coronavirus to pursue its policy of settlement construction and colonial expansion.”


The committee, consisting of veteran PLO leaders and loyalists of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, claimed that the Israeli government and Jewish settlers were exploiting the outbreak of the virus to “destroy trees, attack houses and vehicles, and pave new roads for the use of settlers [in the West Bank] in order to implement the ominous so-called Deal of the Century.”


In addition, the PLO leaders went on to condemn Israel for supposedly allowing “herds of Jewish settlers to storm the Al Aqsa Mosque” in Jerusalem. They were referring to routine, peaceful, visits by Jews to the Temple Mount. In fact, Jews do not “storm” the compound. Instead, they enter as visitors in coordination with the Israeli authorities. Moreover, contrary to the claims of the Palestinians, none of these Jews has ever set foot inside the Al Aqsa Mosque.
