Op-ed: After miserable failure of PA's military terror, Abbas goes from one international leader to another and incites against Israel
Recently, Abbas has been practicing Rohanization: Using idyllic and embellished depictions to deceive the global public opinion, which does not understand much about the Middle East. "Hamas?" he was asked in Europe, and responded: "Every country has an opposition."
Well, I'm unfamiliar with any opposition which fires missiles at citizens, which digs terror tunnels for abductions, and which throws members of the rival group – in this case Abbas' group, Fatah – off the fifth floor. This is an "opposition" which does not recognize Israel's right to exist, and what would happen if it seizes power, as it did in Gaza in 2007? After all, Israel handed Gaza on a silver platter over to that same Abbas, who controlled the area for two years before fleeing with his people as fast as he could.

Op-ed: Instead of suggesting bold alternative, Netanyahu loading 'two states' cart with irrational demands
While towards the West Abbas has been trained to scatter magic words of "peace, freedom and partnership," words which surely sound nice to anyone who is not familiar with the situation, towards Israel Abbas uses what can be called "diplomatic terror," a new term which should be adopted. In every international forum, the Palestinian representative immediately attacks the Israeli one insolently, and we and the world treat this harassment as if it's an obvious thing.
Well, it's not. From now on, this is another type of terror, after the miserable failure of the military terror of that same Palestinian Authority. Abbas goes from one international leader to another, and incites against Israel. He is not busy with the entity he wants to establish. Co one care about that there. All he does is incite and fight Israel, confirming Israel's main claim that this is an authority engaged in incitement.
We are in a "peace" process, so why is Abbas busy inciting? More than Abbas wants a state, he wants the Jews not to have a state. Just like we put an end to Fatah's military terror – Hamas is carrying on with that, of course – there is room to demand an immediate cessation to diplomatic terror.
As part of that terror, Abbas claims that the Palestinian state will be free of Jews – whitewashed words describing serious ethnic cleansing of some 700,000 Jews. Is Europe ready to expel hundreds of thousands of Jews again? Is John Kerry willing to do so? And what is the difference between what Assad is doing in Syria, the expulsion and cleansing of hundreds of thousands, and what that Abbas is up to? Abbas overstates what he calls the "Nakba," but he himself is interested in creating an even more serious racial cleansing.
From now on, the senior Palestinian official will know that for every Jew who leaves his home, he and his authority will have to pay damages to the evictees or to the Israeli government, and we are talking about tens of billions of dollars. This should also be, and will be, the Israeli demand in the negotiations.
The Palestinians must also pay damages for the Gaza evacuation. In the 21st century, whoever demands ethnic cleansing should be denounced and expelled from the international community, and whoever is forced to evacuate his home will be fully compensated by the racists demanding his evacuation.
