Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu posted the following today on his Facebook page:
“Palestinian President Abbas tells the world that he educates Palestinian children for peace. That’s a lie.
“Last week, the Palestinian Authority (PA) named a public square after Khaled Nazzal, a Palestinian terrorist chief who planned the 1974 Maalot massacre in which Palestinian terrorists murdered 22 school children and 4 adults.
“Naming yet another public square for a mass murderer teaches Palestinian youngsters to murder Israelis.”
Jesus Himself, Israel’s greatest native Son, warned, in Luke 17: 1-2,
Then said he to the disciples, It is impossible but that offenses will come: but woe to him, through whom they come! It were better for him that a millstone were tied around his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.
Naming a public square after a mass murderer is “the very opposite of peace,” Netanyahau said.
Not surprisingly, President Abbas’s Fatah movement claimed responsibility for Friday’s lethal stabbing of an Israeli policewoman and decorated one of the killers’ houses with flags.
“President Abbas,” Netanyahu said, “stop poisoning the minds of Palestinian youth. Educate for peace, not terror.”
