Observation: Will Mansour Abbas and Raam allow lies to dictate their
Dr. Aaron Lerner 11 May 2022
Mansour Abbas knows that "al Aqsa is in danger" is a lie.
He knows that a group of thugs who have absolutely no respect for the
sanctity of the al Aqsa mosque have been responsible for violence in al Aqsa
and have left Israeli security forces with no choice but to act.
After all, Mansour Abbas saw the photos and videos of these thugs playing
soccer and dancing a debka - and this with their shoes on - INSIDE the al
Mansour Abbas knows that these thugs have been attacking - from inside the
al Aqsa mosque - Jews praying at the Western Wall.
Mansour Abbas ALSO knows that no Jew has any intention whatsoever to pray
inside the al Aqsa mosque. At the absolute very extreme - and this is most
certainly not the program of any Israeli authority - there are Jews who wish
to pray in the courtyard area which historically did not bear the name of
the al Aqsa mosque since it is OUTSIDE of the mosque!
The truth is that EVERYONE knows it' a lie that "al Aqsa is in danger".
Hamas, Jordan, you name it. Even President Biden knows!
Mansour Abbas and his Raam party now have to decide if this lie will dictate
Today it appears that there may be another lie.
It appears that Al Jazeera reporter Shireen Abu Akleh was killed by
Palestinians this morning in Jenin.
There may be a trillion "witnesses" that, out of the blue, Israeli forces
operating inside Jenin suddenly decided to break the pastoral silence in
Jenin by opening fire to assassinate her. But we live in a world that it is
ok to lie - even for reporters to lie - in the service of the Palestinian
And it defies all logic to think that the IDF would take the initiative to
open fire (that is open fire -not return fire).
The Palestinians rushed away Shireen Abu Akleh's body and - surprise
surprise - it appears that the apparently Palestinian bullets that killed
her will never be recovered since they would attest to the lie that the IDF
Mansour Abbas also knows that what transpired in Jenin was most certainly
not an intentional Israeli attack against Al Jazeera reporter Shireen Abu
Akleh and that most likely Palestinians are responsible for her death.
But he cancelled cancelled his press conference nonetheless in response to
the incident and issued a press release condemning her death.
So it all comes down to this:
Will Mansour Abbas allow himself to have his destiny dictated by lies?
