No wonder the left is smitten with Hamas.
The new Hamas-Fatah unity further exposes the Palestinian Authority’s failure to live up to pledges to stop incitement.
Abbas’ unity with Hamas now unmasks his image of a “peace partner” by binding him as a partner in Hamas’ stated goal of killing Jews and destroying Israel.
Hamas TV broadcast 10 days ago a speech by a Muslim cleric who preached, “Our mantle is death to the Jews and to America.”
“The prophet said ‘judgment day will not come until you fight the Jews,” the cleric said. “Oh, Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. They won’t say, ‘Oh, westernized Muslim…;’ They won’t say, ‘Oh Muslim who does not know his religion.’
“They will say, ‘Oh, Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me. Come and kill him.’”
