Trump dodges Arab trap in Ramallah


Arutz Sheva: President Trump was initially slated to walk through the grounds outside the PA’s Mukata complex to an official reception ceremony with Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

The proposed route would take the president right next to the burial place of former PLO leader and arch-terrorist, Yassir Arafat; a detail left out by the PA planners who presented the route to American officials.

Rather than a minor logistic oversight, the move was part of a calculated effort to lay a PR ambush for the president, allowing photographers to catch him in what would appear to be a planned visit to the grave of the deceased terrorist leader. more …

Opinion: It was bad enough that President Trump called Mahmoud Abbas “Mr. President” and said it was an honor to meet him. Abbas has not stood for reelection since 2009 and there is no honor in meeting a mass murderer.

A stop at Yasser Arafat’s grave would be like paying tribute to Adolf Hitler.

It was Arafat who the UN and Bill Clinton sought to be the peacemaker in the Palestinian/Israeli conflict of the 1980’s-90’s. And it was Arafat who signed the Oslo Accords that obligated him to remove the clauses in the Palestinian National Covenant which called for the destruction of Israel.

He never did it.

And it was Abbas who did not sign the Oslo agreement, leaving the PA free to conduct terror attacks on Jewish citizens as the world continues to ignore it.

These two men, Arafat and Abbas, are responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of Jewish and Arab people through trickery and deceit.

Who does that remind you of?
