Another spate of violence has been brought to Israelis and Palestinians. Many simply reply “here we go again.” But that is not the way it has to be. The normalization of violence, incitement and hate in Palestinian society can and must end. It starts by holding accountable all leaders and media outlets that incite violence. In the Valley, that means holding accountable Bishara Bahbah, a Palestinian delegate at the Oslo peace talks and a member of the board of directors of the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee.

“The spark of this intifada has been East Jerusalem and the endangerment of the status of Haram Al-Sharif, or the Noble Sanctuary, and what the Jews call the Temple Mount,” Bahbah wrote in an article published Oct. 12 in The Arizona Republic.

    Thank you, Mr. Taubman!
    In order to understand the nature of the incitement to Jew-hatred by the "Palestinians", one has to understand the nature of the conflict over Israel. We are not dealing with a "Palestinian-Israeli" conflict. We are not even dealing with an "Arab-Israeli" conflict, as it used to be called. How do we explain the fact that Israel's deadliest enemy is The Islamic Republic of Iran when the Iranians are not even Arab, let alone, "Palestinians"? The only explanation is that the conflict is an Islamic holy war - jihad - against the Jews. The Hamas Charter makes this perfectly clear. This jihad against the Jews unites all religious Moslems, Arab and non-Arab. The sacred doctrines of Islam command Moslems to make war on the Jews in order to either subjugate them to Moslem rule or to kill them. Those same sacred Islamic doctrines explain the cult of martyrdom ("suicide bombers") and anti-Jewish incitement. Therefore, to call for an end to the incitement to Jew-hatred is to call upon Moslems to violate the commands of their god and their prophet. Good luck with that!
