Activist Nadia Matar told a fervent pro-Israel crowd in a New York City synagogue Wednesday night that Israel must kill all the terrorist leaders, starting with Mahmoud Abbas. The speech was reported by journalist and blogger Philip Weiss.
“Today we must destroy all the terrorist organizations. We must kill all the terrorist leaders, starting with Mahmoud Abbas, and all others,” she said in a speech at the Edmond J. Safra Synagogue.
Matar compared Arab threats on the existence of Israel with the Nazi threat on the survival of Britain prior to World War II. She said that Winston Churchill, the British prime minister at the time, eventually understood that the Nazi regime had to be destroyed in order to bring peace.
“Nobody had any moral qualms at destroying the Nazi regime,” she told an appreciative audience. “We have to abolish the Oslo Agreements; there is no difference between the PA, the Islamic Jihad, the Hamas, whatever names you have. They are all terrorists and we cannot have peace with them."
Hamas and Hizbullah leaders formerly have issued threats to kill Abbas, whom they consider a traitor to the strategy of using terrorist attacks as a way to end the Jewish state. Israeli nationalists have charged him with being a “terrorist in disguise of suit and tie.” He took over the Palestinian Authority from Yasser Arafat in 2004.
Abbas, whose terrorist name is Abu Mazen, bankrolled the murder by terrorists of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. He also has writen a thesis supporting the denial of the Holocuast, frequently has said that violence must be used if diplomatic pressure does not succeed in establishing a new Arab country with mass immigration of foreign Arabs into Israel.
