There was much criticism over the decision to invite Mahmoud Abbas, head of the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) terrorist organization, to the Paris march Sunday against Islamist terrorism following last week's bloody attacks that left 17 murdered.
One picture has particularly stood out from the march, in which Abbas is seen arm in arm with world leaders on the Paris street - however, in contrast to the somber expressions given the horrific attacks last week, Abbas is seen making a wide, eerie smile:
So incensed by the mocking smile was Aussie Dave, a writer with the pro-Israel blog Israellycool, that he decided to go on a photo-bombing spree, intersplicing Abbas's image in various tragic pictures. The result is poignant hilarity - judge for yourself (the original blog post can be found here):
Abbas's presence at the Paris rally didn't just anger Israelis, evidently it also upset his "unity partner," the Gaza-based terrorist organization Hamas.
“The participation of Abbas in this event is part of the hypocrisy and political acrobatics that Abbas commonly participates in,” said senior Hamas terrorist Mahmoud a-Zahar. “Abbas wants to show that he can fight terror, but he does not even know the meaning of terror."
That "hypocrisy" was vividly illustrated a day after Abbas took part in the march, as his Fatah faction on Monday glorified a terrorist attack from 1978, in which 37 Israeli civilians - including 12 children - were murdered on a bus.
