Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah movement, still held up as a "moderate" counterbalance to Hamas by many in the world, is actively calling for car terrorist attacks after a recent spate of three such attacks in the last two weeks.
The flurry of Fatah Facebook activity urging more attacks ramming cars into Jews was exposed and translated by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).
After a Hamas terrorist murdered a Border Patrol officer and wounded many others with his car in Jerusalem on Wednesday, and later another Arab driver ran into three soldiers, Fatah on Thursday posted numerous cartoons and images to its page calling for more such attacks.
One cartoon was titled "the run over organization," using a play of words on the Arabic da'es meaning "run over" and Da'esh, the Arabic acronym for Islamic State (ISIS). In the cartoon, Fatah urges "hit the gas at 199 (kmh, 125 mph - ed.) for Al-Aqsa."
A crossed-over traffic sign reads "Al-Aqsa," hinting at the ban on Jewish entry to the Temple Mount by the Jordanian Waqf (Islamic trust) that is in de facto control of the holiest site in Judaism.
Another Fatah post on Thursday reads simply "run over, friend, run over the foreign settler!"
Indeed numerous terrorist websites, including that of Hamas, have been touting a "car intifada" in the wake of the Wednesday attacks.
In yet another post from Wednesday, a picture of former PA Chairman Yasser Arafat shouting was subtitled "the Jews are defiling Al-Aqsa - will you not rage?"
PMW has documented how Abbas last month, just weeks before the recent series of lethal attacks, called to prevent Jews "defiling" the Temple Mount by "all means necessary," in an uncanny echo of Arafat's call for the 2000 Second Intifada. Abbas's call for terror was given heavy rotation on official PA TV.
Another post on Fatah's official Facebook page Thursday showed a man shooting an assault rifle on the ground with the words "restore your glory."
The incessant urging of terror was not only found on Fatah's main Facebook page; "The National Liberation Movement - Fatah" page also got into the terror action on Thursday, showing a cartoon of a car with Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) flag colors trying to ram three fleeing Jews.
The text under the cartoon reads "#Da'es ("run over" - ed.) - a new hashtag."
"May Allah protect the heroes," the same page wrote in another post Thursday, praising an alleged stabbing that was reported in the frequently fictitious Arab media.
"Reports of a stabbing of a Zionist security guard and taking of his weapon in North Jerusalem. May Allah protect the heroes. #Palestine_resists," the page bragged.
The same Fatah page also on Thursday posted a short video of Arab riots on the Temple Mount, writing "and they ask why we run them over!" The convoluted logic appears to be justifying the terror attacks in recent weeks with the Arab violence on the holiest site in Judaism.
