National Missions Minister Orit Strock participated on Tuesday evening at a conference of directors of Religious Zionist institutions being held in Eilat.
Following the ramming attack at the Tapuah junction, Strock commented on the incitement by the Palestinian Authority, explained the mechanism behind the recent attacks and accused the PA of pushing for the attacks to take place.
"It is important that we know who we are facing. It is important that we understand where these attacks are coming from. Attack after attack, after attack. This is not a coincidence, these are not 'lone wolf' attacks. There is a guiding hand here, and this hand is the hand of the Palestinian Authority. On Monday evening, Arafat's former advisor stood at the Knesset podium and accused us of enacting a law that contradicts international law," Strock said.
"He dares to say that we are contradicting international law when he, as Arafat's advisor, is responsible for the only law book in the world that demands, calls for, and rewards the murder of Jews. Let us understand, this is the Palestinian Authority. Those who raise its flag are raising the flag of an entity whose rule book says what was written only four times in history: In the days of Pharaoh, in the days of the evil Haman, in the days of Nazi Germany, and here next to us in the Palestinian Authority. A law book that says 'kill Jews and whoever kills more Jews will get more,'" she added.
Later in her speech, Minister Strock continued to describe the extent of the incitement in the Palestinian Authority.
"Worse than that, a minister in the Palestinian Authority issues a pamphlet every Thursday evening that is distributed to all the imams in all the mosques, about what should be spoken in the Friday sermons. He informs them, 'You will talk about jihad, and how holy those who do jihad are.' This is what we are dealing with. It is impossible to look the other way when we are forced to deal with such a reality. There is no nation, no country in the world, that is forced to deal with such a reality of a rule book that calls for the murder of its citizens."
Over 300 senior leaders from the Religious Zionist sector are participating in the conference in Eilat.
During the conference, ministers, senior officials, former head of the Mossad Yossi Cohen, senior figures in the media world, the Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem Rabbi Shlomo Amar and other personalities will speak.
