Is the Leader of the Palestinian Authority Inciting to Launch a New Terror Campaign Against Israel?

From Palestinian Media Watch:
On Oct. 17, 2014, Abbas claimed that Jews’ presence on the Temple Mount was “defiling” an Islamic holy site. He called “to prevent them, in any way,” which is a Palestinian euphemism for violence and terror. Thus implicitly encouraging Palestinians to attack Israelis, PA TV replayed Abbas’ call for violence 19 times in three days and eventually broadcast it 32 times during the next month. During that month numerous Palestinians heeded the call, using knives, guns and car rammings to murder 12 Israelis.

On Dec. 6, 2017, the day US President Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, PA TV and radio started rebroadcasting Abbas’ old call to confront Israelis in “any way.” By the beginning of January it had been rebroadcast at least 41 times.
