PA police libel: 
Israel “is the number one cause of the spread of drugs
 in the Palestinian areas”
  • Israel wants to “destroy the young generations and the whole society"
by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

Describing the problem of the spread of marijuana nurseries in the Palestinian Authority, the chief of Tulkarem Police, Azzam Jabara, claimed “Israel is the number one cause of the spread of drugs in the Palestinian areas” and that this is done deliberately to destroy the Palestinian future:

“Tulkarem Police Chief Azzam Jabara said that Israel is the main cause of the spread of the [marijuana] nurseries and [its] distribution in Palestinian society...
He explained that the occupation (i.e., PA euphemism for Israel) intentionally does not pursue those who distribute drugs in the Palestinian territories, despite it knowing who they are, and this is while those who distribute them among the Jews are arrested and severe measures are taken against them. He added that this proves that the occupation is the number one cause of the spread of drugs in the Palestinian areas, in order to destroy the young generations and thus destroy the whole society."
[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, April 23, 2018]

This allegation is often made by the PA. Palestinian Media Watch reported earlier this year that PA Chairman Abbas said that “Israel is exporting drugs to us in frightening amounts.” 


The PA’s Coordinator of the Project of the War on Drugs in Jerusalem Issam Jweihan similarly said last year:


"A war is being waged [by Israel] against Jerusalem. This is an unconventional war in which unconventional weapons are being used. The goal of the war is clear - to Judaize the city and empty it of its [Arab] residents. They are using unconventional weapons. The weapon that brings the best results for the Israelis is drugs."

The following is a longer excerpt of the article mentioned above:

Headline: "Against marijuana"
"The crop of this drug [marijuana] is one of the crops that have spread in recent years in the homeland's various districts, and it is largely concentrated in Area C (i.e., areas of the West Bank under full Israeli administration according to the Oslo Accords) due to the full Israeli security control over them...
Actually, the lack of Palestinian security control in these areas has opened the door wide before dealers of this affliction.
It is known that the [PA] Security Forces' arrival in these areas requires coordination with the Israeli side, which makes it difficult for the forces to enter them at the right time...
Tulkarem Police Chief Azzam Jabara said that Israel is the main cause of the spread of the [marijuana] nurseries and [its] distribution in Palestinian society...
He explained that the occupation intentionally does not pursue those who distribute drugs in the Palestinian territories, despite it knowing who they are, and this is while those who distribute them among the Jews are arrested and severe measures are taken against them. He added that this proves that the occupation is the number one cause of the spread of drugs in the Palestinian areas, in order to destroy the young generations and thus destroy the whole society."
