Israeli “enemy” has been carrying out a “Palestinian holocaust” for the past 100 years – PA daily op-ed

Excerpt of an op-ed by Hanan Bakir, regular columnist for the official PA daily

Headline: “The death industry”

“The massacre in Sabra and Shatila is nothing but a link in the chain of the Palestinian holocaust that has been continuing for 100 years. We stand against an enemy that is only good at producing death. A small change can be made to the famous statement ‘I think, therefore I am’ – ‘I kill, therefore I am,’ so that it will match the situation.

Sabra and Shatila are Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon. In 1982, during the first Lebanon War, Muslim residents of the camps were massacred by Christian Phalangists. The PA has a longstanding policy of falsely accusing Israel of committing the massacre or actively helping to carry it out.
