PA daily perpetuates libel that Israel committed massacre at Sabra and Shatila
Headline: “The Al-Maasara parade marked the anniversary of the Sabra and Shatila massacre”
“The procession’s participants dedicated their weekly procession to marking the 31st anniversary of the Sabra and Shatila massacre, to expressing solidarity with the [Palestinian] Prisoners’ Movement and to directing attention to the settler break-ins (the mere presence of Jews on the Temple Mount is considered a 'break in.' All visitors are subject to rigorous security checks, - Ed.) to the Al-Aqsa Mosque…
Coordinator of the National Anti-Wall and Anti-Settlement Committee in Bethlehem, Hassan Breijeh said: ‘What occurred in 1982 in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camp is the true face of the Antisemitic, Israeli occupation, that cold-bloodedly murdered more than 3,000 Martyrs (Shahids). This is the real ‘holocaust’ that was perpetrated and is perpetrated against the Palestinian people. However, the Palestinian revolution and the Palestinian people will not wait patiently for the number of victims to reach three of four million. The Palestinian people carrying out Ribat (religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) on its land is a living people and we will serve as a barrier against Zionism, even if we pay dearly for that.’
Breijeh added: ‘There is a racist, Nazi policy carried out by the Israeli government, pushing the settlers to invade Al-Aqsa on a daily basis, to bring about its division and destruction. Their plan to organize a procession [attended by] one million in the old city [of Jerusalem] on Tuesday, Sept. 24  will fail.”
Note: Sabra and Shatila are Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon. In 1982 during the first Lebanon War, a massacre at Sabra and Shatila was committed against Muslims by Christian Phalangists in Lebanon. The PA has a longstanding policy of falsely accusing Israel of committing the massacre or actively helping to carry it out.
