Standing in front of European Parliament last week, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas once again accused Israel of committing genocide against the Palestinians, this time claiming that Palestinians were suffering mass-murder on a scale “the likes of which have never been seen or heard of ever by the international community.”
Abbas falsely accused Israeli rabbis of poisoning Palestinian water supplies, harkening back to a medieval anti-Semitic libel. During the 14th century, as the “Black Plague” spread across Europe, false accusations that Jews were responsible for the disease led to the massacre of entire Jewish communities.
Of course Israel is not committing genocide against the Palestinians, by any stretch of the imagination. If it was, it surely is doing a lousy job of it.
