With the help of Allah, every martyr will be in heaven, and every wounded will get his reward.”
-Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, September 16th, 2015
“We plan to eliminate the State of Israel and establish a purely Palestinian state. We will make life unbearable for Jews by psychological warfare and population explosion. Jews will not want to live among Arabs. I have no use for Jews. They are and remain Jews.”
-Cofounder of the Palestinian Authority Yasser Arafat, 1996
The Palestinian Authority (PA) was established as a result of the 1993 Oslo Accords, which recognized the newly formed PA as the interim autonomous governing body to oversee the Gaza Strip and Areas A and B of the West Bank. In 2006, Hamas took over control of the Gaza Strip. The PA currently maintains control over part of the West Bank (Judea and Samaria). Since Oslo, the Palestinian Authority under Yasser Arafat and now under President Mahmoud Abbas incites terrorism against Jews and Israelis, violating a core tenant of the negotiations. The PA continues to violate the Oslo Accords and has refused to condemn terrorism, but instead encourages, celebrates, and awards Palestinian terrorists.
