Apparently, President Trump’s meeting with Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem on May 23rd wasn’t as pleasant as it seemed. Trump lost his temper with the Palestinian and yelled at him for not being truthful when the two met in Washington D.C. a few weeks earlier.
According to a report by Israel’s Channel Two an angry Trump yelled at Abbas during their talks last Tuesday because of the Palestinian Authority’s continued incitement against Jews and against Israel.
“You tricked me in DC!” the President was reported to have hollered at the stunned Palestinian, “You talked there about your commitment to peace, but the Israelis showed me your involvement in incitement.”The American source told Channel Two that Trump’s anger was followed by several minutes of shocked silence from the Palestinians–the meeting was very tense before the two sides managed to get back on track.
The two had met at the White House three weeks earlier (May 3rd) and at their after-meeting press opportunity President Trump urged Abbas to put a stop to the incitement.
“… there cannot be lasting peace unless the Palestinian leaders speak in a unified voice against incitement to violate — and violence and hate. There’s such hatred. But hopefully there won’t be such hatred for very long. All children of G-d must be taught to value and respect human life, and condemn all of those who target the innocent.”
Chairman Abbas answered Trump by saying there was no incitement, his people were teaching their kids to be peaceful,
“Mr. President, I affirm to you that we are raising our youth, our children, our grandchildren on a culture of peace. And we are endeavoring to bring about security, freedom and peace for our children to live like the other children in the world, along with the Israeli children in peace, freedom and security.”
Prime Minister Netanyahu was quick to point out Abbas’ lie. Speaking in Jerusalem the day after the White House meeting he said,
“I heard President Abbas yesterday say that they teach, Palestinians teach their children peace. That’s unfortunately not true. They name their schools after mass murderers of Israelis and they pay terrorists. But I hope that it’s possible to achieve a change and to pursue a genuine peace. This is something Israel is always ready for. I’m always ready for genuine peace.”
Bibi was being truthful, Just take a look at this video from Palestinian Media Watch:
From the time they are very young, the Palestinian Authority teaches its kids to kill Jews via the children’s entertainment on the PA controlled TV station, books, public education, social media, etc. Palestinian streets, squares and entertainment venues are frequently named after terrorists who have murdered Israelis.
Netanyahu offered more than words. Channel Two reported that the Prime Minister followed up by providing the American President with evidence that Chairman Abbas was not only lying, but he was actually participating in the incitement…
