Peace Partners?

The Jerusalem Post, 11 June 2013
Sir – The editorial “Rami Hamdallah?” (June 6), asks what possessed US Secretary of State Joh Kerry to praise the appointment of Rami Hamdallah as the prime minister of the Palestinian Authority.

PA President Mahmoud Abbas for appointing Rami Hamdallah as prime minister is unfortunate.  Hamdallah is president of An-Najah University in Nablus, a hotbed of anti-Semitism and hatred for Israel and the US, to lead the Palestinian government.

At Hamdallah’s university, an art exhibition was mounted honoring the slaughter by a Palestinian Arab suicide bomber of women, men, children, and entire families eating pizza in the heart of Jerusalem.  The artists had constructed a replica of the Sbarro Pizzeria, site of the massacre.
Visitors pushed to see realistically sculpted body parts and pizza slices strewn throughout an environment set for a performance artwork.  Wearing a terrorist’s military uniform and black mask, the performance artist entered the mock pizzeria under a sign “Kosher Sbarro” and set off a simulated explosion to the cheers of the crowd. Upon entering and leaving, the visitors enthusiastically wiped their feet on Israeli and American flags used as doormats.

The An-Najah art exhibit reveals the true beliefs of “moderate peace partners” Abbas and Hamdallah.  Kerry needs to acknowledge this dangerous change of guard in Ramallah as the enemy of peace.
