Peace in the Holy Land

For John, BLUFThis seems rather blunt.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

Abbas aide:  ‘Wherever you see an Israeli, slit his throat’

Here is the sub-headline:
Comments from Fatah official spark a furious warning of repercussions from a senior Israeli officer
Well, as reported by Mr Dov Lieber, in the Times of Israel, yesterday.

Mr Sultan Abu al-Einein, an aide to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, doesn't bring much subtly to the discussion.  Here is the lede plus three:

An aide to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas called for gruesome violence against Israelis on Monday, sparking a scathing response from an Israeli official.

Sultan Abu al-Einein, an adviser to Abbas on civil society organizations and a Fatah Central Committee member, said during an interview with the Palestinian news site Donia al-Watan: “Wherever you find an Israeli, slit his throat.”

The comment from the senior Fatah official came in response to a question about normalization between members of his party and Israel.

When asked what he thought about normalization with Israel and Palestinian officials taking part in Israeli conferences, Abu al-Einein said: “If you ask me my blunt position, I would say — every place you find an Israeli, slit his throat. Likewise, I am against talks, negotiations, meetings, and normalization in all its forms with the Israeli occupation.”

I am not optimistic about peace talks in the Middle East.

And, when he uses the term "his", do you think he means all people or just males?  Maybe women will escape?  I doubt it, based on Daesh performance a little to the Northeast.
