Abbas @ UN
By Micah Halpern

Friday September 27, 2019

I've Been Thinking:

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas addressed the United Nations General Assembly yesterday. He took advantage of the opportunity to lambast the United States and Israel.

Abbas used the term aggressive numerous times. That is in and of itself telling.

Of the subject of US and President Trump this is what Abbas said: "The United States has taken illegal and aggressive measures.

No surprise there. Abbas is very upset that the Trump administration has recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and has recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

Speaking about Israel Abbas used the same term aggression but this time around he a very different tone and said: The international community must put an end to Israeli aggression and arrogance."

Aggression and arrogance. Abbas is not even dealing with the legal aspect of aggression, but with arrogance -- the attitude. In this speech Abbas invoked the arrogant and aggressive stereotype of the Jew. It is a classic anti-Semitic canard. The Jew is pushy. The Jew is demanding. The Jew is haughty. The Jews is out of his place.

The speech delivered by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas at the United Nations General Assembly was vitriolic and anti-Semitic. Not surprisingly when Abbas spoke the words Israeli aggression and arrogance, he was met with great applause.

Welcome to the United Nations GA, circa 2019.
