Israel Channel 2 TV news, March 19, 2011.
Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: “If there’s incitement on my part, where is it?”
Israeli TV host: “On TV.”
Abbas: “No. I say, in Israel there’s also incitement.”
Host: “I’ll give you another example. When the Israeli public sees the PA glorifies terrorists, calling a square for [terrorist] Dalal Mughrabi, a street for [terrorist] Ayyash.”
Abbas: “These [namings] are not by the PA but by the municipalities.
The municipalities have a degree of independence.”
Host: “Are you personally against those commemorations?”
Abbas: “There’s no doubt, I’m against it. … Whatever we must do, you must do as well, but I condemn this action [naming square for Mughrabi].”
