JERUSALEM, Israel — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused the Palestinian Authority management Sunday of denying the indisputable fact that Hamas murdered a whole bunch of civilians at a music competition on October 7 — simply as Palestinian chief Mahmoud Abbas had denied the Holocaust.
Today, the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah stated one thing totally preposterous. It denied that it was Hamas that carried out the horrible bloodbath at the nature competition close to Gaza. It really accused Israel of finishing up that bloodbath. This is an entire reversal of fact… pic.twitter.com/3omrplNDP1

In a video assertion in English, Netanyahu stated:
Today, the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah stated one thing totally preposterous. It denied that it was Hamas that carried out the horrible bloodbath at the nature competition close to Gaza. It really accused Israel of finishing up that bloodbath. This is an entire reversal of fact.
Abu Mazen [Abbas], who in the previous has denied the existence of the Holocaust, at present is denying the existence of the Hamas bloodbath and that’s unacceptable.
My purpose is that the day after we destroy Hamas, any future civil administration in Gaza doesn’t deny the bloodbath, doesn’t educate its kids to develop into terrorists, doesn’t pay for terrorists and doesn’t inform its kids that their final purpose in life is to see the destruction and dissolution of the State of Israel. That’s not acceptable and that’s not the technique to obtain peace.
The context was a declare by the Palestinian Authority that Israeli helicopters killed individuals at the music competition close to Re’im:
Unbelievable! An official doc from the PA Foreign Ministry is making an attempt to unfold a blood libel. The doc claims that IDF helicopters had been the ones that massacred the members of the Nova peace competition, and never the sub human Hamas terrorists. Not solely has Mahmoud… pic.twitter.com/9d3zXzM20p

The Palestinian declare, in flip, was based mostly on an article in Israel’s left-wing every day Ha’aretz that claimed Hamas made the determination to assault the music competition spontaneously somewhat than plotting the assault upfront.
Ample video footage exhibits Palestinian terrorists murdering festival-goers of their vehicles, in open fields, in bomb shelters, and even in moveable bathrooms. Some 260 individuals had been murdered, and lots of taken hostage.
As Breitbart News lately famous, Abbas has a private historical past of Holocaust denial, going again to his Soviet doctoral thesis, which tried to attenuate the variety of Jews murdered by the Nazis.
Netanyahu has stated that Israel will oppose any position for the Palestinian Authority in governing Gaza after the conflict due to its insurance policies of encouraging and subsidizing terror.
