Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas continued to defend the PA’s “pay-to-slay” policy of paying terrorists to murder Israelis in an Aug. 10 speech and declared that the Palestinians will one day “march into Jerusalem by the millions.”

Abbas gave the speech at the Jalazone Refugee Camp, which is close to Ramallah. In his message to Israel, he said: “Every stone you have built on our land and every house you have built on our land – there is no escaping that they will disappear, Allah willing. And the more they announce houses here or settlements there – they will all disappear, Allah willing, and will be in the garbage dump of history.” 

He added that “this land belongs to the Canaanites who were here 5,000 years ago – and we are the Canaanites! We will enter Jerusalem as fighters by the millions. We will all enter it, all of the Palestinian people and all of the Arab and Islamic and Christian nations! Everyone will enter Jerusalem!”

Abbas then denounced Israel’s law that reduces funding to the PA for each time they provide money to a terrorist.

“For us the Martyrs, the wounded, and the prisoners are the most sanctified,” Abbas said, “and therefore for months we have been rejecting their statements about deducting this money. Either it will be paid in full, down to the last penny, as they say, or we will not accept their money from them.” 

He then issued a warning to Israel: “Either you will agree to… give us our [money by] right or we will take it by all means.”

In July 2018, the Israeli Knesset passed a law to reduce around $138.2 million in funding to the PA until they cease payments to terrorists. The United States passed a similar law in March 2018 with the Taylor Force Act.

As the Journal has previously reported, Abbas has accused Israeli rabbis of poisoning Palestinian water and said that he “will not accept” any “Jewish State.”
