I am not an historian, decent author or a journalist, and the chances are that unless there is a link or reference to somewhere else, the perpetrator is yours truly – Renaud Sarda. I created this blog as a focal point, to arm people with arguments and facts that they can perhaps use to counter biased media reporting and anti-Israel propaganda, and to help counter (BDS) campaign. I am a Zionist/Sephardi/Jew who will fly the Israeli flag, and defend whatever Israel does.

Fatah threatens Israelis: "Leave immediately"
by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik May 14, 2014
"Warning" sign shows assault rifle and map including the PA and all of Israel:
"This is a land of a Palestinian state"
by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik
On one of its official Facebook pages the Fatah movement, which is headed by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, yesterday posted a warning to Israelis. A sign showed an assault rifle and a map of "Palestine" that included both PA areas and all of Israel. In Arabic, Hebrew, and English it said: "Warning. This is a land of a Palestinian state and the occupation to leave immediately" (English original).

Internationally, Abbas continuously affirms the Palestinians' desire for a two-state solution and a Palestinian state on the 1967-borders. However, that statement is not reflected in this poster, nor in many other statements and messages to the Palestinian people.
"Israel will come to an end. If I say that I want to remove it from existence, this will be great, great, [but] it is hard. This is not a [stated] policy. You can't say it to the world. You can say it to yourself." [Al-Jazeera, Sept. 23, 2011]
He recently also stated about Israelis that "I believe that Allah will gather them so we can kill them. I am informing the murderer of his death." [Official PA TV, March 12, 2014]
Palestinian Media Watch has documented that Fatah continuouslyuses its Facebook pages to deny Israel's right to exist, promote violence, and glorify terrorists.
