British Prime Minister Liz Truss is facing a smear campaign by the Palestinians because she dared to publicly state her support for Israel. Truss is also under attack because she talked about the possibility of moving the British Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
The campaign against the British PM is reminiscent of the slander the Palestinians used to direct against some of US President Donald Trump’s senior advisers and representatives, including Ambassador David Friedman, Jason Greenblatt and Jared Kushner. Like Truss, the Trump administration officials were targeted because of their support for Israel.
“I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Genesis 12:3
Palestinian leaders have demonstrated over the years that they do not hesitate to use slurs and derogatory remarks against any Western official who dares to voice support for Israel or does not share their hatred of Israel. For these leaders, anyone who articulates support for Israel is a “racist” and “extremist.”
The Palestinian attacks on pro-Israel Westerners aims to intimidate and bully them and dissuade others from expressing similar views. The Palestinian message to these Westerners: “If you side with Israel, you are hateful and racist Zionists” – meaning , “If you are not a Jew, you might as well be: you are just as horrible as one.”
In 2018, Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas described then US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman (who is Jewish) as a “son of a dog.” In another instance, Abbas expressed hope that God would “destroy” Friedman’s house.
Palestinian columnists affiliated with Abbas often referred to Friedman as a “racist Zionist” and a “fascist settler.”
