The Jordanian Palestinian people - a Communist operation

| No Comments

The first person to organize the Hashamite Jordanians (whom the rest of Jordan did not want and were more than happy to be rid of) was Yasser Arafat. He was the son of an Egyptian merchant, became a radical, spent some time in jail and was ultimately recruited by the Russian KGB. They feared that Israel would take over the oil producing regions so they wanted someone to prevent their expansion. Arafat spent about nine years in Moscow and his initial efforts at recruiting the Hashamite Jordanians Palestinians were funded by Moscow. More reading here, here and here.

Now it seems that Arafat's sucessor - Mahmoud Abbas - was also a Communist spy - from The Washington Post:

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas was once a KGB spy code-named ‘Mole,’ report claims
A report Wednesday night by Israel’s Channel 1 News seems to indicate that he was a KGB agent for a period of time, although the Palestinian Authority very quickly denied the claims, calling them another Israeli slur against the struggling president.

The news report, which was based on research carried out by two Israeli professors, revealed that the cryptic information was hidden in documents from the Mitrokhin archive, a collection of handwritten notes by KGB archivist Vasili Mitrokhin. Mitrokhin smuggled his notes out of Russia in the 1990s when he defected to Britain. Cambridge University's Churchill College made the papers public in 2014.

In the documents, the report says, just few lines refer to the now octogenarian Palestinian leader: His code name was “Krotov” or Mole and he worked with the Soviet secret police and security agency in Damascus circa 1983.

Gideon Remez and Isabella Ginor, the two researchers from the Truman Research Institute at Hebrew University of Jerusalem, said that Abbas worked for the KGB under Mikhail Bogdanov, who was then based in Damascus and is now Russia’s special envoy to the Middle East.

On Monday, Bogdanov held meetings in Jerusalem with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in an attempt to broker a summit between the Israeli and Palestinian leaders. Wednesday’s news report also pointed out that Russian President Vladimir Putin was a KGB lieutenant colonel during the 1980s.

This is rich - the top two people in Palestinian governement work for the Russians. As for brokering peace? There will never be peace for the Palestinians. Their opposition to Israel is the core of their identity and without that, they would be lost. They have no culture, no arts, no civilization, no education, no science. They only have their Russian-manufactured hate of Israel. They are not a nation. They are not a people. They are the dregs of a long-defunct KGB operation.
