“What are you trying to achieve by sending rockets?” Mr. Abbas asked on Palestine TV, without explicitly naming Hamas, which recently lent its backing to his government after a seven-year rift. “We prefer to fight with wisdom and politics.”

Hamas officials assailed Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for his criticism of the persistent rocket attacks on Israel, Israel Radio reported on Saturday.
Leaders of the Islamist movement which rules Gaza said that Abbas, who heads the rival Fatah faction, was “aiding the enemy” by making his statement. Hamas accused the PA chief of “acting as a third party” while branding him “a criminal” and “a Likud member.”

Here’s what Abbas’ Fatah had to say to Israelis as hundreds of rockets were being fired at them from Gaza: “Death will reach you from the south to the north. Flee our country and you won’t die. The KN-103 rocket is on its way toward you.”

I think I’ll take my chances with the Jewish newspaper.
The Abbas (“Abu Mazen”) and Fatah narratives remain constrained or dead-ended in light of the financially and morally bankrupting war on Israel prosecuted by Hamas: either Fatah retakes Gaza, transforms its government, and writes paychecks to it, or it stalls right where it is, pleading for peace while continuing its anti-Semitic / anti-Zionist campaigns for the destruction of Israel (an act of barbaric theft making way for the renewed persecution of Jewry)
