Fatah Shows Photo of Netanyahu with Noose

January 4, 2015  

Fatah pulled down an offensive image showing the terror group’s flag over skulls with Jewish stars from its Facebook page Saturday, after a CNN interview exposed the photo and caused a PR snafu for the Palestinian Authority (PA).

However, the group then merely replaced the image with another offensive graphic – this time, showing Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu awaiting execution by lynching, in connection to the PA going to the International Criminal Court (ICC) to file war crimes against Israel. 

The Facebook fiasco began with the image above, which circulated on social media for several days before the CNN interview published Friday. 

When asked about the photo, a member of Fatah’s Central Committee claimed that a “lone poster” had posted the image to its page, and had been ordered to remove it.

“Fatah did not design this image,” Mahmoud al-Aloul said. The person who posted it to Fatah’s page “is currently being asked to remove it. The image and the text do not reflect the opinions of Fatah.” The image went down shortly thereafter. 

However, hours later, the Netanyahu-noose photo went live, 0404 news reports Sunday. 

Fatah has often used its Facebook page as a vehicle for incitement, and activity on its social media accounts to this end have increased over the past several months. 

In November, after several stabbings and “car rampages” murdering Israelis near the Jerusalem light rail, Fatah took to Facebook to publish a slew of cartoons, videos, and other media praising the attacks and calling for more terrorism against Israelis and Jews. 

Days earlier, the ruling faction of the PA called for a “day of rage” against Israel on its page after Israeli security forces killed Mu’taz Ibrahim Khalil Hijazi, the terrorist behind the Yehuda Glick assassination attempt. 

And over the summer, Fatah was instrumental in spreading a trend for Palestinian Arabs worldwide to post photos on social media of a three-fingered gesture, which indicated support for the abduction and murder of three Israeli teenagers.
