(DM Takes 3 Monkeys Role) DM Gantz Speaks with PA Chairman Abbas
Dr. Aaron Lerner 5 April 2022
When it comes to DM Gantz’s approach with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas it is
“see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”.
Gantz met with Abbas after Abbas’ spokesman along with the PA PM and other
PA officials condemned Israel for killing 3 terrorists who opened fire on
Israeli forces rather than surrender and called for Israel to be prosecuted
in international court for this “crime”. The terrorists were on the way to
murdering Israelis at the time they were stopped. The fourth member of the
team surrendered later without a scratch.
Not a word from DM Gantz about this.
The irony: When DM Gantz takes on the 3 Monkeys role, he makes it HARDER for
Abbas to behave himself since the Palestinian street sees that there are no
consequences to publicly attacking Israel for defending itself.
