Israeli Rabbi Calls to Poison Palestinian Water Supplies
An Israeli Rabbi, Shlomo Mlmad, the chairman of the so-called Council of Rabbis in West Bank settlements, had reportedly called on Israeli settlers to poison Palestinians through their water supply.
According to Israeli anti-occupation organization “Breaking the Silence”, the call for poisoning Palestinian water aim to push the Palestinians to leave their villages and pave the way for Israeli settlers to take over their lands.Israeli rabbis
The Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) has denounced the move as an incitment against Palestinian people.
“This is an incitement and a call for killing the Palestinians,” Wasil Abu Youssef, a member of the PLO Executive Committee, told Anadolu Agency on Sunday.
He said such opinions by Jewish rabbis “prove that Israel is not a real peace partner”.
“Dozens of similar orders were made by rabbis that called for killing Palestinians, robbing their lands and farmlands and destroying their property,” he said.
The PLO said in a statement that the rabbi’s order encourages settlers to stage assaults against Palestinians.
“Hundreds of incidents were documented against Palestinian residents because of such racist advisories,” said the statement issued by the PLO’s national office for the defense of land.
