Palestinian Leadership Congratulates North Korean Regime

Thursday, August 17, 2017 |  Israel Today Staff

Two peas in a pod, is how some might describe fellow despots Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

On Tuesday, Abbas made no secret of his affinity for the regime in Pyongyang by issuing a statement congratulating Kim on the occasion of North Korea's "Liberation Day."

The holiday marks the fall of North Korea to what is today one of the most repressive regimes on the face of the earth.

"The Korean people offered the most precious sacrifices for their freedom and dignity," stated Abbas, ignoring the enormous suffering and oppression of the citizens of North Korea.

Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett said he was not surprised by Abbas' position, noting that it's not the first time the Palestinian leadership has aligned itself with history's most villainous regimes.

"First Hitler, then S. Hussein, now Kim Jong-un. If you want to take a moral stand, check who the Palestinians support and do the opposite," tweeted Bennett.
