PA Prime Minister Demands Israel Hand Over Rifle that Killed Al Jazeera Journalist After Refusing to Hand Over Fatal Bullet


In a typical but hilarous move, the Palestinian Authority has demanded that Israel hand over the rifle that killed Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, even though they have categorically refused to hand over the fatal bullet.

Abu Akleh was killed in a firefight between IDF soldiers and Palestinian terrorists in the town of Jenin.

The Palestinians and Al Jazeera immediately claimed without evidence that Israel had deliberately killed her.

Israel is conducting an inquiry and asked for the bullet that killed Abu Akleh in order to conduct ballistics tests. The PA categorically refused.

Now, PA Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh has proclaimed, "We demand that they hand over the rifle that assassinated Shireen Abu Akleh."

Even more ludicrous was Shtayyeh's excuse: "We refused a joint investigation, because those who fabricated the history of a people, stealing land and homeland, can fabricate a narrative. We do not trust them."

If Israel hands over the rifle, which it almost certainly will not, we can count on the Palestinians to lie about it.

There has been no international condemnation of Shtayyeh's racist claim that Jewish history is "fabricated."
