Professor As'ad Abdul Rahman is the "Chairman of the Palestinian Encyclopedia," which I cannot find any information on. But he appears to have been a PLO member and has represented Mahmoud Abbas in speeches.

Here is the beginning of an article he wrote for Gulf News:

The Zionist state has taken the Holy Torah as a constitution for its “Jewish state”, thereby claiming ‘high morality’ to gain more support in the western world. Israel’s second claim is that it has the only true democracy in the Middle East and is “an extension to western values” in a region that lacks rule of law.

The claim that the Holy Torah stands as its law is contradicted by the actual resort to the Talmud, which has been written by Jewish Rabbis. Adherence to the Talmud rulings and edicts that are inconsistent with the Torah has prompted American Reform Jews to discard it as a racist text from their religious services. Such a description strips Israel of any claim of morality.

Israeli democracy is being contested by all Israeli human rights organisations — especially with regard to the “indefinite incarceration of Palestinians without charging them with any crime”. A true democracy can never be a colonial occupying power, imposing its military rule by force. A true democracy would not strip the occupied population of their political and civil rights, while stealing their lands in the name of a self-concocted religiosity that has no connection — except in name only — to the original spiritual/anti-material message that came to Prophet Moses. Israel has been imposing the immoral laws of the Talmud along with the colonial law of administrative detention to rob Palestinians — not only of their land and rights, but also of their national identity.
It is not even worth the time to fisk this. Virtually every sentence is wrong.

Here is proof positive that a Palestinian "scholar" and PLO representative is happy to publish nonsensical, antisemitic gibberish. It takes a mere three paragraphs of his own writings to establish that Professor Rahman knows nothing about Israel, nothing about Judaism, nothing about history, nothing about democracy and nothing about current events.

That's quite an achievement.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
