In a speech before the Palestinian National Council on Monday, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas suggested — what else? — that the Jews are responsible for their own persecution:

Abbas said in his speech that Jews living in Europe had suffered massacres “every 10 to 15 years in some country since the 11th century and until the Holocaust”.
