Thank You Abbas?

In case you didn’t know, the PA sent eight firefighting trucks to assist Israel in putting out the fires their people started! That was real magnanimous of Abbas. He would more of an ally if he would stop the incitement dead in its tracks. But let’s remember, Abbas is not an ally rather he is an opportunist. He takes advantage of the strong winds and encourages his people to start fires. Then he comes out looking like a savior by sending fire trucks to put out these fires!
I can understand these are all part of Abbas’s strategy to make gains at Israel’s expense. What I can’t understand is Prime Minister Netanyahu’s public recognition of Abbas’s efforts to help put out the fires! After Shabbat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu actually contacted Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas and thanked him for sending firefighters to assist in extinguishing the fires in Israel. He also said he appreciates the fact that both Jews and Arabs opened their homes to fire victims.
This “thank you” probably comes from a deep appreciation for anyone, even Abbas, who protects our people from harm.  Let us hope Elor Azarya will also get a “thank you”.
