On the second day of the UN "Human Rights" Council meeting in Geneva on March 1, 2016, Palestinian Authority Foreign Affairs Representative Riyad al-Maliki claimed that the recent spate of stabbings, shootings, and car rammings by Palestinians against Israelis is a "popular wave." According to al-Maliki, it is Israelis trying to defend themselves from Palestinian attacks who are guilty of acts of terror, and akin to ISIS.
In his words: "Since the beginning of the last popular wave...the people of Palestine face a systematic terror by Israel...[W]e can hear the sound of bullets and crimes perpetrated by ISIS and we can hear the sounds of bulldozers of the Israeli occupation while establishing illegal colonies..."
Al-Maliki also called for states to prevent Jews from entering. In his words: "I call on all the countries to...not allowing the entry of illegal settlers into their countries."
