A Palestinian Authority minister encouraged people to follow the example of Munich massacre mastermind Abu Daoud. In a program on Hizbullah’s Al-Manar television earlier this month, PA Minister Mohammed Ishtayeh praised the terrorists who planned the massacre of Israeli athletes at the Olympic Games in Munich in 1972.

“The martyr Abu Daoud continues the convoy of martyrs who fell for the sake of Palestine,” the PA minister said. “We all follow his path. 

“As for the claim that history can be written in a different way, I think it is unjust to say that Palestinian history can be written in a different ink.

“The ink in which Palestinian history has been written is red. I believe it will continue to be written in red ink.”

The PA officials put an end to any doubts that the Palestinian Authority is curtailing incitement by adding that Daoud was ”officially eulogized by Fatah and [the] Palestinian establishment.” Fatah is the party headed by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, with whom Washington wishes Israel to negotiate.
