Will MK Oren Hazan (Likud) be put on an international list of terrorists that includes Al Qaeda head Ayman al Zawahiri, Hamas Chief Khaled Meshaal and Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah?

The Palestinian Information Ministry has been lobbying various international bodies to include Hazan on the international terror list. If successful, Hazan's bank accounts can be frozen and his travel restricted.

According to a Channel 2 report, the Palestinian Authority demand stems from a Facebook post published by Hazan last month in which the MK wished for the death of Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas.

"Today, 58 years ago, the murderous terrorist organization Fatah was established," Hazan wrote, "Abu Jihad was assassinated in 1988. Abu Iyad was assassinated in 1991. Abu Sa'id, who was inducted in 1994. Abu Amar was transferred to a world that was all bad in 2004. Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas) - already with one foot in the grave".

A member of the Fatah Central Committee said that "this is part of the wild incitement in the Knesset and the government, and we demand that the Israeli government renounce the story. We started and will continue to spread the story in every possible way".
