Palestinian Authority and Fatah officials continue to praise terrorist murderers as "martyrs" and "heroes," Palestinian Media Watch reports Monday, amidst an unending string of terror attacks.
"More resistance and escalation against the occupation everywhere," he stated on his Facebook page. "Let us make the country a hell for the enemies and tell them clearly, in a way that will split the sky - resist, boycott, advance, rise up, for our land is forbidden to the enemies, and all the members of the Shabiba (i.e., Fatah youth and student movement) are potential Martyrs for the beloved Palestine."
Parents rise to incite
Meanwhile, the parents of several terrorists who were shot dead after attacking or killing Jews have risen to this call, praising their children's deaths in Palestinian Arab media.
On Sunday, the father of Amjad Al-Jundi, an 18-year-old terrorist who stabbed an Israeli soldier and stole his weapon in the southern Israeli city of Kiryat Gat on Oct. 7, 2015, and who was shot dead by Israeli police, called his son an "offering" to the Mount and congratulated him on his death, according to PMW. His remarks were featured in PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida.
The official PA daily further reported that the terrorist's mother "sat among the women who came to the Martyr's home in order to see him one last time, making cries of joy and blessing herself: 'My son is a groom, congratulations.'"
Both parents of terrorist Muhannad Halabi, who stabbed two Israelis to death in Jerusalem on Oct. 3, celebrated as well. A video has emerged of Halabi's mother singing over his martyrdom, and his father was quoted in the independent newspaper Wattan.
"He avenged the women carrying out Ribat (religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) at the Al-Aqsa [Mosque]... He avenged them against the impure enemies... He made everyone lift his head up high. Muhannad, may he find favor in the eyes of Allah," the elder Halabi said.
