Fatah: "Celebrations throughout Old City of Jerusalem" after attempted murder
of "despicable" Rabbi Yehuda Glick
Advisor to PA Chairman Abbas on terrorist:
"The heroic Martyr (Shahid)...
who carried out the assassination attempt
against Zionist Rabbi Yehuda Glick"
by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik
Fatah celebrated the attempted murder of Rabbi Yehuda Glick yesterday in Jerusalem and glorified the shooter. Rabbi Yehuda Glick is the Chairman of the Temple Mount Heritage Foundation that organizes educational activites to increase awareness of the centrality of the Temple Mount in Jewish heritage. The foundation also works to promote civil rights for Jews to pray on the Temple Mount.
Fatah referred to Rabbi Glik as an "extremist Zionist," called the attempt on his life "the assassination of the despicable Glick," and honored the terrorist who was subsequently killed by Israel as a "heroic Martyr."
Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' advisor on NGOs and Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein shared a poster published by Fatah's Jerusalem branch praising the terrorist and referring to him as the "heroic Martyr" on the way "to his wedding":
"Fatah's Jerusalem branch accompanies its heroic Martyr to his wedding, Mutaz Ibrahim Khalil Hijazi, who carried out the assassination attempt against Zionist Rabbi Yehuda Glick."
Last week Palestinian Media Watch documented that this same advisor to Abbas glorified a terrorist who murdered a three-month-old baby.
In addition, PA TV has presented Abbas himself as a central force promoting violence. A video clip of Abbas calling to "use all ways" to prevent Jews from approaching the Temple Mount was aired 25 times in the last two weeks - an indication that the PA is promoting the ongoing riots and terror.
The Fatah poster honoring the terrorist shows a picture of the terrorist with Jerusalem in the background.
The following is the image published on Fatah's Facebook page, "Fatah - The Main Page":
"The heroic Martyr (Shahid) Mutaz Hijazi who carried out the assassination of the despicable [Rabbi Yehuda] Glick. Praise and eternity to the Martyrs..."
Text on the Poster:
"The Palestinian National Liberation Movement - Fatah announces the death
of its heroic Martyr, 'the Martyr of Jerusalem'
Mutaz Ibrahim Khalil Hijazi
who carried out the assassination of Rabbi Yehuda Glick
and who rose to Heaven on Thursday, August 30, 2014,
after a gunfight with the forces of the Zionist occupation in Jerusalem"

Another Fatah Facebook Text:
"Celebrations throughout the Old City of Jerusalem - the attempted assassination of the extremist Zionist Yehuda Glick, who engineered the invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and heads the council of the 'Temple Mount' Faithful, with three bullets as he was leaving a conference of the alleged 'Temple' [Mount] Faithful"

The following are the image and text posted on Fatah's Facebook page, and re-posted by Abbas' advisor Sultan Abu Al-Einein:
"Martyr (Shahid) Mutaz Hijazi,the Martyr of Dawn in Jerusalem, is a released prisoner. He died as a Martyr (Shahid) following a gunfight. The occupation forces accuse him of attempting to assassinate the Zionist Rabbi Yehuda Glick."
Text on poster shared by Abbas' advisor, Abu Al-Einein:
"'Among the believers are men true to what they promised Allah. Among them is he who has fulfilled his vow [to the death], and among them is he who awaits [his chance]. And they did not alter [the terms of their commitment] by any alteration.' (Sura 33:23, trans. Sahih International)
With great honor and pride
