The Palestinian terrorists who have killed several Israelis during the last few weeks in Jerusalem are being presented as heroes by both the Palestinian Authority and Fatah.

 

On official PA TV, Fatah official Muhammad Al-Biqa'i from Lebanon sent blessings of "praise and esteem" to Al-Shaloudi (terrorist who killed 2), Mutaz (terrorist who attempted to murder Rabbi Yehuda Glick) and Ibrahim Al-Akari (terrorist who killed 2). He then honored the murderers for heeding the call that "Jerusalem needs blood to purify itself of Jews":

 

"They are the ones who heard the call of Yasser Arafat, while the Arab and Islamic nation ignored his call: 'Millions of Martyrs (Shahids) are marching to Jerusalem'. They came out with their weapons, with their true belief that Jerusalem needs blood to purify itself of Jews."

Two days ago, representative of the PA Ministry of Religious Affairs Hassan Al-Saifi, made a similar statement in a speech where he "addressed the suffering of the residents of Jerusalem and the continuing Israeli desecration of Al-Aqsa" and declared "that Jerusalem has no need of declarations or religious rulings, but rather needs the religious scholars in particular to fulfill their duty, rush to Jerusalem and offer sacrifices and blood." [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 14, 2014]

 

Such statements show that the PA and Fatah - both headed by Mahmoud Abbas - have successfully demonized Jews and presented them as a great threat to Jerusalem and to its Muslim holy sites, as has been documented by Palestinian Media Watch.

 

Last week, on a PA TV game show, the host opened the show by specifically honoring two terrorists who together have killed 4 and wounded dozens by running pedestrians over with their cars, as well as the terrorist who attempted to murder Rabbi Yehuda Glick. The host praised them for "confronting the settler herds" and for "what you gave and sacrificed":

 

 

 

"Greetings and honor to our heroic Martyrs, the Martyrs of Jerusalem - Hijazi (terrorist who attempted to murder Rabbi Yehuda Glick), Al-Shaloudi (terrorist who killed 2), Al-Akari (terrorist who killed 2), and lately also Kheir Al-Din Hamdan from Kafr Kanna (Palestinian man shot to death by Israeli police). Our greetings to the Martyrs' families. We stand submissive and humbled in view of what you gave and sacrificed. You are confronting the ever-aggressive settler herds in the streets of Jerusalem."

The following are longer excerpts of the statements and reports on official PA TV and in the official PA daily:

 

"Many religious scholars and clerics have emphasized the importance of revitalizing and uniting the efforts and means on the local, regional and international levels for Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa [compound], and to protect it [Al-Aqsa] from the occupation. In addition, they noted that the defense of Jerusalem would not be carried out with declarations, announcements and the publication of religious rulings (Fatwas), but by rushing towards Al-Aqsa and through sacrifice. These statements were made at a conference for Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa held yesterday [Nov. 13, 2014] by the Ministry of Religious Affairs [in the Gaza Strip], under the patronage of [PA] Minister of Religious Affairs Yusuf Ida'is and with the participation of numerous religious scholars, clerics and public personalities.

Ministry of Religious Affairs representative Hassan Al-Saifi gave a speech in which he addressed the suffering of the residents of Jerusalem and the continuing Israeli desecration of Al-Aqsa. In addition, he noted that Jerusalem has no need of declarations or religious rulings, but rather needs the religious scholars in particular to fulfill their duty, rush to Jerusalem and offer sacrifices and blood. In addition, he called on the religious scholars to remove their turbans, be present on the ground, and revitalize the role of the youth in defending Al-Aqsa."

They are the ones who heard the call of Yasser Arafat, while the Arab and Islamic nation ignored his call: 'Millions of Martyrs (Shahids) are marching to Jerusalem'.

Official PA TV game show The Box:

PA TV host: "First, greetings, as always, to the heroic and brave children of Jerusalem who these days are confronting the settler herds at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, in all the neighborhoods of the Old City and all the neighborhoods outside of Jerusalem... Greetings and honor to our heroic Martyrs, the Martyrs of Jerusalem - Hijazi (terrorist who attempted to murder Rabbi Yehuda Glick), Al-Shaloudi (terrorist who killed 2), Al-Akari (terrorist who killed 2), and lately also Kheir Al-Din Hamdan from Kafr Kanna (Palestinian man shot to death by Israeli police). Our greetings to the Martyrs' families. We stand submissive and humbled in view of what you gave and sacrificed. You are confronting the ever-aggressive settler herds in the streets of Jerusalem."

Mutaz Hijazi - Islamic Jihad member and released prisoner who attempted to assassinate Rabbi Yehuda Glick, a prominent activist working to assure rights for Jews to visit and pray on the Temple Mount, on Oct. 29, 2014. The assassination attempt took place following a conference on establishing times and places for Jews to pray on the Temple Mount. Glick was seriously wounded in the attack; Hijazi was killed soon afterwards when he opened fire on an Israeli police force that was attempting to arrest him.

 

Abd Al-Rahman Al-Shaloudi - On Oct. 22, 2014, Al-Shaloudi drove his car into a light-rail station in Jerusalem, killing three-month-old Israeli-American Haya Zissel-Brown and Karen Mosquera, 22, of Ecuador, and injuring 7 others. He was shot by police while attempting to flee the scene, and later died of his wounds.

 

Ibrahim Al-Akari - Hamas terrorist from East Jerusalem who deliberately ran over people at a light-rail station in Jerusalem on Nov. 5, 2014, killing Jidan Assad, 38, and Shalom Aharon Badani, 17, and injuring at least 13 others. Al-Akari was shot and killed by Israeli police officers who arrived on the scene.
 

Muhammad Abu Khdeir - Palestinian teen kidnapped and murdered by Israeli extremists in Jerusalem on July 2, 2014, in revenge for the kidnapping and murder of Israeli teens Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar and Naftali Frenkel in the West Bank on June 12. Following Abu Khdeir's murder, Palestinians took to the streets of East Jerusalem in violent and continuous protests. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli ministers immediately condemned the killing in the strongest terms. Israeli police arrested six Israeli suspects on July 6th; under interrogation, three of the suspects confessed to murdering Khdeir.

 

Muhammad Sunuqrut - a 16-year-old Palestinian killed during a riot in Jerusalem in 2014.

 

Kheir Al-Din Hamdan - 22-year-old Israeli Arab man shot to death by Israeli Police on Nov. 8, 2014 in the Arab-Israeli town of Kafr Kanna. Police claim that Hamdan was shot after attempting to stab an officer, but a surveillance recording shows Hamdan hitting the windows of a police car with a knife, and then being shot by a police officer while running away. Hamdan later died of his wounds. The Israeli attorney general has ordered an investigation of the incident, which provoked large-scale rioting in Kafr Kanna.
