PA TV honors first female suicide terrorist
by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik
Jan. 5, 2010
Wafa Idris, the first Palestinian female suicide terrorist, was honored as a
- holy Martyr - in a new Fatah promotional music video broadcast this week on Palestinian Authority TV. Idris killed one Israeli and wounded over 100 in her suicide bombing in 2002.
Picture of Wafa Idris in PA TV - Fatah music video with text:
"the Shahida (Martyr) Wafa Idris"
This picture of Wafa Idris with the text "The
(Martyr) Wafa Ali Idris" appears in the new PA TV music video, which blends scenes and pictures paying tribute to the PLO, Fatah, Yasser Arafat and PA and Fatah Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. PA TV is under the control of Abbas's bureau.
In addition to this terror glorification, Abbas spoke at a PA event marking the 45th anniversary of the Fatah Movement, and honored as
(Martyrs) the six most recent terrorists killed by Israel. By giving them this title of honor, Abbas is once again legitimizing and glorifying their acts of terror.
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas:
(Martyrs) are the six who were killed in cold blood by Israeli forces in Nablus [terrorists who killed Rabbi Avshalom Meir Hai] and in Gaza [terrorists carrying explosives and a ladder near Israel's border fence]."
[PA TV (Fatah), Dec. 31, 2009]
These are the latest two examples of the PA's policy of honoring terrorists.
