Abbas' Fatah celebrates 51 years of murder,
and vows to continue
 
Fatah celebrates: "Half a century of sowing terror  
in the eyes of the sons of Zion"
 
Fatah: "With blood we will redeem the homeland  
and saturate its ground"
 
by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik
 
Abbas' Fatah movement chose to celebrate 51 years of violence and killing to mark the 51st anniversary of its founding. It posted the above image on its Lebanese website, where the number 51 is made up of a knife, a bullet and a rifle. The text says "Revolution until victory."

On Facebook, Fatah's official page cheered the results of its terror attacks - what it calls "sowing terror" among Israelis - and posted a picture of a masked Fatah fighter with the words:
 
"Half a century of sowing terror in the eyes of the sons of Zion"

Another post, this time with a masked Fatah fighter with a rifle, vowed to "redeem the homeland with blood":
 
"We march, we are not afraid of the fire and we do not fear death. With blood we will redeem the homeland and saturate its ground. The anniversary is approaching."

The knife in the logo above is particularly relevant at the current time amid the surge of Palestinian terror attacks, many of which have been stabbings. Since October, 10 Israelis have been killed and 72 wounded in stabbing attacks. In total, 25 Israelis have been murdered and 259 have been injured during the current terror wave. 
 
Throughout the surge in violence, Fatah has emphasized its support for violence against Israelis in general and for stabbings in particular.
 
Other posters and images glorifying the rifle and violence have been posted recently by Fatah on Facebook, Twitter, and on Fatah's official websites. The following are a few examples:
 
One image, tweeted from Fatah's Twitter account, shows a rifle.
  
Text above image:
"Fatah movement
The first announcement 1965 (i.e., first Fatah terror attack) 
Long live the outbreak of the Palestinian revolution"

Another picture shows a Fatah fighter with a gun. The "1" in "51" is in the shape of a map of "Palestine" and includes the PA areas as well as all of Israel.

Intilaqa - "The launch" of Fatah on Jan. 1, 1965, when it carried out its first terror attack against Israel, attempting to bomb Israel's National Water Carrier.
