Abbas’ Fatah wished “the real Palestinians” a “good year” in a post on Facebook, parading some of the movement’s role models, among them several “Martyrs,” all of whom were either murderers or heads of murderous terror organizations.

The largest picture among the role models on Fatah’s image above is terrorist murderer Dalal Mughrabi who led the killing of 37 Israelis in a bus hijacking in 1978. Additional pictures (left to right) are PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, terrorist Omar Al-Qassem, Yasser Arafat, Islamic Jihad founder Fathi Shaqaqi, Hamas founder Ahmed Yassin, and Secretary-General of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) Abu Ali Mustafa.

Fatah described what it means to be “a real Palestinian,” and predicted that “a people whose leaders are Martyrs” - as the leaders singled out in the photos, except Abbas - “will undoubtedly triumph with Allah’s help”:

Text on image: “Fatah embraces its people and praises the Martyrs.
To be a real Palestinian, you must be a self-sacrificing fighter (Fida’i), know much and reveal little, search for the security in the heart of the danger, get used to having no time to cry over endings but rather to always have new beginnings.
Long life to you and long live the anniversary of the Launch [of Fatah] (Intilaqa), and may it be a good year.
A people whose leaders are Martyrs will undoubtedly triumph with Allah’s help...”
[Official Fatah Facebook page, Dec. 27, 2016]

In another post, Fatah presented the same terror leaders as “heroic Martyrs” and “swore” it will “continue our revolution until victory:”

The celebration posts of Fatah’s 52nd anniversary concentrate on Fatah’s “leaders” - and leading terrorists. Palestinian Media Watch has also documented Fatah’s glorification of specific terror attacks.

As is its policy, Fatah glorified terrorist Dalal Mughrabi in another post as the “Bride of Palestine.” [Official Fatah Facebook page, Dec. 27, 2016]

Adding to the message that Fatah is proud of its killers and adheres to the option of “armed struggle” and violence, Fatah posted a photo of the Chairman of the Information Committee of the Fatah Mobilization and Organization Commission Munir Al-Jaghoub holding a drawing of a handshake forming a gun with a Palestinian flag. The gun points at a flag with a Star of David on it with the text: "The Israeli occupation." Text on the gun says "The Palestinian reconciliation" - referring to a desired resolution of the existing rift between Fatah and Hamas. [Official Fatah Facebook page, Dec. 28, 2016]  

The posted statement by this Fatah official urges Fatah to meet with Hamas "on the basis of the partnership that unites all of us.” According to the drawing, this unifying basis is violence against Israel.
In addition to these posts, Fatah has celebrated the 52nd anniversary of its “Launch” by glorifying numerous of “Martyrs,” among them many terrorist murderers: Arch-terrorist Abu Jihad who orchestrated attacks in which at least 125 Israelis were murdered; Marwan Barghouti, who is serving 5 life sentences for planning attacks that killed 5; Karim Younes, who kidnapped and killed an Israeli soldier; Raed Al-Karmi, who was responsible for attacks that killed 9 Israelis; Abu Ali Iyad, who was responsible for several terror attacks in 1966; Kamal Adwan, who was responsible for Fatah’s terrorist operations in Israel in the 1960’s and 1970’s and was a senior member of Black September. (Longer descriptions of these terrorists appear below.)

On all the images appears the logo of the 52nd anniversary of “the Launch” (Intilaqa) of Fatah, which features the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel as “Palestine” together with the PA areas, a keffiyeh (Arab headdress), and the Fatah logo with a grenade, crossed rifles, and the PA map of “Palestine.” The logo is the profile picture and appears on the cover photo of Fatah's official Facebook page.

The following are longer descriptions of the terrorists glorified by Fatah:

Abu Ali Iyad was appointed head of Fatah military operations in 1966 and was responsible for several terror attacks.

The picture shows Chairman of the Information Committee of the Fatah Mobilization and Organization Commission Munir Al-Jaghoub holding a drawing.

The gun is pointed at a flag with a Star of David on it with the text: "The Israeli occupation."

Posted text: "The national responsibility and the supreme interests of our people require us in the Fatah Movement to meet with the Hamas movement on the basis of the partnership that unites all of us. Their participation in a preparatory meeting of the [Palestinian] National Council (i.e., the legislative body of the PLO) constitutes a first and important step on the path to ending the rift [between Fatah and Hamas] and returning the unity and cohesion to the homeland.
Munir Al-Jaghoub
Chairman of the Information Committee of the Fatah Mobilization and Organization Commission"
