Fatah wants more murderers:
 
Murderer of 10 is "heroic prisoner"
"We miss you...
our people needs men like you"
  • In letter from prison, murderer called for "resistance" - A Palestinian euphemism for violence and terror
By Nan Jacques Zilberdik

A branch of Abbas' Fatah Movement has announced that the Palestinian people needs murderers. In a post on Facebook glorifying murderer Thaer Hammad who killed 10 Israelis in 2002, Fatah in Bethlehem stated that the people "needs men like you":

"Heroic prisoner Thaer Hammad, we miss you. Allah willing you will soon be among us, our people needs men like you."

Palestinian Media Watch exposed a video by Fatah, which visually presented murderer Hammad as a successful agent on a military mission. The video glorified the murder of the 10 Israelis as "one of the most famous operations."

Thaer Hammad is serving 11 life sentences for murdering 3 Israeli civilians and 7 soldiers by shooting them with a sniper rifle from a hilltop in Wadi Al-Haramiya between Ramallah and Nablus on March 3, 2002.

In a letter he sent from prison, murderer Hammad called for a return of the "resistance" - a Palestinian euphemism for violence and terror attacks against Israelis:

"Hammad demanded to resume and revive the spirit of the revolutionary movement, from which the Fatah Movement arose, and the idea of resistance, given that it is the ideal way to protect our cause and our existence in the shadow of the great challenges and dangers that surround us."

In another Fatah post, terrorist Hammad was praised as a "prince" and "the sniper from Wadi Al-Haramiya":

Posted text: "On this date, prince of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades (i.e., Fatah's military wing) Thaer Kayed Hammad (i.e., terrorist, murdered 10) - who was born on July 25, 1980 - carried out the Wadi Al-Haramiya operation (i.e., terror attack). He fired 25 bullets.
The result: 11 soldiers and settlers [were killed], and nine others were wounded (sic., 7 soldiers and 3 civilians were murdered, and 6 were wounded).
The date it was carried out: March 3, 2002.
The operation did not continue because the rifle exploded.
He was arrested and sentenced to 11 life sentences."

The following are longer excerpts of the Facebook posts glorifying the murderer and the official PA daily's report on the murderer's letter:

Posted text: "Today is the 16th anniversary of the arrest of the heroic prisoner, Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades (i.e., Fatah's military wing) member Thaer Hammad (i.e., terrorist, murdered 10), in 2002 (sic., March 3, 2018, the day after the Facebook post, was the 16th anniversary of Hammad's attack in 2002; his arrest was in October 2004). He carried out the Wadi Al-Haramiya operation (i.e., terror attack), in which 11 Israeli soldiers and 1 Israeli settler were killed, and nine others were wounded (sic., 3 civilians and 7 soldiers were murdered, and 6 were wounded). There are those who call him 'the Wadi Al-Haramiya sniper,' as he was called by leader Marwan Barghouti (i.e., terrorist who orchestrated three shooting attacks in which 5 were murdered).
Heroic prisoner Thaer Hammad, we miss you. Allah willing you will soon be among us, our people needs men like you."

Headline: "In a letter he sent from his cell in Nafha [Prison] - Prisoner Thaer Hammad: Bringing back the idea of resistance is the ideal way to protect our existence"
"Prisoner Thaer Hammad (i.e., terrorist, murdered 10) said in a letter that he sent from his cell in Nafha Prison: 'Bringing back the idea of resistance and unity, ending the [Fatah-Hamas] rift, and implementing the reconciliation agreement [between them] are the source of power and the protection for the Palestinian cause. They are the proper response to all the plans and plots the occupation is devising, and to the hostile American trends that are being expressed in [US President Donald] Trump's policy, whose goal is to harm the Palestinian existence.'
Hammad demanded to resume and revive the spirit of the revolutionary movement, from which the Fatah Movement arose, and the idea of resistance, given that it is the ideal way to protect our cause and our existence in the shadow of the great challenges and dangers that surround us...
Hammad's letter comes 16 years after the heroic operation (i.e., terror attack) that he carried out in 2002, which is known as the Wadi Al-Haramiya operation. In mentioning it, Hammad noted that his motive for carrying out the operation was his belief in the national obligation and his attempt to inculcate the continuation of the way of resistance on which the Palestinian people has gone throughout the years of its rebellion against the occupation...
Hammad added: 'The prisoners' movement is still dealing with a brutal attack that is being led by the Israeli political echelon and its security, military, and legal systems.
The sole response can only be to bring back the resistance as the one and only way to release the prisoners.'"

Thaer Hammad - serving 11 life sentences for murdering 10 Israelis, 3 civilians and 7 soldiers, by shooting them with a sniper rifle from a hilltop in Wadi Al-Haramiya in the West Bank on March 3, 2002.

Marwan Barghouti - Palestinian terrorist who is serving 5 life sentences for orchestrating three shooting attacks that murdered 5 people: one attack in Jerusalem (June 12, 2001) in which Greek monk Tsibouktsakis Germanus was murdered by terrorist Ismail Radaida and another unidentified terrorist, another attack at a gas station in Givat Zeev near Jerusalem (Jan. 15, 2002) in which Yoela Hen, 45, was murdered by terrorists led by Mohammed Matla, and one shooting and stabbing attack at the Seafood Market restaurant in Tel Aviv (March 5, 2002) in which Eli Dahan, 53, Yosef Habi, 52, and Police Officer Sergeant-Major Salim Barakat, 33, were murdered by terrorist Ibrahim Hasouna. When arrested by Israel in 2002, Barghouti headed the Tanzim (Fatah terror faction). After he was convicted and imprisoned, he was re-elected member of the Palestinian Authority parliament. On Dec. 4, 2016, he was elected to Fatah's Central Committee.
