Abbas - a world leader in supporting terrorists
 

By Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

As Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas takes the podium at the UN, it is important to remember that this man is a world leader in supporting terrorists.

The latest terrorist Abbas has chosen to honor specifically is Nasser Awais, a Palestinian serving 14 life sentences for murdering 14 people. Abbas decided to raise Awais to the rank of "major general" as "a sign of appreciation for his struggle and sacrifice for the homeland." [Official Fatah Facebook page, Sept. 9, 2018]

Announcing Abbas' decision to promote Awais, the Fatah Movement mentioned among Awais' accomplishments that he "established the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades in a direct appointment by [former PA] President Yasser Arafat." The US, Canada, the EU, and other countries have declared the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades a terror organization. The Brigades is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Israelis in suicide bombings.


Fatah glorified murderer Awais further by stating that "all of the ranks are small for your stature and the stature of the giants of the struggle." Fatah ended with blessing Abbas' decision as "serving the national path."

In addition, besides being the chairman of both the PA and Fatah whose
glorification of terroristsPalestinian Media Watch has documented in depth, Abbas now also heads the Palestine National Fund - the organization that pays salaries to imprisoned terrorists for the PA, and which Israel has declared a terror organization.

The following is a longer excerpt of Fatah's announcement of Abbas' decision to promote the murderer:

Posted text: "[PA] President Mahmoud Abbas will award prisoner commander Nasser Awais (i.e., terrorist, murdered 14), who is sentenced to 14 life sentences, the rank of major general as a sign of appreciation for his struggle and sacrifice for the homeland. It should be noted that prisoner Awais from the Balata refugee camp east of Nablus, together with a group of his friends, established the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades (i.e., Fatah's military wing) in a direct appointment by [former PA] President Yasser Arafat...
Nasser Awais was the first to establish the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades in the homeland and was the secretary-general of the Brigades. The occupation forces expelled him and his name was included on the list of assassination targets until he was arrested in the Tubas district and sentenced to 14 life sentences for being behind many Martyrdom-seeking operations (i.e. terror attacks).
All of the ranks are small for your stature and the stature of the giants of the struggle.
Blessings on this decision that serves the national path."
[Official Fatah Facebook page, Sept. 9, 2018]

Nasser Awais - Palestinian terrorist who planned many attacks, one of the founders of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades (Fatah's military wing), and assistant to arch-terrorist Marwan Barghouti. Awais was convicted of murdering 14 Israelis and wounding dozens in different attacks: 6 murdered in a shooting attack at a Bat Mitzvah celebration in Hadera on Jan. 16, 2002; 3 murdered in a shooting and stabbing attack at the Seafood Market restaurant in Tel Aviv on March 5, 2002; 2 murdered in a shooting attack in Jerusalem on Jan. 22, 2002 ; 2 murdered, 1 a baby, in a hand grenade attack in Netanya on March 9, 2002; one Israeli border policeman murdered when Israeli forces deployed to prevent a planned terror attack in northern Israel on March 31, 2002.
