PA Minister of Education honors terrorist 
who murdered 19-year-old policewoman

Itamar Marcus

The Palestinian Authority Minister of Education visited a school this week in order to “honor the souls” of three terrorist “Martyrs” who had attended the school. Among the “Martyrs” was the murderer Ahmad Najah Abu Al-Rub, who killed 19-year-old Hadar Cohen, an Israeli policewoman, earlier this year.

The article in the official PA daily points out that the students in the school named their class after two of the terrorists.

The Minister of Education, Sabri Saidam, added that:

“After the announcement of the results of the high school matriculation exams, a tribute to the Martyrs' families will be held at this school as a sign of loyalty to them and to their sacrifice.”

Palestinian Media Watch has documented that a central teaching of the Palestinian Authority Ministry of Education is terror glorification.

The following is a longer excerpt from the article describing the PA Minister of Education's visit:

“[PA] Minister of Education and Higher Education, Sabri Saidam visited… the exam halls of the Martyr (Shahid) Izzat Abu Al-Rub High School. The visit was held in honor of the souls of three of its students who died this year as Martyrs and in light of the fact that the occupation's bullets prevented them from taking their exams now as their friends are doing. Saidam again emphasized the loyalty to the path of the Martyrs and the deceased, to their sacrifice and their last wills… It should be noted that students at the school included Martyr Ahmad Awwad Abu Al-Rub - who died as a Martyr on Nov. 2 (sic., Nov. 11 – Ed.), 2015, at the Jalame checkpoint in Jenin, while accompanied by his friend Mahmoud Ma’man Abu Kmeil, who was also a high school student [and] who was wounded and arrested afterwards, and Martyr Ahmad Najah Abu Al-Rub - who died as a Martyr last Feb. 3 [2016] in Jerusalem with his friends Ahmad Zakarneh and Muhammad Kmeil, who died as Martyrs together with him (i.e., after murdering an Israeli policewoman).
The students taking the high school matriculation exams in the school’s different courses of study, who number 175, gave themselves the name: ’Class of Martyrs Kmeil and Abu Al-Rub.’ Minister Saidam said: ‘After the announcement of the results of the high school matriculation exams, a tribute to the Martyrs' families will be held at this school as a sign of loyalty to them and to their sacrifice.’”

Izzat Abu Al-Rub was a Fatah military leader who participated in a number of terror ‎attacks against Israel. ‎

Ahmad Awwad Abu Al-Rub - a Palestinian terrorist who, with an accomplice, attempted to stab Israeli soldiers at a checkpoint near Jenin on Nov. 11, 2015. Abu Al-Rubb was shot and killed by soldiers during the attack.

Ahmad Najah Abu Al-Rub, Ahmad Zakarneh and Muhammad Kmeil - three Palestinian terrorists in their early 20's who shot and stabbed two Israeli police officers at the Damascus gate in Jerusalem on Feb. 3, 2016. One of the officers, 19-year-old Hadar Cohen, was fatally wounded and died of her wounds. The second officer was seriously wounded. The terrorists, who attacked the policewomen after they were asked for identification, were carrying machine guns, knives, and pipe bombs, leading the police to suspect they were planning a mass attack against civilians. The terrorists were shot and killed at the scene by Israeli police.
