Philadelphia blog: PMW exposed that
Philadelphia Councilwoman unknowingly
honored a terror supporter


Headline: Oops. Did I just honor a terror supporter?

by Stu Bykofsky

Did you hear the one about the City Councilwoman who’s invited to meet and greet a visiting dignitary, she does, gives her a “citation of honor” — and later learns the dignitary supports and praises terrorists?

The visiting dignitary was Laila Ghannam, the Palestinian District Governor of Ramallah, on the West Bank. The Councilwoman was Maria Quinones-Sanchez, who arrived at a mosque in her district in late January packing a Liberty Bell and the citation (which comes from her office and not from the city).

After the event, first reported by Palestinian Media Watch, Sanchez learned to her surprise and that Ghannam is on record, and video, praising terrorists who had killed Israeli civilians.
