PA about Arabs who murdered Jews in 1929: “An example of defiance, self-sacrifice, heroism and daring”

Official PA TV newsreader: “Today [June 17, 2020] is the 90th anniversary of the execution of the three fighters Muhammad Jamjoum, Ataa Al-Zir, and Fuad Hijazi (i.e., murderers) at the hands of the British colonialists in 1930, after the events of the Al-Buraq Revolution (i.e., the 1929 Arab riots).”

Song lyrics: "There were three men who competed among themselves over death. Their feet rose above the neck of the hangman, and they became role models."

Official PA TV reporter: "Muhammad Jamjoum, Ataa Al-Zir, and Fuad Al-Hijazi – 90 years have passed since their ascent [to Heaven] as Martyrs, but their sun is not setting for even one day… The heroes of Red Tuesday wrote an eternal epic of heroism. They shaped the love of the homeland with [their] bodies, blood, and soul. They defied the prison guards and competed among themselves over the noose, rejoicing over Martyrdom-death. The heroes competed which of them would be executed first, and they were a symbol and example of defiance and self-sacrifice, of heroism and daring."

Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir “committed particularly brutal murders [of Jews] at Safed and Hebron,” according to the report by British Government to the League of Nations. They were convicted of attacking British soldiers and murdering Jews in the 1929 Hebron Massacre, in which 65 Jews were murdered. They were executed by the British in 1930.
