Nan Jacques Zilberdik  |
  • Murder of Israeli teen was “heroic operation”
  • “National duty” of students to participate in visit to murderer’s family

A student faction at a PA university arranged a visit to honor the family of imprisoned terrorist Muntasir Shalabi who shot and murdered 19-year-old Israeli student Yehuda Gueta and wounded two other young students – Benaya Peretz and Amichai Hala – in a drive-by shooting attack near Ariel on May 2, 2021.

On the registration form provided via a link to a Google Docs document, the Islamic Faction at Birzeit University urged students to fulfill their “national duty” and participate in the visit to the family of “the heroic prisoner who carried out the heroic operation” – i.e., the murder of one Israeli and wounding of two:

That Palestinian students arrange a visit to the family of a murderer – a “heroic prisoner” in their terminology - is not surprising because as Palestinian Media Watch has exposed, the PA has taught Palestinians – including children - for decades that murderers of Israelis are admirable “heroes” and role models. The students of the Islamic Faction at Birzeit University are merely doing as they have been taught since childhood by the PA.

PMW has documented that military processions take place at Birzeit University - “the university of the Martyrs” - where masked students wearing military uniforms march, holding posters of terrorists
