Palestinian Chairman Honors Arch-Terrorist


177145-01-02.jpg.crop_displayPalestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has granted a post-mortem honor to arch-terrorist Abu Jihad, who was responsible for the murder of at least 125 Israelis in numerous terror attacks that he planned, including a bus hijacking in 1978, in which 37 civilians were murdered.

Official PA TV News reported that Abbas, in order “to honor the founding leaders and the first generation of the Palestinian revolution and the PLO, and out of loyalty to their history of struggle,” chose to decorate Abu Jihad with “the highest order of the Star of Honor.”

At the ceremony, Abbas handed the award to Abu Jihad’s wife. Secretary-General of the Presidential Office Tayeb Abd Al-Rahim read aloud the “decree” signed by Abbas, calling terrorist Abu Jihad “the model of a true fighter and devoted leader,” and praising him for “his honorable national role”:

“Abu Jihad shall be granted the highest order of the Star of Honor in recognition of his honorable national role and his history of struggle as one of the founding leaders of the Palestinian revolution, and out of great appreciation for his high position and significance in the defense of Palestine as a country, a nation, and a cause. He was the model of a true fighter and devoted leader [and] through his commitment and contribution he left his mark on the history of the Palestinian revolution and the PLO.”

Palestinian Media Watch reported in July 2013 that Abbas decorated another terrorist leader with the Star of Honor. The recipient was Nayef Hawatmeh, the leader of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP). The DFLP carried out many deadly terror attacks in the 1970s and has also participated in and claimed responsibility for dozens of other terror attacks, including a suicide bombing near Tel Aviv that killed 4 people in 2003.

Former PA PM Salam Fayyad was also among this year’s recipients of the Star of Honor.

The glorification of arch-terrorist Abu Jihad is a long-standing PA and Fatah policy. Every year in April, the anniversary of Abu Jihad’s death is marked with numerous events and ceremonies held in his honor.

This year, PMW reported that the official PA news agency WAFA lauded Abu Jihad as a killer of 125, listing all the terror attacks he planned and directed, specifying the number of murdered:

“Abu Jihad was killed by the Israeli Mossad in Tunisia on April 16, 1988… and was crowned the Prince of the Martyrs of Palestine… Among the military operations planned by Abu Jihad: the explosion at the Zohar reservoir in 1955; the operation to blow up the Israeli National Water Carrier in 1965; the operation at the Savoy Hotel in Tel Aviv, which killed 10 Israelis, in 1975; the blowing up of a truck bomb in Jerusalem in 1975; the killing of Albert Levi, the senior sapper, and his assistant, in Nablus in 1976; the Dalal Mughrabi operation (i.e., bus hijacking), in which more than 37 Israelis were killed, in 1978; the shelling of the Eilat Port in 1979; the Katyusha fire on the northern settlements [in Israel] in 1981…”

[WAFA and Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, April 16, 2013]

At a Fatah event in January this year, Abbas praised Abu Jihad and other terrorists who killed hundreds as “the blessed Martyrs” and “the leaders of all the fighting forces”:

“We renew the promise to our blessed Martyrs, that we will follow the path of the Martyr Brother Yasser Arafat and his comrades among the leaders of all the fighting forces, all the Martyrs. Among them, I mention Martyr Abu Jihad…”

Private organizations also follow the lead of the PA and glorify terrorist Abu Jihad, such as sports organizations that name their activities and tournaments after him. This year the Palestinian Association for Martial Arts held “its first Prince of Martyrs [Abu Jihad] festival” and the Palestinian Boxing Association held “The Martyr Abu Jihad Tournament.”

The following is the report on official PA TV News on Abbas’ decoration of terrorist Abu Jihad with the Star of Honor:

PA TV newsreader: “As part of President [Abbas]‘ desire to honor the founding leaders and the first generation of the Palestinian revolution and the PLO, and out of loyalty to their history of struggle, the President – with a number of Fatah Central Committee members – awarded the highest order of the Star of Honor to the Martyr leader Khalil Al-Wazir, Abu Jihad…The award was accepted by [his wife] Mrs. Um Jihad and family.”

Secretary-General of the Presidential Office Tayeb Abd Al-Rahim: “As President of Palestine and Chairman of the PLO Executive Committee, by the authority vested in us, and for the public good, we have decreed the following: Paragraph One: Martyr leader Khalil Al-Wazir Abu Jihad shall be granted the highest order of the Star of Honor in recognition of his honorable national role and his history of struggle as one of the founding leaders of the Palestinian revolution, and out of great appreciation for his high position and significance in the defense of Palestine as a country, a nation, and a cause. He was the model of a true fighter and devoted leader [and] through his commitment and contribution he left his mark on the history of the Palestinian revolution and the PLO… [Signed by] Mahmoud Abbas, President of the State of Palestine and [Fatah] Executive Committee Chairman.”

Note: Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir) was a founder of Fatah and deputy to Yasser Arafat. He headed the PLO terror organization’s military wing and planned many deadly Fatah terror attacks killing 125 Israelis. This included the most lethal in Israeli history, the hijacking of a bus and killing of 37 civilians, 12 of them children.

    Arch terrorist? Israel was born out of terrorism and has terrorized the natives into submission for 66 years now. Terrorist and future Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin leader of the attack on Deir Yassin bragged that Zionists had brought terrorism both to the Middle East and to the world at large. That is how “Israel” was borne. A true terrorist entity.

        NO PALESTINIAN PEOPLE

        December 14, 2011,by

        Syrian Ba’ath party member, and PLO member
        Zuheir Mohsen in the Dutch newspaper “Trouw” on 31 March 1977.:

        “The
        Palestinian people does not exist”. The creation of a
        Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state
        of Israel
        for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians,
        Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical
        reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since
        Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct
        “Palestinian people” to oppose Zionism.

        For tactical
        reasons, Jordan, which is a
        sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa
        and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can
        undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa,
        Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem.
        However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine,
        we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine
        and Jordan

        There is no
        “historical” Palestine – it’s Israel. The Romans wanted to punish
        the Jews after their defeat at Masada in the
        first century. The Roman emperor Hadrian meant to erase the name of Israel and Judah, so that there would be no
        memory of the country that belonged to that Jewish people. He wanted a name
        that would humiliate the Jews, and found that in an extinct people called the
        “Philistines,” the enemies of the Israelites.

      The fact is that the
      Palestinian’s are a ‘RECENT INVENTION, as attested to by Fahti Hammad of Hamas,
      who has many Video’s on the subject.

      —————————-

      Another of his Video’s brags about Hamas using their own people for
      Human Shields

      If you should want to dispute what Fathi Hammad has said, please take
      it up with him, since he said it

      Hamas trains future terrorists
      in Kindergarten, several Videos are also on Youtube, showing their Gradation Classes as
      Terrorist’s of the future

      The basics:

      There is no Palestinian culture, language, nor cuisine. There has never been a
      land called “Palestine”
      ruled by “Palestinians.”

      (FYI, Philistines were Greek and they ate
      pork. Delilah and Goliath were Philistines. Philistines died out.)

      There has never been a
      Palestinian president or Prime Minister or government or military.

      This whole notion of
      there being a Palestine is a recent and false
      invention, based on lies and violence, with NO intention for peaceful
      co-existence with Israel,
      or any other nation who won’t kowtow to them.

      Since the 1880′s, it was the Jewish pioneers
      who began to redeem the land, Israel,
      from wilderness.

      Only thereafter, did the Arabs come from other
      lands to benefit from what the Jews built and try to take it away from them. If
      anyone really wants peace with Israel,
      they MUST recognize Israel’s
      existence, and Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, which
      it is. The fact that foreign governments, NCLUDING THE U.S., do not do so, ensures continued war by the
      Arabs and the destruction of Israel.

        Actually, the name “Palestine” goes back to the Roman Emperor Hadrian who renamed Judea “Palestina” in 135 A.D., after defeating the Bar Kochba rebellion. He wanted to eradicate all memory of Judea and outlawed Judaism, as well as renaming Jerusalem “Aelia Capitolina,” his gens name being “Aelius.”
        From that time on, “Palestine” was synonymous with “land of the Jews,” and “Palestinian” with “Jew.” That is why Great Britain after World War I was given the “Palestine Mandate” to be “the homeland of the Jews.”
        Calling Jew-hating Arabs “Palestinians” is the consequence of Soviet propaganda. In 1964, in Cairo, Gamal Nasser, ruler of Egypt, and the Soviet Union, founded the “Palestine Liberation Organization” (P.L.O.). This came to fame by the massacre of the Israeli athletes at the Olympic Games in Munich in 1972, since which time the name “Palestinian” has meant anti-Jewish Arabs.

      Begin “bragged that Zionists had brought terrorism both to the Middle East and to the world at large.” Really? What did Begin say, exactly? You know very well that Begin never said that. And I recall that Larry Collins, in “O! Jerusalem,” said that Begin attacked Deir Yassin because there were two companies(400 troops) of Iraqi infantry in that village, blocking the road to Jerusalem. Yes, there was a battle at Deir Yassin; between Begin’s Irgun, numbering 130, and 400 Iraqi infantry.

    No one should ever be surprised at how the Muslims revere their cohorts who have participated in mass murder since they begin the indoctrination of children when they are in preschool. Insane and unworldly hate is ingrained into them in those formative years that is acted out as they get older. If Jewish or Christian organizations promoted such “Vacation We-Hate-Muslims Schools,” international child advocacy agencies would be up in arms. Sadly, though not surprisingly considering the hypocrisy of the global community, that is not the case when it comes to “Vacation Jihadi School.”

    Again, don’t have the time to read but just from glancing at the headlines, there is no such thing as a so-called “moderate Palestinian”, or a so-called “moderate Muslim,” as those things are like the so-called “religion of peace”, or so-called moderate Islam, that is myths created by the PC multicultural left to minimize and reduce the threat to the collective perception of the infidel world that is emanating from the Islamic world.

    Not to mention that Muslims are not terrorists perpetrating terrorism for various political causes, as that is more PC multiculturalism designed to minimize and reduce the threat that is emanating from Islam. Instead, all mainstream orthodox Muslims are jihadists in one form or another waging jihad (holy war) against all religions and all infidels in order to eventually subjugate them into Islamic totalitarianism through both violent and non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad and the eventual imposition of Sharia (Islamic totalitarian law) to ultimately make Islam supreme.

    However, the PC multicultural left deliberately minimizes and reduces the problem down to only a few stray Muslim extremists here and there perpetrating terrorism, while at the same time claiming that Islam is a so-called religion of peace and that the vast overwhelming majority of Muslims are peaceful and moderate, in direct contradiction to the reality of Islam. Nonetheless, the reality is jihad, which is a holy war relative to terrorism, is far more substantial and profound a problem in comparison to just a few stray Muslim extremists here and there perpetrating terrorism, especially since every Muslim in the world is a jihadists in one form or another, as waging jihad is a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon all Muslims in one form or another.

    As a matter of fact, mass Muslim immigration to the infidel world, which is really stealth and deceptive non-violent jihad for the strategic purpose of demographic conquest, has been occurring throughout the infidel for decades now thanks to PC multiculturalism. Thus, the PC multicultural left can never acknowledge the truth about Islam because that mass Muslim immigration to the West along with all of its excess baggage would then have to necessarily be outlawed, banned, and reversed. It would also simultaneously destroy the credibility of the PC multicultural left at the same time.

    The head of the DFLP planned and sent the three terrorists who murdered an Israeli family[father,pregnant mother and 3 year old]2 Arab Israeli women,then took almost 100 children hostage in their school in Maalot,and then when their demands were not met on time shot 25 of them and injured another 50,after the massacre he honored the three terrorists he sent in a heroes ceremony in Beirut.
