So as not to leave any Palestinian in doubt, the Palestinian Authority is using all the means of communication at its disposal to stress that murderers of Israelis are “heroes,” “giants,” and “legends.” While PA and Fatah officials emphasize this in speeches and statements, official PA TV drives home the point in fillers and programs for and about terrorist prisoners.
Thus, a new filler on PA TV glorifies murderers and other terrorists as “Martyrs” and “heroes” who “create “our glory, our honor, and life.”
Some of these terrorist murderers carried out some of the most atrocious attacks against Israelis in recent years. Ghassan and Uday Abu Jamal carried out the attack at the Har Nof synagogue in Jerusalem on Nov. 18, 2014. They attacked worshippers with guns, knives and axes, murdering Israelis. Muhannad Halabi attacked a young family with a knife in the Old City of Jerusalem on Oct. 3, 2015, murdering 2, and injuring a mother and her 2-year-old son. Baha Alyan boarded a bus with an accomplice in Jerusalem and attacked passengers with a gun and a knife, murdering 3.
