by Zach Pontz
A former adviser to PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas who held the rank of minister and who was subsequently appointed Head of the Palestinian Council for NGO Affairs by Abbas, was recently captured on video honoring the murderer of Evyatar Borovsky, an Israeli stabbed to death last week in the West Bank.
“We salute the heroic fighter, the self-sacrificing Salam Al-Zaghal,”said Sultan Abu Al-Einein.
He also praised the murderer and his killing saying, “He insisted on defending his honor, so he went against the settler and killed him. Blessings to the breast that nursed Salam Al-Zaghal.”
The full text of Sultan Abu Al-Einein’s praise is below (provided by Palestinian Media Watch):
“Praise Allah who honored us and designated us to be in Ribat (religious war defending or liberating “Islamic” land) until Judgment Day, until the dawn of freedom and national independence shine [on us]… On behalf of all those who fell as Martyrs or were wounded, we salute the heroic fighter, the self-sacrificing Salam Al-Zaghal from the Tulkarem District, whose honor and pride would not let him remain silent, consenting to the settlers’ aggression against him in his vehicle. He insisted on defending his honor, so he went against the settler and killed him. Blessings to the breast that nursed Salam Al-Zaghal.”
