Fatah held a football tournament for youth named after three terrorists who murdered Rabbi Meir Chai, a 45 year-old father of 7. The terrorists killed the Rabbi in a drive by shooting in 2009. All three terrorists were killed in a shootout with Israeli soldiers two days after the murder.

Palestinian Media Watch has documented the ongoing PA policy of glorifying terrorists as heroes and role models. Earlier this summer, Fatah sponsored a summer camp for youth named after terrorist Dalal Mughrabi, who led a bus hijacking in 1978 that killed 37 civilians.

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas is head of Fatah.

The following is the article in the PA daily:

“In the presence of the family of Martyr Haitham Al-Naana, [and a representative of the security services], Fatah’s Nablus branch sponsored the championship… of the third ‘Martyrs Raed Al-Sarkaji, Anan Subh, Ghassan Abu Sharakh, and Haitham Al-Naana Ramadan Football Championship’ for youth born in 1996…
A closing ceremony was held… that began with a moment of silence and a recitation of [the Koran’s] Surat Al-Fatihah, in memory of the heroic Martyrs.”
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 19, 2012]
