Palestinian terrorist Majdi Al-Rimawi, who had been convicted and sentenced to prison for life for his role in the murder of former Israeli Minister of Tourism Rechavam Ze’evi in 2001, has been offered “honorary citizenship” by the French city of Bezons.

Al-Rimawi was a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a terrorist organization. In addition, the municipality of the city prepared a plaque referring to Al-Rimawi as a “political prisoner,” according to Palestinian Media Watch.

“Majdi is a direct victim of this [Israeli] occupation… As are the 4,500 Palestinian resistance [fighters] who were imprisoned for having dared to defend their country against an occupier whose military means are oversized and whose methods constantly violate UN resolutions and international law,” said the mayor of the city of Bezons, Dominique Lesparre, in a speech during the dedication ceremony.
