On the 11th anniversary of  17-year-old Ayyat Al-Akhras’s suicide bombing that killed 3 and wounded 28 Israelis near a Jerusalem supermarket on March 29, 2002, Fatah, the West Bank’s ruling faction, chose to celebrate her on its Facebook page, referring to her as the “Bride of Palestine.”

According to Palestinian Media Watch part of the accompanying praise read: “Ayyat, we are committed to your promise. We are committed to the promise of freedom, oh Bride of Palestine, Ayyat Al-Akhras.”

Fatah also glorified Ahmed Masharqa, another suicide terrorist. In 2006, he dressed up as a religious Jew and hitchhiked to the town of Kedumim where he blew himself up inside the car that gave him a lift, killing 4 Israelis.

Part of Fatah’s praise read: “The Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades – Fatah’s military wing/ Southern region proudly announce the death of their hero Martyr Ahmed Mahmoud Ahmed Al-Masharqa.”

    Wow he sounds like Jimmy Carter.

  • Abbas is from Fatah which is based on the PLO whose Charter calls for the murder of six million Jews( since 1964 )…Also Abbas like 99.9% of all Muslims reveres the sociopath Muhammad who PERSONALLY decapitated 900 unarmed Jews at Quarayza..
    .Since Muslims already revere one sociopath…it not a shock that they make heroes out of others…

    You can tell a lot about a group of people by who they parade as their role models…

    US Secretary of State John Kerry should be shown this article and also shown MEMRI telecasts of Fatah praising homicide bombers. The Bride of Palestine is like the kiss of death. Her suitor would have to be willing to swallow the blood of innocent Israeli citizens, and her national foundation would be erected on Jewish sacrifices. Does the United States really postulate a viable peace treaty with a death cult like Fatah or Hamas? Such a peace treaty would be instantaneously transmuted into a prescription for the death of more Israeli innocents.
