JNS.orgPalestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas recently honored terrorist Khalil Al-Wazir (known as “Abu Jihad,” meaning “father of struggle”), who planned attacks that killed at least 125 Israelis, Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reported Dec. 11.

“Martyr leader Khalil Al-Wazir Abu Jihad shall be granted the highest order of the Star of Honor in recognition of his honorable national role and his history of struggle as one of the founding leaders of the Palestinian revolution, and out of great appreciation for his high position and significance in the defense of Palestine as a country, a nation, and a cause,” Secretary-General of the PA’s Presidential Office Tayeb Abd Al-Rahim said on a Nov. 27PA TV broadcast, reading from a statement signed by Abbas.

“There is no worse incitement to murder than to say that a terrorist who has murdered is a hero,” Itamar Marcus, director ofPMW, told in November.
