PMW shows that the PA has given a military funeral to Izz Al-Din Al-Masri, a suicide bomber who detonated himself in a Sbarro pizza shop in Jerusalem in 2001, killing 15 people. Seven of the attack’s victims were children, and five members of one family were killed.

PA TV called Al-Masri a “martyr” and described the terrorist’s funeral as a “wedding” to 72 virgins in paradise. Meanwhile, Hamas’s Al-Aqsa TV stated, “Izz Al-Din Al-Masri ascended to paradise in a martyrdom-seeking operation he carried out in the Sbarro restaurant in Jerusalem, where he gave the Zionists a taste of humiliation after killing 19 Zionists and wounding dozens… The citizens expressed their pride in Izz Al-Din’s heroism, along with the thousands who gathered to accompany him on his final journey, and they did not forget all those who played a role in this operation.”
