A member of Fatah’s central committee called assassinated terrorist Samir Kuntar a “national hero” this week, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) revealed on Tuesday.

Abbas Zaki, from Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah faction, used this term in a condolence letter he sent to Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah, in the wake of the targeted killing of Kuntar near Damascus Saturday night.

In the letter, Zaki also referred to Kuntar by his informal title,”Dean of the Prisoners,” bestowed upon him by Hezbollah after he served 30 years in an Israeli jail for the murder of a Nahariya family in 1979.

Calling Kuntar a “Palestinian martyr” — in spite of his having been a Lebanese Druze — Zaki described his death as a tragedy both for the Palestinian people and for Lebanon.

In addition, Zaki vowed to continue on Kuntar’s path, until “[all] Arab and Palestinian soil is purged of the Zionist occupation and [its] criminal gangs.”

    Dearest,

    I did not knew kuntar until i read his crime(s), for sure he is sent straight to hell. And verify that no school nor public service funded by the western world is named after him.

    Nasralllah, same thing why is he still around and Abu Mazen.

    To me every Terrorist planning is barbaric and must be targeted, must be strucked regardless they are situated near civilian sites.
    Taking out kuntar is an example of waiting too long to be fought, there was no mercy now, so there had to be no mercy back than in the seventies when he committed the crime.
