Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah faction lauded the actions of the terrorist who murdered two Israelis and wounded at least six on Sunday morning in a shooting spree in Jerusalem, the research institute Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reported.

According to the report, Fatah honored Silwan resident Musbah Abu Sbeih – whom it called a “martyr” for Allah, as he was killed by Israeli security forces after going on his bloody rampage. In two separate postings on its official Facebook page, Fatah praised the killer and declared both a day of mourning and a general strike on his behalf.

The following is one excerpt from Fatah’s Facebook page, provided and translated by PMW:

The one who carried out the operation today in Jerusalem is a pilgrim [to Mecca] Martyr Musbah Abu Sbeih (40), one of the most prominent people in Jerusalem and the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque and a released prisoner.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Pledge ‘Relentless Fight’ Against Israel

Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guards on Thursday threatened a “relentless fight” against Israel, a day after the US urged the international...

He was supposed to turn himself in today and begin a sentence of four months on charges of Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and hitting the occupation’s soldiers.

He was arrested in 2013 in the Bab Huta region of the Old City of Jerusalem on charges of hitting an officer and was released, but to his surprise the case was reopened in 2015 and he was sentenced to a four month active sentence, and according to the ruling of the Israeli Magistrate Court that was given roughly one month ago, the ruling was supposed to be carried out in the middle of this month [October 2016].

The occupation authorities persecuted him over the last two weeks and he was arrested and detained five times in a row, and after his last arrest he was released on condition of being distanced from East Jerusalem for one month, and before that he was given a ruling preventing him from traveling [abroad] until the end of this year, and he was forbidden from entering the Al-Aqsa Mosque for six months, after being released [from arrest] at the end of last year [2015].

Below is another:

The Jerusalem branch of Fatah announced mourning and a general strike today [Oct. 9, 2016] in Jerusalem in memory of the souls of the Martyrs of Palestine and this morning’s Martyr Musbah Abu Sbeih.

Due to the barbaric escalation being perpetrated by the occupation government and the herds of settlers, which includes killing, violence, destruction, and an attempt to instill fear in our Palestinian cities, villages, and refugee camps, and particularly in Jerusalem, we announce our complete objection to crimes of these types being carried out before the international community and its human rights organizations…The occupation government and its executive branches must bear the consequences of what they are perpetrating against the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the disregard of Muslim sensibilities, and the granting of permission to the settlers to invade it, defile it, and desecrate its sanctity on a daily basis under the umbrella and protection of the occupation police…

As The Algemeiner reported, Israel Police Staff Sgt. Major Yosef Kirma, 29, and Lavana Malihi, 60, were the two Israelis slain by Abu Sbeih, who was supposed to arrive at the Ramle Prison on Sunday to begin serving a sentence for assaulting a police officer. Kirma, who was awarded the equivalent of a Purple Heart in December for preventing a stabbing attack against Israeli schoolchildren, died from gunshot wounds sustained in the course of his pursuit after and battle with the terrorist from east Jerusalem.

Fatah regularly uses social media to honor terrorists, while Abbas proclaims he is interested in reaching a peace agreement with Israel. As he attended the funeral of elder Israeli statesman Shimon Peres on Sept. 30, and shook hands with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, his faction posted a cartoon on its Facebook page, depicting a trembling Peres being read a rap sheet of his many “crimes” against humanity by the Grim Reaper, before being sentenced to Hell.

    It was a serious mistake to allow Abbas to attend the funeral for Peres rather than to call him out as the head of a murderous organization, an inviter of terrorism, Holocaust denier and fraud.

    This just reaffirms my opinion, No prisoners!!! Any and all Terrorists either have to be shot on the spot, or jailed for life with hard labour. This Terrorist was in prison got off lightly and look whaT he did.

  • Israel must build at least 100,000 housing units per year in Judea and Samaria for the next 10 years and more. It also needs to build 3 secure superhighway connecting Judea and Samaria to Israel.
    Construct extensive military bases in Judea and Samaria to protect the people and the country.
    Israel also needs to build at least 50,000 housing units per year in greater Jerusalem. Open Atarot airport and a high tech center and more industry, and build many additional roads and secure highways in and from Jerusalem with expanded rail system.
    Israel must also build a minimum of 10,000 housing units in the Galil and 10,000 housing units in the Negev every year for the next ten years and expand the infrastructure, roads and highways. They have to expand industry and commerce to enhance the desire of people to live in the Galil and the Negev.
    Construct military bases and local agencies in Judea and Samaria to protect and help the people and the country.

    P.S. The Arabs have already an Arab Palestinian state which is on Jewish land over three times the size of Israel, east of the Jordan River; it is called Jordan where 80% of the population are Arab Palestinians and the Arabs in Judea and Samaria have a Jordanian passport.
    Oslo accords are null and void. Israel must dismantle the Arab PA and include Judea and Samaria as a continuous part of Israel. Transfer Arab population to Jordan, Gaza and to the homes and the over 120,000 sq. km. the Arab countries confiscated from the Million Jewish families they expelled who now reside in Israel.

    Israel will never do what so called “Palestinians” do. Jews never ever rejoice the loss of a precious life be it a Jew or an Arab. That is the difference between barbarians and civilized people. Abbas is not of this world and is of course part of a race of 6th century killers. “Palestinians” are born to kill others and other ‘Palestinians’ rejoice in the deaths.

    Abbas is nothing but a heartless animal. The killing did not and was not going to achieve anything for the Palestinians, except contempt and a strong animosity. Israelis should not do anything to assist in any way those who condone killing innocents. If the PA and Abbas think that this will give them a state they could not be more wrong. If I could tell them anything I would tell them that I will do everything in my power to see that they are prevented from ever achieving a status of an independent state, of course not that they will created one, but I will make sure that not one Israeli either a gov’t official or a simple citizen will see to it that there will never be an independent state for the kind of people who kill innocent people and think they advance their plans for a state. I would declare to the whole world that Israel will do all it can to see to it that a state for the Palestinians will never be allowed to exist.

    Monstrous. How can the world possibly provide support to Abbas and his henchmen? How can anyone possibly question the legitimate self-defense of Israel and their overwhelming desire for peace? Time and again innocent Israelis are slaughtered by the Palestinian terror machine and the perpetrators are held up as “martyrs.” Horrible.
