The ruling Fatah movement in the Palestinian Authority rushed on Tuesday to praise Nimer Mahmoud Ahmed Jamal — the terrorist who murdered three Israelis in the West Bank community of Har Adar, near Jerusalem.

On its official Facebook page, Fatah honored the killer by posting his picture alongside the text, “The one who carried out the operation in Jerusalem (sic — Har Adar) is Martyr (Shahid) Nimr Mahmoud Ahmed Al-Jamal,” Israeli monitoring organization Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reported.

Former Israeli Interior Minister Gideon Sa’ar drew attention to the financial compensation Jamal’s family can now expect to receive from the PA, declaring that there “is no greater encouragement of terror than the Palestinian Authority’s generous policy of allowances for the terrorists and their families.”

According to PMW, Jamal’s family will receive annual compensation for life of approximately $9,000, based on the PA’s sliding scale that adds extra funds for each wife and child of a dead or convicted terrorist. Jamal is reported to have had one wife and four children.

Netanyahu, Trump Discuss Syria, Iran Ahead of Helsinki Summit

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that he discussed Syria and Iran with US President Donald Trump ahead of the...

Fatah — the faction headed by PA President Mahmoud Abbas — added that Israel bore responsibility for the murders of border policeman Solomon Gavriyah, 20, and civilian security guards Youssef Ottman, 25, from Abu Ghosh, and Or Arish, 25, a resident of Har Adar.

“Israel alone bears responsibility for the Palestinian responses to the occupation’s crimes against the members of our people,” the movement stated.

Fatah activist Munir al-Jaghoub offered a further threat. “If it [Israel] continues its incessant aggression against the Palestinian people, it can only expect more violence,” he said. Many Israeli security analysts fear that the ongoing reconciliation process between Fatah and its Islamist rival, Hamas, will result in greater competition between the two as to who can more effectively prosecute Palestinian “resistance” to Israel’s presence in the West Bank and Jerusalem.

The Har Adar attack comes as the US Congress prepares to vote on the Taylor Force Act — named for the former American serviceman murdered in a Palestinian attack in Jaffa in 2016 — that would make US aid to the PA conditional on a complete, verifiable end to its “martyr payments” policy.

    how any sane person could possibly believe Mahmoud Abbas wants peace with Israel is either a fool or a liar.

  • David Hersch

    Time to put Abbas and his accomplices on the international wanted list. For those in the country like Abbas, go to Ramallah and arrest the bastards and put them on trial. Guilt is obvious and lock them away for the rest of their useless lives.

    Oh, I want to also emphasize the outlandish lies of Fatah. which charged that Israel commits incessant aggression against the un-Palestinians. Obviously that incessant aggression consists of hiring the Arabs the Arabs won’t hire, treating the Arabs in Israeli clinics and hospitals, giving them tax monies, providing water and electricity, and so on, while Israeli Arabs don’t even serve in the IDF. They take and never give back. This is the incessant aggression committed by Israel. We also need to consider that Arab Muslims have over 20 other countries in which they can live, so if there is such aggression against them, they can leave Israel.

    I understand from another media source that this terrorist cleaned the house of one of the residents of Har Adar. This brings out another solution to the Arab problem. If Israel would forbid Jews from hiring these unpredictable Arabs, maybe they’d leave Israel. Many are here mostly because this is the only place where they can get decent jobs. And many Jews hire Arabs solely because it’s cheaper. We are idiots who do bring on some of our own problems. I also knew a terrorist, though he was a deli counter clerk until the day he took an ax and bludgeoned a security guard. He was always friendly and smiling, but he committed this terror act, he said, because of the incitement from PA leaders. We cannot trust them, even if it is only a small percentage of Arabs living in Israel; any one of them can succumb to the incitement and lies they are brainwashed with and become a terrorist. The article above is filled with heinous lies which the world all too easily believes, and which goad the brainwashed Arabs to murder. We need to send them all out- pay them to leave and take away their jobs. We have the moral high ground, as it is wrong to hire Arabs when there are Jews who can do the work. And Jews have to get off their high horses and be willing to take the jobs in construction etc.

    No Arab-Palestinian state west of the Jordan River
    If you read the 1917 Balfour Declaration (Which emulated Napoleons 1799 letter to the Jewish community in Palestine promising that The National Home for The Jewish people will be reestablished in Palestine, as the Jews are the rightful owners). Nowhere does it state an Arab entity west of The Jordan River. The San Remo Conference of 1920 does not state an Arab entity west of The Jordan River, confirmed by Article 95 in the 1920 Treaty of Sevres. The Mandate for Palestine terms does not state an Arab entity west of the Jordan River. It specifically states a Jewish National Home in Palestine without limiting the Jewish territory in Palestine. It also states that the British should work with the Jewish Agency as the official representative of the Jews in Palestine to implement the National Home of the Jewish people in Palestine. I stress again; nowhere does it state that an Arab entity should be implemented west of the Jordan River.
    As a matter of historical record, The British reallocated over 77% of Jewish Palestine to the Arab-Palestinians in 1922 with specific borders and Jordan took over additional territory like the Gulf of Aqaba which was not part of the allocation to Jordan.

    No where in any of the above stated agreements does it provides for an Arab entity west of the Jordan River. The U.N. resolutions are non-binding with no legal standing, same applies to the ICJ. The Oslo Accords are null and void.

    It is time to relocate the Arabs in Israel to Jordan and to the homes and the 120,000 sq. km. the Arab countries confiscated from the over a million Jewish families that they terrorized and expelled and those expelled Jews were resettled in Israel. They can use the trillions of dollars in reparations for the Jewish assets to finance the relocation of the Arabs and help set-up an economy and industry instead of living on the world charity.

    I have thought for a long time that members of the Palestinian
    Authority, including Abbas, should be arrested, convicted and jailed
    when an act of terrorism is committed as accessories to the crime.

  • Simply the claim and people supporting a murder like this should be consider guilty as the one portrait the crime. If not excuse, shame on leader of West Bank who are only create more shedding of blood for all people Arab and other.

  • The terrorist who carried out that heinous crime in Jerusalem was a murderer. The PLO bears responsibility for inciting its Arab population to murder Jews. The only occupiers are the PLO-Hamas terrorist entities, whose leaders destroyed innocent Jews and a generation of Arab youth.
