Terrorist Muhannad Halabi stabbed and murdered 2 Israelis, Rabbi Nehemiah Lavi and Aharon Bennett, and injured Bennett's wife, Adele, and their 2-year-old son in the Old City of Jerusalem on Oct. 3, 2015. Palestinian Media Watch has reported that Abbas' advisor honored him for these murders, that Abbas' Fatah movement even brought holy soil from the Al-Aqsa Mosque to his grave and that the PA Bar Association chose to honor Halabi by posthumously awarding him an honorary law degree. 
 
As an additional honor, the municipality where the murderer lived has decided to name a street after him. "This is in order to honor Halabi, who carried out a stabbing and shooting operation (i.e., terror attack) against settlers in the Old City of occupied Jerusalem," the independent Palestinian news agency Donia Al-Watan reported. [Oct. 14, 2015]
 
"This is the least we can do for Martyr Halabi," Mayor Muhammad Hussein stated about the glorification of the killer, and went on to say that naming the street after him is "intended to emphasize the national role played by municipalities."
 
Wanting to honor the murderer further, the municipality of Surda-Abu Qash suggested that the mourning "take place in a municipality building, as Halabi is a pride and badge of honor for the whole village."
 
PMW has reported on the joy expressed by Palestinians after the first baby was named after the terrorist, and on the parents' joy over their son's "Martyrdom-death." 
 
Donia Al-Watan interviewed Palestinians about the naming of the street after the murderer and reported on two citizens who "welcomed this decision":
 
"Rifa' Ramadan, 50: 'This is a positive initiative and an excellent step toward honoring the name of the Martyr and keep it in memory.' Yaqub Bayatneh, 52, added that this is the least that can be done for an Al-Aqsa Martyr, Muhannad Halabi, and emphasized that all the places and roads, and even commercial areas, should be named after Martyrs, as they are more precious than all of us together."
 
The following is a longer excerpt of the report on the naming of a street after the murderer of two Israeli civilians:
 
Headline: "Main road between Birzeit and Ramallah named after Martyr Muhannad Halabi"
"In the last regular meeting of the Surda-Abu Qash municipality which took place yesterday, the members of the municipality and its chairman, Muhammad Kamel Hussein, decided to name the street connecting the village of Abu Qash to the Al-Rihan neighborhood, which is on the main road between Birzeit and Ramallah, after Martyr Muhannad Shafiq Halabi. This is in order to honor Halabi, who carried out a stabbing and shooting operation (i.e., terror attack) against settlers in the Old City of occupied Jerusalem.
Mayor Muhammad Hussein stated: '... This is the least we can do for Martyr Halabi. This is intended to emphasize the national role played by municipalities and not reduce its regular task regarding services, especially in light of the ongoing conflicts and the difficult circumstances, which the villages and districts in the West Bank are experiencing.'
Hussein noted that the Surda-Abu Qash municipality promised to carry out all the preparations necessary to open the house of mourning for the Martyr, and suggested initially that it [the mourning] take place in a municipality building, as Halabi is a pride and badge of honor for the whole village. However, the Martyr's family insisted that the condolences for their son take place in their house which is under threat of demolition, and the municipality erected a tent next to the Martyr's home to show it that it accepted its request.
[Mayor] Hussein clarified that the town provided volunteers from the villages of Surda and Abu Qash, fulfilled the obligation of feeding the Martyr's family, and participated in its sorrow over its son.
Citizens of the village Abu Qash welcomed this decision [of naming a road after Halabi], which went into effect the moment it was made.
Rifa' Ramadan, 50, said in regards to this topic: 'This is a positive initiative and an excellent step toward honoring the name of the Martyr and keep it in memory.'
Yaqub Bayatneh, 52, added that this is the least that can be done for an Al-Aqsa Martyr, Muhannad Halabi, and emphasized that all the places and roads, and even commercial areas, should be named after Martyrs, as they are more precious than all of us together."
[Donia Al-Watan (independent Palestinian news agency), Oct. 14, 2015]
 
Muhannad Halabi - 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who killed 2 Israelis, Rabbi Nehemiah Lavi and Aharon Bennett, and injured Bennett's wife, Adele, and their 2-year-old son in a stabbing attack in the Old City of Jerusalem on Oct. 3, 2015. Following the attack, he was shot and killed by Israeli security forces. Prior to his attack, in a post to his private Facebook page, the terrorist referred to recent terror attacks as part of a "third Intifada," and said that it was a response to Israel's actions at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and that the Palestinian people would not "succumb to humiliation." This is a reference to the PA libel that Israel is plotting to take over and destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to the PA's portrayal of Jews praying on the Temple Mount as "an invasion of the Al-Aqsa Mosque."
