"A Martyr who sat on the shoulders of Heaven and smiled"

By Nan Jacques Zilberdik

One of the latest new Palestinian "heroes" is "Martyr" Ahmed Nasr Jarrar - the terrorist who led the terror cell that murdered Rabbi Raziel Shevach, a father of six, in a drive-by shooting on Jan. 9, 2018, near Havat Gilad in the Nablus area.

Terrorist Jarrar was shot and killed during an exchange of gunfire with Israeli soldiers while resisting arrest near Jenin on Feb. 6, 2018. Palestinian Media Watch has documented that Abbas' Fatah Movement has honored him several times, and continues to do so as seen in additional Facebook posts below.

Palestinians have also named sports tournaments after the terrorist. A futsal championship was held in the Nablus area:

In Gaza too, terrorist Jarrar is a hero with two sports tournaments having already been named after him:

"The Martyr Ahmed Nasr Jarrar Table Tennis Cup" (to be held later this month)

"The Martyr Ahmed Jarrar Handball Cup" (date to be announced)
[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 19, 2018]

The following are 10 Fatah posts on Facebook glorifying terrorist Jarrar:

The image below shows a doctored picture of terrorist Ahmed Nasr Jarrar, in which a picture of his head has been put on the body of a video game character. The image shows terrorist Jarrar in a military uniform with a holstered handgun, and a Palestinian flag has been added as an arm badge to the video game character's body. In the upper left corner appears the Fatah logo that includes a grenade, crossed rifles, and the PA map of "Palestine" that presents all of Israel as "Palestine" together with the PA areas.

The video shows an interview with the mother of terrorist Ahmed Nasr Jarrar, who led the murder of Rabbi Raziel Shevach on Jan. 9, 2018, in a drive-by shooting. An excerpt of the interview shown in the video:

Mother of terrorist Ahmed Nasr Jarrar: "Praise Allah, praise Allah, praise God for every situation. Praise God, may Allah take revenge on them and their assistants; may Allah take revenge on them and their assistants."
Reporter: "There is a picture that was published, did you see it?
Mother: "Yes, first thing in the morning they said to me: 'Is this your son or not your son?' I said that it looks like a scarf, not a beard. His beard is blond, but apparently he put on a scarf, poor thing. In other words, praise Allah, praise Allah. Our God honored him, praise Allah, praise Allah. Allah chose him [to be] among the Martyrs (Shahids), praise Allah. Praise Allah, our God chose him, praise Allah."
Reporter: "Have you seen his personal belongings?
Mother: "Yes, they brought his pants and shirt. The coat does not look like his, but I recognized his shirt and the pants."
Reporter: "And there was also a Quran."
Mother: "Yes, a Quran. His father gave him the Quran when he was little... and he would carry it in his pocket. It was perforated by the shots he took to the chest, poor thing. May Allah have mercy on him and forgive him. How religious he was, and how he aroused pride. He is the son of all of Palestine, not just my son. Knock on wood, he shook the whole [Zionist] entity. Praise Allah, praise Allah, praise Allah, praise Allah. Patience is beautiful and our assistance is from Allah. Praise Allah for every situation, praise Allah."
Reporter: "Very good."
[Official Fatah Facebook page, Feb. 6, 2018]

The following is additional information on terms, terrorists, and others mentioned in the Fatah Facebook posts above:

The Al-Buraq Wall - Islam's Prophet Muhammad is said to have rode during his Night Journey from Mecca to "al aqsa mosque", i.e., "the farthest mosque" (Quran, Sura 17), and there tied his miraculous flying steed named Al-Buraq to a "stone" or a "rock." (Jami` at-Tirmidhi, Book 47, Hadith 3424). In the 1920's, Arab Mufti Haj Amin Al-Husseini decided to identify the Western Wall of the Temple in Jerusalem as that "rock" or "stone," and since then Muslims refer to the Western Wall as the "Al-Buraq Wall."

Khaled Al-Tayeh - Palestinian who was killed during clashes with Israeli soldiers in Nablus on Feb. 6, 2018. The soldiers were searching for terrorist Abd Al-Hakim Adel Asi who murdered Rabbi Itamar Ben-Gal on Feb. 5, 2018, and as they were leaving the city they came under fire and a confrontation broke out.

Hamza Zamaarah - Palestinian terrorist who stabbed and wounded an Israeli security guard at the entrance to Karmei Tzur near Hebron on Feb. 7, 2018. Zamaarah was shot and killed during the attack by another security guard.

Ahmed Ismail Jarrar - Palestinian terrorist who was a member of the terror cell led by Ahmed Nasr Jarrar that murdered Rabbi Raziel Shevach in a drive-by shooting on Jan. 9, 2018, near Havat Gilad, in the Nablus area. On Jan. 18, 2018, Jarrar and two other accomplices resisted arrest and opened fire on Israeli soldiers in Jenin, and Jarrar was shot and killed.

Basel Al-A'araj - head of a Palestinian terror cell that planned to attack Israeli targets. Al-A'araj and his cell were arrested by the PA Security Forces in spring 2016 and held in prison until they were released on Sept. 9, 2016, largely due to a public Palestinian campaign. Israeli soldiers tried to arrest Al-A'araj in El-Bireh on March 6, 2017, but he resisted and opened fire on them at which point they shot and killed him.

Abd Al-Hamid Abu Sorour - 19-year-old Hamas terrorist who on April 18, 2016, carried out a suicide bombing attack on bus no. 12 in the Talpiot neighborhood in southeast Jerusalem. 21 people were injured in the attack. Abu Sorour died of his injuries a few days later in an Israeli hospital.

Muhammad Abu Khdeir - Palestinian teen kidnapped and murdered by Israeli extremists in Jerusalem on July 2, 2014, in revenge for the kidnapping and murder of Israeli teens Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar and Naftali Fraenkel in the West Bank on June 12. Following Abu Khdeir's murder, Palestinians took to the streets of East Jerusalem in violent and continuous protests. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli ministers immediately condemned the revenge murder in the strongest terms. Israeli police arrested six Israeli suspects on July 6 of whom three confessed to murdering Khdeir. One of the murderers, Yosef Ben-David, is serving 1 life sentence and an additional 20 years. His two accomplices, both unnamed minors, are serving 1 life sentence and 21 years respectively.

Muhannad Halabi - 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who murdered 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."

Mahmoud Darwish is considered the Palestinian national poet. He published over 30 volumes of poetry and 8 books of prose and has won numerous awards. He joined the Israeli Communist Party in 1961 and the terrorist organization PLO in 1973, becoming a member of the PLO Executive Committee in 1987. He left the PLO in 1993 because it signed the Oslo Accords with Israel.
Many in Israel see his poetry as inciting hate and violence. One poem he wrote in 1988 at the height of the Palestinian wave of violence and terror against Israel (the first Intifada, 1987-1993) calls to Israelis: "Take your portion of our blood - and be gone... Live wherever you like, but do not live among us... Die wherever you like, but do not die among us... Leave our country, our land, our sea, our wheat, our salt, our wounds, everything, and leave the memories of memory."
In 1964, he wrote a poem entitled "ID Card" in which he said: "I do not hate people, And I do not steal from anyone, But if I starve I will eat my oppressors' flesh; Beware, beware of my starving, And my rage."
He also wrote "Silence for the Sake of Gaza" in 1973, which many see as glorifying terror: "She wraps explosives around her waist and blows herself up. It is not a death, and not a suicide. It is Gaza's way of declaring she is worthy of life."
His defenders have claimed that Israel misinterprets his poetry and that he sought reconciliation with Israel. One wrote in 2017: "Darwish arranged meetings between Palestinian and Israeli intellectuals, and published essays on their discussions. He was optimistic that, through mutual understanding, the two sides could eventually reconcile." [https://www.bcalnoor.org/]
