Fatah: Replace today's "whores"
with yesterday's Martyrs -
killers of Israelis from the past
On Facebook, Fatah wishes for return
of female terrorists and suicide bombers
who killed 46 and injured more than 200:
"Where are you, Dalal [Mughrabi]?
Swear in Allah's name that you will return...
bring Ayyat Al-Akhras, Andalib Takatka
and Wafa Idris with you"
"Teach these whores [who demonstrated yesterday]
that the homeland needs sacrifice and blood"
by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik
Fatah's Facebook page continues to promote killing of Israelis and praises terrorists, as documented by Palestinian Media Watch. The administrator of "Fatah - The Main Page" expressed longing for the return of terrorist Dalal Mughrabi, who participated in attack that killed 37, and for suicide bombers Ayyat Al-Akhras, Andalib Takatka and Wafa Idris, who in total killed 9 and wounded more than 200. This was expressed as part of an overall condemnation of Palestinian women who demonstrated against the renewal of the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. The demonstrators were referred to as "whores."
The Fatah page administrator addressed the terrorist killers and asked them to "come back" to teach Palestinians to use violence against Israel and die willingly as Martyrs for Palestine:

"Come back here, my sisters, in Allah's name. Teach yesterday's whores [at the demonstration] how the struggle is carried out, how to sacrifice for Palestine. Teach them how the Palestinian woman acts like Al-Khansa... Come back, oh you modest [women], and teach these whores that the homeland needs sacrifice and blood and not a modeling show..."
The reference to Al-Khansa encourages Palestinian parents to happily sacrifice their children in battle. Al-Khansa is a famous Arab female poet from the early Islamic period (7th century). She is honored in Islamic tradition for sending her four sons into battle and rejoicing when they all died as Martyrs.
The Fatah Facebook page also compared the "modest" women of the past, the terrorist killers, to "the whores," the Palestinian women demonstrators of today:
"Shame on the whores who led the demonstration yesterday [Aug. 28, 2013], and this morning I find no way to describe them but as whores on the sidewalks of the Muqata'a' (i.e., the PA's Presidential Headquarters)."
PMW has documented that Fatah uses its Facebook page excessively to glorify violence and terrorists.
The following is the text on Fatah's Facebook page, posted the day after Palestinians demonstrated against renewed peace talks between Israel and the PA:

Text: "Where are you, Dalal [Mughrabi]? Swear in Allah's name that you will return, if only for a moment. On your way, bring Ayyat Al-Akhras, Andalib Takatka and Wafa Idris with you. Bring the Martyrs with you. Come back here, my sisters, in Allah's name. Teach yesterday's whores [at the demonstration] how the struggle is carried out, how to sacrifice for Palestine. Teach them how the Palestinian woman acts like Al-Khansa and not like some young whore standing in the streets in the ugliest way, [using] the dirtiest words. Come back, oh you modest [women], and teach these whores that the homeland needs sacrifice and blood and not a modeling show and vulgar words and obscenities that [even] men are ashamed to utter. Rest in peace, [you] Al-Khansas of Palestine, our female Martyrs, our female fighters and Dalal [Mughrabi]'s sisters. Shame on the whores who led the demonstration yesterday [Aug. 28, 2013], and this morning I find no way to describe them but as whores on the sidewalks of the Muqata'a' (i.e., the PA's Presidential Headquarters)."

Dalal Mughrabi - led the most lethal terror attack in Israel's history in 1978, when she and other terrorists hijacked a bus and killed 37 civilians, 12 of them children.
Ayyat Al-Akhras - the youngest female Palestinian suicide bomber (age 17). She killed 2 Israelis and injured 28 in a suicide bombing near a Jerusalem supermarket on March 29, 2002.
Andalib Takatka - female suicide bomber who killed six and wounded more than 80 in her attack on Jerusalem's Mahane Yehuda outdoor market on April 12, 2002.
Wafa Idris - was the first Palestinian female suicide bomber. She killed one and injured over 100 in her attack in central Jerusalem on January 27, 2002. As a volunteer for the Palestinian Red Crescent, she was able to bypass Israeli security and enter Jerusalem in a Palestinian ambulance.
Al-Khansa - famous Arab woman and poet from the earliest period of Islam (7th century), honored in Islamic tradition for sending her four sons to battle and for rejoicing when they all died as Martyrs. She has been lauded by the PA and is often presented as a role model for mothers.
Note: The Fatah Facebook page was not taking issue with the fact that the women were protesting renewed peace talks. The Facebook page was taking issue with the coarse way that the protesters behaved. Op-eds in the PA media indicated that the protest was also directed against Abbas personally.
The importance of the item is the calling for murderers/terrorists to return. Terrorists were mentioned because they represent what a Palestinian woman should be according to Fatah, as opposed to the “whores” who screamed obscenities at Abbas.
The Facebook page where this item was posted, called "Fatah - The Main Page," is an official Fatah Facebook page. The page defines itself as belonging to the Fatah Mobilization and Organization Commission. Each Fatah commission has an official website. The official website of Fatah's Mobilization and Organization Commission links to this Facebook page.
