      “Hebron District Governor Kamel Hamid paid a condolence visit to the relatives of Martyr (Shahid) Muayyad Awni Jabarin in the village of Said, together with heads of the [PA] security establishment and the district staff, on behalf of President Mahmoud Abbas. Until now, this village has sacrificed 12 Martyrs, who were murdered in cold blood by the occupation’s bullets. The district governor said: ‘The death of the Martyrs came as part of the crimes and the policy of daily killings carried out by the occupation army against our unarmed people, in order to terrorize it.’ He likewise emphasized his belief that our people will continue to stand firm on its land, adhere to its rights, struggle to obtain freedom and establish an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital. Hamid offered his sincere condolences and asked Allah, to let Martyr Jabarin dwell in Paradise, and bestow solace and patience upon his family.”

Muayyad Jabarin – a 20-year-old Palestinian terrorist from Sa’ir, near Hebron, who tried to stab Israeli soldiers at the Beit Anoun Junction on Jan. 14, 2016. He was shot and killed by the soldiers. In a last "will" that Jabarin left for his parents and which was published by the Palestinian Donia Al-Watan news agency, the terrorist wrote: “I will kill two Israeli soldiers and have my revenge through them... Allah willing, I will be a Martyr.”

Abbas: Murdering Israelis is “popular peaceful uprising”

Official PA TV News broadcast
Excerpt from PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ speech at the Palestine Prize ceremony
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: “No one called for this uprising (i.e., Oct. - Nov. 2015 terror campaign) and no one asked for it. It stemmed from the hearts of the young who have seen everything with their own eyes. They have seen the oppression, the settlements and they have seen the attacks by the herds of settlers, and therefore they have done what they have done (i.e., 14 killed by stabbings and shootings). We said to everyone that we want peaceful popular uprising, and that’s what this is. That’s what this is. However, the aggression of firing bullets has come from the Israelis.”

Abbas condemns Joseph’s Tomb arson, silent about terror attacks that kill Israeli civilians 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 17, 2015
This item was published during a terror wave in Israel that began in October 2015. The period saw an unusually high number of attacks against Israeli soldiers and civilians, particularly stabbings, shootings, and rock-throwing, but also run-over attacks and throwing Molotov cocktails. As of this writing (Oct. 25, 2015), PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has not condemned even one of these terror attacks. Instead, Abbas continues pouring fuel on the fire by telling Palestinians that the Al-Aqsa Mosque is in danger and encouraging them to “protect it.”  In this article, Abbas condemns and calls for an investigation into the arson carried out by Palestinians against Joseph’s Tomb on Oct. 16, 2015. However, Abbas’ condemnation for the spate of terror attacks in which Israelis have been murdered is conspicuous by its absence.

      “[PA] President Mahmoud Abbas publicized yesterday [Oct. 16, 2015] the decision to put together an immediate committee for the investigation of what occurred early yesterday morning at Joseph’s Tomb where irresponsible acts were committed, and to begin to repair the damages caused by this unacceptable act which deserves to be condemned. The president emphasized his absolute disapproval of acts of this type, and of every illegal act which harms our culture, religion, and ethics… Sources in the Palestinian security said to the Ma’an news agency that dozens of enraged [Palestinian] citizens gathered next to Joseph’s Tomb - which is considered by the settlers to be a [Jewish] holy site - invaded it, and threw a number of Molotov cocktails into it, which led to the ignition of a fire inside it.”

As of this writing (Oct. 25, 2015), PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has not condemned even one of these terror attacks.

Abbas himself also publicly condemned the arson on Joseph’s Tomb. However, Abbas’ condemnation for the spate of terror attacks in which Israelis have been murdered is conspicuous by its absence.

“The PA Ministry of Information called on all the Palestinian and foreign media to be accurate, professional, and objective in reporting the news related to the burning of a side room in Joseph's Tomb next to the Balata [refugee] camp by unknown individuals in the early hours of the morning yesterday [Oct. 16, 2015]. Likewise, it called on them [the media] to follow this matter via the committee put together by the president in order to investigate what happened in the area of Joseph's Tomb. The police began to investigate the event, while some of the media sites intentionally relied on an unclear security notice, and some of the headlines on new sites noted that the tomb was burnt, and the truth is that the part that was burnt was new, added by the occupation to the holy site, after it occupied the West Bank.”

He also said that the shooting of the student Marah Al-Bakri (i.e., terrorist who stabbed one) next to her school, and the two children from the Manasrah family (i.e., two terrorists who stabbed two) yesterday marks the education sector and youth as a target, all in order to intimidate the citizens and distance them from their city. Al-Ruweidi emphasized that the [Palestinian] residents of Jerusalem will not move from their city, and said: 'Their [the Israelis’] actions and policy will not scare us. We will remain in Jerusalem and protect it and its holy sites, first among them the blessed Al-Aqsa [Mosque].'"

     “Presidential Spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina stated that the execution of child Hassan Manasrah in front of the media, as child Muhammad Al-Dura was executed in the year 2000, is an abominable crime, and the legal, humanitarian and political responsibility for it is on the Israeli government. He demanded that the Israeli government catches those who committed this crime. Abu Rudeina stated: ‘If the government of Israel continues this escalation [of violence] by carrying out more grave acts of execution, the situation in the region will go out of control, and everyone will pay a heavy price for these Israeli crimes.’
Child Hassan Manasrah, 15, died as a Martyr yesterday and his cousin, Ahmad Saleh Manasrah, 13, was seriously wounded by the occupation’s gunfire, after, according to [the Israelis’] claim, they stabbed two settlers in the settlement of Pisgat Zeev, which is situated on the lands of Hizmeh and Beit Hanina in the north of occupied Jerusalem.”

“Page in honor of Jerusalem and saluting those within it
The lions of Allah in Jerusalem are protecting it
Kiss their foreheads, and do not forget their hands”

“Picture of the Martyr (Shahid) Muhannad Halabi, 19 years old, resident of El-Bireh in the Ramallah district, who carried out the stabbing and shooting operation (i.e., terror attack) against settlers in occupied Jerusalem, which led to the death of two settlers and serious injury of additional settlers this evening [Oct. 3, 2015].
The last thing the Martyr wrote on his Facebook page, 21 hours before he carried out his heroic operation was: ‘According to what I see, the third Intifada (i.e., Palestinian wave of violence and terror against Israel) has already broken out. What is happening in Jerusalem is what is happening to our holy sites and the place from where our Prophet [Muhammad] set out on his Night Journey (i.e., the Al-Aqsa Mosque), and what is happening to the women of the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is what is happening to our mothers and sisters, and I do not think the people should succumb to this humiliation.”
