Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - July 5, 2010

 
Headline: "Impressive farewell to the Shahid (Martyr) commander Abu Daoud at the Al-Yarmouk refugee camp"
     "'He began his life as a regular individual and concluded it with giant stature.' Thus Abbas Zaki, member of the Fatah Central Committee, described the Shahid (Martyr) commander Abu Daoud who parted from his brothers and from his people two nights ago, after a life spent in struggle under the flag of the Palestinian National Liberation Movement (Fatah) and under the flag of the PLO...
He spent his life as a fighter for the liberation of this homeland and for the return of its dispersed children to it. He joined Fatah upon its establishment, and directed many fighting operations against the Israeli occupation. Generations of fighters and people of struggle were educated by him...
Zaki described the late commander thus: 'He started his life as a regular individual and concluded it with giant stature.' Speaking to WAFA news agency, he added: 'We have lost a man on the level of the Arab region and on the level of the world revolutionary movement, by virtue of his noble actions and his glorious history. Bestowing this honor in every place, inside the homeland and outside of it, does justice to this mighty man.'
Dr. Samir Al-Refa'i [Secretary of the Fatah branch in Syria] said: 'With the fall of Abu Daoud as a Shahid we have lost a man who is worth all other men together, but we have already become accustomed to this road being a long one, full of Shahids, commanders and fighters.
He added: 'Abu Daoud is one of the symbols of the Fatah movement. He lived his life wounded, and his wounds testify to his path of struggle and to his continuous struggle on behalf of his people and the homeland. He will always remain our ideal and a role model for the generations to come.'"

Note: Muhammad Daoud Oudeh, also known as Abu Daoud, planned the 1972 attack on Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics. On Sept. 5, 1972, eight members of the Palestinian terror organization Black September broke into the athletes' village at the Munich Olympics. They kidnapped and ultimately murdered 11 Israeli athletes and coaches. Oudeh died in July 2010. His death received extensive coverage in the official PA media, and he was glorified by PA leaders as a hero and Shahid - Martyr.
