Fatah glorified Wednesday's terrorist: 
"Heroic Martyr... who carried out the heroic 
stabbing operation"
  • On Friday, Fatah called for day of violence:
        "Friday of the Martyrs Rage! 
           Feb. 9, 2018"

     
  • PLO called for Martyrdom:
    "The blood of the Martyrs is the light of freedom"
By Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik


Contradicting Mahmoud Abbas' claims that the PA "seeks peace," his Fatah Movement continues to glorify terrorists and promote terror. On Wednesday last week, just hours after a terror attack, Fatah was already honoring the terrorist. The terrorist, Hamza Yusuf Zamaarah, who was killed while trying to stab an Israeli security guard, was immediately hailed as the "heroic Martyr... who carried out the heroic stabbing operation," by Fatah's Bethlehem branch. Fatah also asked Allah to "have mercy on the Martyr, let him dwell in Paradise, and grant his family consolation and patience."

A second post in his honor showed his picture and wrote:
"Praise and eternity to our righteous Martyrs"

Fatah doesn't only glorify terror. It also calls for terror. On Friday, Fatah posted two posters calling for Friday to be a day of "rage" and "Martyrdom."


One was a Fatah poster calling for "rage":


The image shows the face of a man who is shouting, and overlaid on his face is the Fatah logo that includes a grenade, crossed rifles, and the PA map of "Palestine" that presents all of Israel together with the PA areas as "Palestine". In the upper left corner is the logo of the Fatah Shabiba Youth Movement, which includes the PA map of "Palestine" and above it the words:
"The State of Palestine."

The second Fatah post was a PLO poster calling for "Martyrdom":
                 "The blood of the Martyrs is the light of freedom"

The invitation also called for more riots and violence:

The PLO factions and institutions and activists of the Nablus district
Invite you
To say the Friday prayers
Friday of loyalty to the Martyrs (Shahids)
Time: Friday, Feb. 9, 2018
Location: Al-Shuhada Square
Jerusalem is Arab and the capital of the Palestinian state
And the blood of the Martyrs is the light of freedom"

The bottom of the image shows scenes from Jerusalem. Also on the poster are the Palestinian flag, the PLO logo and the PA map of "Palestine" that presents all of Israel as "Palestine" together with the PA areas.

Text on logo: "The Palestinian Liberation Organization National unity, national mobilization Liberation"

Palestinian Media Watch has exposed similar calls for Martyrdom by Fatah

PMW has exposed numerous calls for "
rage" by Fatah. 

Earlier in the week, Fatah's Nablus branch praised "Martyrs" and their "fragrance" as an integral part of "the homeland":

And how does the fragrance of jasmine not disappear from it?"

The image shows a red flower with a keffiyeh (Arab headdress) around it. To the left is a picture of former PLO and PA Chairman Yasser Arafat, and under it the Dome of the Rock. In the bottom left corner is 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.
