Fatah glorifies arch-terrorists, commemorating the "heroic acts" of the "Martyr" Abu Jihad and expresses loyalty to "the blood and soul of Martyr [Hamad co-founder] Rantisi"

Headline: “28 years since the assassination of commander Khalil Al-Wazir:
    “Today is the 28th anniversary of the death as a Martyr (Shahid) of commander Khalil al-Wazir ‘Abu Jihad,’ deputy general commander of the revolution’s forces and engineer of the first Intifada (i.e., Palestinian wave of violence and terror against Israel, 1987-1993), who was assassinated in his home in Tunisia by members of the Israeli Secret Intelligence Services under the leadership of former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak.
The Fatah Movement emphasized that it will walk with sure steps in the path that the movement with a long history has inherited from the struggles and heroic acts of Martyr Khalil Al-Wazir ‘Abu Jihad’ and all the Martyrs of the magnificent Palestinian revolution. Head of the information committee of the Fatah Mobilization and Organization Commission Munir Al-Jaghoub stated in a press release yesterday evening [April 15, 2016] on the occasion of the 28th anniversary of commander Khalil Al-Wazir’s death as a Martyr that ‘On this day Palestine sacrificed its fighter son, commander Abu Jihad… for the liberation, the building, and the state.’
He continued: ‘However, we do not forget the national trust carried by the Fatah Movement for all of the Martyrs, which obligates us to be loyal to the blood and soul of Martyr Doctor Abd Al-Aziz Al-Rantisi (i.e., co-founder of the terrorist organization Hamas) as a Palestinian Martyr who was emphatic in his resistance and his national standpoints against the thieving occupier.’ Likewise, he emphasized: ‘The blood of Martyrs Khalil Al-Wazir and Al-Rantisi will always constitute the symbol of the unity for which the Fatah Movement strives.’”

Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir) was a founder of Fatah and deputy to Yasser Arafat. He headed the PLO terror organization's military wing and also planned many deadly Fatah terror attacks. These attacks, which killed a total of 125 Israelis, included the most lethal in Israeli history - the hijacking of a bus and killing of 37 civilians, 12 of them children.
