Father of terrorist glorifies another terrorist: "Everyone from Jabel Mukaber dreams to see that Martyr"

Official PA TV program Good Morning Jerusalem, interview with Muhammad Alyan, father of terrorist Baha Alyan, about the decision of the Israeli Minister of Internal Security to stop transferring the bodies of terrorists from Jerusalem to their families.
Muhammad Alyan, father of terrorist murderer Baha Alyan: “The very fact that the father of Martyr (Shahid) Alaa Abu Jamal (terrorist, murdered 1 –Ed.) signed such a guarantee (to hold a small funeral with no incitement –Ed.) is a type of discrimination, and means that the occupation police are afraid that all the young people of Jabel Mukaber (i.e., neighborhood in south-east Jerusalem) will throng to the cemetery, as Alaa Abu Jamal is a heroic Martyr and [everyone says:] ‘It cannot be that I will stay at home while he is being buried, even if I am old.’ Alaa is considered a symbol of the struggle and a symbol of the Martyrs and his operation (i.e., terror attack) was a heroic operation, and everyone from Jabel Mukaber dreams to see that Martyr.”
