 Abu Al-Einein: Killing rabbis while they pray
is “Allah's will” (2014)

Abbas' advisor and Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein is one of the many Fatah leaders who regularly refute the myth that Fatah is moderate and peace promoting. During an interview with a Palestinian news agency about building peaceful and normal relations with Israel, Abu Al-Einein explained that he rejects “negotiations, meetings, and normalization” activities and believes when a Palestinian meets an Israeli he should kill him:

Mahmoud Abbas' advisor, Sultan Abu Al-Einein:“Regarding the matter of normalization [with Israel] and the participation of members of the Fatah leadership and members of the PLO Executive Committee in Israeli conferences, Abu Al-Einein said: ‘If you would ask me about my personal position, I would tell you - every place you find an Israeli slit his throat. Likewise, I am against talks, negotiations, meetings, and normalization in all its forms with the Israeli occupation.’”

Based on his previous statements and Facebook posts it is clear that his statement promoting murder should be taken literally. Abu Al-Einein has stated in the past that killing Jews/Israelis is not merely a Palestinian national goal but is what Allah demands of Palestinians as an Islamic necessity. After a bloody terror attack in November 2014 in which 4 rabbis were murdered during prayer in a synagogue in Jerusalem, Abbas’ advisor posted pictures of the dead rabbis and a picture of their blood on his Facebook page to celebrate the murder. He wrote that the butchering of the rabbis with axes and kitchen knives was "the heroic operation at the religious Zionist institute.”



The next day Abbas’ advisor posted more text explaining that according to his view of Islam the murder of rabbis at prayer is something that Allah desires. Murdering rabbis in the synagogue, he said, makes the murderer a “soldier of Allah”:

“Blessed be your quality weapons, the wheels of your cars, your axes and kitchen knives. By Allah, these are stronger than the arsenals of our enemy, because [it’s] according to Allah's will. We are the soldiers of Allah."

Abu Al-Einein also glorified many of the terrorists who murdered Israelis during the recent terror wave. For example, he wrote to the terrorist who killed one and wounded 11 during an attack in the central bus station in the Israeli city Be’er Sheva:

“We loved you, while you sowed life for all Palestinians.”

Sultan Abu Al-Einein's terror support is typical of many of the leaders of Abbas' Fatah movement.
