Headline: “Two symbolic funerals and an activity to encourage reading as a sign of loyalty to the soul of Martyr and scout leader Baha Alyan”
     “The spirit of he who gave the ten commandments (referring to a post by Baha Alyan on his Facebook page before he carried out his terror attack in which he murdered 3, see below -Ed.), leader in the Palestinian scouts Baha Alyan, is wandering throughout the homeland; from Rafah, the citadel of the south, through Hashem’s (i.e., Prophet Muhammad’s grandfather) Gaza, to the northernmost point, the message from Rafah to Jerusalem was #Wedding_procession_of_Baha (i.e., a Martyr's funeral is considered wedding to the 72 Virgins in Paradise in Islam).
The Martyr (Shahid) Ziyad Abu Ein [scout] troop in the Rafah [Scout] Commission participated in a chain of readers around the Al-Najma Square in the city, under the title #Palestinian_youth_read. [This activity] was similar to the longest chain [of readers] in Jerusalem, which was led by Baha Alyan.
The Crescent of Palestine scout troop in the Gaza [Scout] Commission held a symbolic funeral in the streets of Gaza City [and participants] carried pictures of Baha. In a different funeral in the Northern Gaza [Scout] Commission, a coffin was carried with pictures of Martyr Baha on it. It was held by a scout troop named after Baha Alyan, Future of the Homeland. Those responsible for all of the activities emphasized that these activities are only a part of the loyalty and the oath to the blood of #Baha_Alyan, the Martyr, the man, and the knight of the media of the scout [movement], who was always [active] in the arenas of volunteer activity.”

Baha Alyan and Bilal Ghanem – 22 and 23-year-old Palestinian terrorists who on Oct. 13, 2015, boarded a bus in Jerusalem's Armon Hanatziv neighborhood with a gun and a knife and attacked passengers, killing Israelis Haviv Haim (78) and Alon Govberg (51), and Richard Lakin (76), and wounding 3 Israelis. Alyan was shot and killed by an Israeli security guard at the scene and Ghanem, a Hamas terrorist who served time in Israeli prison in 2013-2014, was wounded. Ghanem is serving 3 life sentences and an additional 60 years for these murders.

Baha Alyan’s “10 commandments of every Martyr,” posted on his Facebook page before he carried out his terror attack:
“1. I instruct the factions not to take responsibility for my Martyrdom-death, for my death was for the homeland and not for you.
2. I do not want any posters or T-shirts, as my memory will not only be a poster hanging on the walls.
3. I instruct you not to exhaust my mother with questions meant to win over the sentiments of the spectators and nothing more.
4. Do not sow hatred in my son’s heart. Let him discover his homeland and die for his homeland, and not in order to avenge my death.
5. If they [Israel] wish to demolish my home, let them do so, since the stone is not more precious than the soul created by my God.
6. Do not grieve over my Martyrdom-death, grieve over what will happen to you after I am gone.
7. Do not look for what I had written before my Martyrdom-death, look for what is the reason behind my Martyrdom-death.
8. Do not cry out in my funeral procession or push each other, but be only pure during the funeral prayer, nothing more.
9. Do not turn me into another number you count today and forget tomorrow.
10. I will see you in Paradise.”
