Posted text: “Today is the anniversary of Red Tuesday (i.e., reference to three Arab terrorists executed by the British in 1929) - Martyrs (Shahids) Muhammad Jamjoum, Ataa Al-Zir, and Fuad Hijazi (see note below –Ed.), who were executed in the Acre Prison yard, and were an icon of Martyrdom-death (Shahada) for freedom.
An era of sacrifices emphasizes that victory will undoubtedly come. A blessing of peace for the souls of the Martyrs of Red Tuesday, brought to those who are loftier than all of us, the honored lords.”

Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir “committed particularly brutal murders [of Jews] at Safed and Hebron,” according to the report by British Government to the League of Nations. They were convicted of attacking British soldiers and murdering Jews in the 1929 Hebron Massacre, in which 65 Jews were murdered. They were executed by the British in 1930.
