PA TV presents murderer who stabbed 3 to death as compassionate because he "refused to harm" the children
'Israeli affairs expert' Fayez Abbas on Palestine This Morning: "Are they [Arab members of Israeli Parliament] the reason that the young person (i.e., terrorist Omar Al-Abd) from the village of Kubar entered the settlement [of Halamish] and killed 3 settlers in response to what is happening at the Al-Aqsa Mosque? ... This is the picture of the children claimed to be rescued, but there is a different story: The young person (i.e., the terrorist) knew there were children and refused to harm them, at least according to the Palestinian [reports]... (reading from Israeli newspaper): 'The mother of the children, says: I heard the one carrying out the operation say in Arabic: What is your name?... I understood that something bad was happening, and I quickly took the children to the second floor and I heard the sound of shooting.' ..."
Official PA TV host: "If she says she took the children, so he (i.e., the terrorist) did see them."
Fayez Abbas: "Right."

Omar Al-Abd – 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who stabbed and murdered 3 Israelis - Yosef, Haya, and Elad Salomon - and severely injured 1 - Tova Salomon - as they sat at their Sabbath dinner table in Halamish, north of Ramallah, on July 21, 2017. Al-Abd was shot and wounded by a neighbor and taken into Israeli custody, receiving necessary medical treatment in an Israeli hospital.
Before committing the attack, Al-Abd wrote in his "will" on Facebook that he was taking his knife to respond to what was happening at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and did not expect to return. A week earlier, a terror attack was carried out at the Temple Mount in which 2 Israelis were murdered. Following the attack Israel closed the Temple Mount for two days and reopened it with metal detectors at the entrance to the holy site. Palestinians interpreted these measures as an “aggression” and “attack” against the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
