PA TV glorifies murderers of Jews in 1929 as courageous “Martyrs”

Official PA TV program The TV Dictionary, on Fuad Hijazi who murdered Jews in the 1929 Hebron massacre and accompanying riots and was put to death by the British Mandate forces

Official PA TV Newsreader: “An hour before the death sentence was carried out, the British occupation authorities allowed them to meet their visitors, while wearing the red uniforms of those sentenced to death and awaiting their final hour. The Martyrs’ (Shahids’) mouths smiled, their souls were calm, and their courage was great. They are the ones who consoled and encouraged the visitors, instead of [the visitors] encouraging them.”

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.
