Fatah official mocks Israel's defenses against terror and encourages killers: “May Allah grant them success”

Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki: “When [Muhannad] Halabi (i.e., terrorist, murdered 2) went out with a knife in spite of everyone, and they [Palestinians] began carrying out – may Allah grant them success – the Jerusalem operations (i.e., terror wave), they [Israelis] began to put cement blocks [at bus stops] to protect themselves.” [Official PA radio station The Voice of Palestine, Oct. 3, 2018] Abbas Zaki also holds the position as Fatah Commissioner for Arab and China Relations Muhannad Halabi - 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who murdered 2 Israelis, Rabbi Nehemiah Lavi and Aharon Bennett, and injured Bennett’s wife, Adele, and their 2-year-old son in a stabbing attack in the Old City of Jerusalem on Oct. 3, 2015. Following the attack, he was killed by Israeli police. Prior to his attack, the terrorist wrote on Facebook about recent Palestinian violence and terror attacks in response to Jews visiting the Temple Mount – and stated that it was a response to Israel’s actions at the Al-Aqsa Mosque.” This is a reference to the PA libel that Israel is plotting to take over and destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to the PA's portrayal of Jews praying on the Temple Mount as "an invasion of the Al-Aqsa Mosque." Palestinian terror wave (2015-2016) – Palestinian violence and terror attacks against Israelis, ‎including stabbings, shootings, throwing Molotov cocktails, and car rammings. It started in September 2015 and as of July 2016, 40 people were murdered (36 Israelis, 1 Palestinian, 2 Americans, and 1 foreign worker from Eritrea) and over 500 wounded.
