Fatah official glorifies terrorists and terror groups

Official PA TV program Topic of the Day, special broadcast on Israel bombing terror targets in the Gaza Strip in response to hundreds of missiles fired by Gazan terrorists, hosting Fatah Revolutionary Council member Muhammad Al-Laham

Fatah Revolutionary Council member Muhammad Al-Laham: "This occupation is not only filthy, but also cowardly. I am sure that if there was a global prize for the most contemptible and cowardly soldier, it would be given to the Israeli occupation soldier-"
Official PA TV host: "Unquestionably."
Muhammad Al-Laham: "-unquestionably, who succeeds in defeating unarmed civilians with lethal weapons, even atomic weapons, and not just F-16 and F-14 [fighter] jets. However, this cowardly occupation– a young man whose name is Ashraf Na'alwa (i.e., terrorist, murdered 2) from Tulkarem, from Shweikeh, has educated this occupation, which despite all of these capabilities is chasing the young man for months. He was not affiliated with any organization, did not take a military course, and did not train in the facility of some international intelligence agency – and despite this he has embarrassed the entire occupation establishment. This occupation is failing despite all of the propaganda that it is trying to market as an unbeaten army and all the rest – it is not true. A young man has ‘educated’ this occupation and humiliated it and its dignity, and in addition to him there are dozens and hundreds of other young people, children, and youth in Palestine who have humiliated the occupation…
This occupation, as I have told you, a small child in Gaza ‘educated’ this occupation, [and also] a young man in Tulkarem or in Bethlehem. You hear a lot of wild slogans here, but nobody should argue with anybody. Fatah fired a Katyusha rocket in 1969 from Mount Abu Ghneim towards the Israeli Parliament (PMW could find no record of such an incident –Ed.). One of the heroes of this operation was Abu Nasser Jadoua Al-Asa (PMW could find no details about him –Ed.)… who is still alive. Raed Al-Karmi (i.e., terrorist responsible for the murder of 9) and those who came after him. Even after the Oslo [Accords in 1993 there were] heroes such as Rael Al-Karmi, Abayat (PMW could not determine who was being referred to –Ed.), [Marwan] Zalum (i.e., terrorist, responsible for murder of at least 9), 'the knights of the night,' 'the Fatah Hawks,' Al-Sab'awi in Gaza (PMW could find no details about these groups –Ed.), Abu Rish (i.e., a branch of Fatah) – all of them taught the occupation a ‘lesson’ that this people cannot surrender, but rather will achieve its freedom and the establishment of its independent state."
