Fatah glorifies 2 terrorists who murdered 3 Israelis: “Eternity and praise to our righteous Martyrs”

Image and text posted on the official Fatah Facebook page

The image shows terrorist Ashraf Na’alwa – who murdered 2 – in the top center and terrorist Saleh Barghouti – who murdered a premature baby and wounded 7 others – on the left. The picture of Na’alwa has been photoshopped so that he is seen with a rifle slung over his shoulder and a Palestinian flag design on his chest.
In the upper left and right corners of the image is the Fatah logo that includes a grenade, crossed rifles, and the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel as “Palestine” together with the PA areas.
In front of the picture of Na’alwa is the text “Martyr (Shahid) Ashraf Na’alwa,” and in front of the picture of Barghouti is the text “Martyr Saleh Barghouti.” There is a picture of former PLO and PA Chairman Yasser Arafat next to each of their names.
At the bottom of the image are splashes of blood with the text: “In Paradise, the meeting place”

Barkan Industrial Zone Attack – 23-year-old Palestinian terrorist Ashraf Walid Suleiman Na’alwa shot and murdered his 2 Israeli coworkers Kim Levengrond-Yehezkel and Ziv Hajbi in a factory in the Barkan Industrial Zone near Ariel on Oct. 7, 2018. Na'alwa fled the scene, but was located two months later in Nablus and shot and killed in a shootout when the Israeli army and police tried to apprehend him on Dec. 13, 2018.
Until this attack, the Barkan Industrial Zone had been an example of coexistence with Israelis and Palestinians working together.

Ofra shooting attack – Palestinian terrorists shot and wounded 7 Israelis - a pregnant woman, her husband, another man, and 4 teenagers - in a drive-by shooting attack next to Ofra, north of Jerusalem, on Dec. 9, 2018. The pregnant woman was severely wounded and doctors had to deliver her baby prematurely before operating on her. The baby died three days later. The terrorists fled the scene but were located three days later. One terrorist, Saleh Omar Saleh Barghouti, was shot and killed by the Israeli army during the attempt to apprehend him, while other terrorists were taken into custody.

Yasser Arafat – Founder of Fatah, former chairman of the PA. During the 1960s, 70s and 80s Arafat was behind numerous terror attacks against Israelis. Although he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 together with then Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and then Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Shimon Peres “for their efforts to create peace in the Middle East" after signing the Oslo Accords peace agreement, Arafat launched a 5-year terror campaign - the second Intifada (2000-2005) – in which more than 1,000 Israelis were murdered. Arafat died of an illness in 2004.
