PA daily, terrorist’s parents glorify terrorist who murdered 2

Headline: “Despite the explosion and the destruction, Martyr Omar Abu Laila’s room stands firm”

“For five days the occupation army did not cease persecuting the Abu Laila family, even after the last battle in which their son Omar [Abu Laila] (i.e., terrorist, murdered 2) was victorious in his death as a Martyr on the night of March 19 [2019], after he refused to hand himself over to the hundreds of soldiers who surrounded him in the village of Abwein, north of Ramallah.

Yesterday morning [April 24, 2019] the occupation blew up his family’s home twice after invading his village of Al-Zawiya west of Salfit for over 10 hours with 30 military vehicles, two military bulldozers, and about 300 soldiers…

Despite the two explosions and the destruction of the home, Omar’s room remained standing firm and was very partially and minimally damaged compared to the complete destruction of the rest of the parts of the home.

Amin Abu Laila, the Martyr’s father, stood over the ruins of his home in which seven people lived, smiling and unwavering after the withdrawal of the occupation forces, and welcomed members of his village and the neighboring villages who gathered in their dozens in order to express solidarity with them. He said: ‘All that we have is a sacrifice for the pure soul of Omar and Palestine. The Palestinians have never attributed importance to a home or its stones. Omar was loved by the family, and today he is loved by the Palestinian people, the Arab world, and everyone who believes in the justice of our cause and who strengthens our hands.’ …

Ghadir, the Martyr’s mother, said: …‘I honor every visitor who comes after the destruction of the home, and the occupation will not prevent me from welcoming the visitors and those blessing over my son’s death as a Martyr, and from sitting with them on the threshold of the home.’ Omar, who went from being expelled to being a fighter, to a Martyr, to a body that is being held [by the occupation], and eventually to having an exploded and destroyed home, was a business management student in his first year at Al-Quds Open University. He liked to play with small children; he took them to the store and bought things for them. He liked cars, fancy watches, and elegant clothing.”

Omar Abu Laila – 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who stabbed and murdered Israeli soldier Gal Keidan, and shot and murdered Rabbi Achiad Ettinger, a father of 12, at Ariel Junction on March 17, 2019. Abu Laila was killed on March 19, 2019, during an exchange of gunfire with Israeli soldiers who attempted to arrest him.
