PA: Israel sees glorification of terrorist Mughrabi as extreme

Ashraf Al-Ajrami, former Palestinian Minister of Prisoners' Affairs in PA daily:
“[PA] talk about Shahids (Martyrs) is considered, from their [Israel’s] point of view, extremism and support for terror. This is what happened after the visit by the [Palestinian] Prime Minister [Salam Fayyad] to Nablus and his participation in condolences to the families of the Shahids (Martyrs) and the residents of Nablus, after Israel killed three Shahids (Martyrs) in that city [terrorists who killed an Israeli citizen in a December 2009 drive-by shooting, later killed by Israel]. Likewise, naming a square after Dalal Mughrabi is [according to Israel] reason for criticism and attack."

Note: Dalal Mughrabi led the most lethal terror attack in Israel's history in 1978, when she and other terrorists hijacked a bus and killed 37 civilians, 12 of them children.
