PA adopts and glorifies murderers who participated in 1929 Arab massacre of Jews

Official PA TV News reporter: “Eighty-nine years and the wound still bleeds every day, and the words still echo during stormy emotions over the execution of the three heroes – Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir… The three Martyrs were executed by the [British] Mandate authorities on the pretext of their participation in the ‘Al-Buraq rebellion’ protests, which broke out when the Jews organized a large demonstration for what they called ‘the anniversary of the destruction of Solomon’s Temple,’ and the next day they held an additional demonstration through the streets of Jerusalem until they reached the Al-Buraq Wall, and there they read their hymns in a highly provocative manner to which the proud souls are not accustomed. The Palestinians came out – and among them the three Martyrs too… Songs have commemorated the three Martyrs and turned them into a legend of self-sacrifice for the homeland, and have emphasized that the souls that have been sacrificed for their country will not die.”

Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir “committed particularly brutal murders [of Jews] at Safed and Hebron,” according to the report by British Government to the League of Nations. They were convicted of attacking British soldiers and murdering Jews in the 1929 Hebron Massacre, in which 65 Jews were murdered. They were executed by the British in 1930.
