Mother of terrorists who killed 10 at National Women’s Day ceremony with PA PM, minister

Headline: “Shtayyeh: We are striving to create a great and rapid change in the status of Palestinian women”

“[PA] Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh said that ‘Achieving equality for women – not just in employment, but more importantly, also in human dignity… – is a right and not a gift from the men.’

He said this yesterday [Oct. 27, 2019], during a speech that he gave on behalf of [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas at the first National Palestinian Women’s Day ceremony…

Shtayyeh added: ‘I remember our female prisoners, the wives of our prisoners, their mothers, and their daughters in particular, our female Martyrs, and the families of our Martyrs. They are the ones who history sometimes deprives of their right. The research and documentation institutes need to document their role in a manner befitting this role.’”

The article includes a photo of PA Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh and PA Minister of Women’s Affairs Amal Hamad standing on either side of Um Nasser Abu Hmeid, the mother of terrorists responsible for at least 10 murders, and holding her hands at the event. Minister Hamad is holding Abu Hmeid’s left arm aloft and Abu Hmeid is making a “V” for victory with her fingers.

In the background is a large poster including the logo for National Palestinian Women's Day, which consists of the PA map of "Palestine" that presents all of Israel as "Palestine" together with the PA areas, with a circle next to it so that the map and circle together form the number "10" – for the month of October. On the map is written: "National Women's Day." Within the circle is the image of a woman whose hair forms the number “26,” and part of whose hair is in the colors of the Palestinian flag.
