Abbas honors terrorist Daoud, says must continue in his path

Al-Quds, Palestinian daily  |
The following is the report on Abbas’s statement read by Mahmoud Al-Aloul, member of the Fatah Central Committee, at the funeral of terrorist Abdallah Daoud:
"Mahmoud Al-Aloul, member of the Fatah Central Committee, delivered a speech on behalf of President Mahmoud Abbas, during which he recounted the life story of the Shahid (Martyr), who sacrificed his life for his country and for his people. Al-Aloul said that we must maintain the way of the Shahid Daoud, who always believed in the struggle, in love of the homeland, and in the realization of national unity."

Note: Abdallah Daoud headed the Palestinian intelligence service in Bethlehem, and was one of the terrorists who stormed into the Church of the Nativity in 2002, continuing to fight against Israel for several weeks while using the monks and the religious site as a shield. He was deported to Cyprus and later Mauritania, and died in Algeria of natural causes.
