We kill because it’s a Palestinian “value,” says Palestinian leader Abbas Zaki

Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki: "When the children of Palestine felt a while ago that the [PA] leadership didn’t know what to do… Muhannad Halabi went out with a knife… He succeeded in infiltrating Jerusalem and killed a rabbi [Nehemiah Lavi]… When he saw… a small child – a woman and her son - he did not kill him (sic., he stabbed and injured both). This is from Almighty Allah. For we don't kill people as we please. There are values, customs."

Muhannad Halabi - 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who murdered 2 Israelis, Rabbi Nehemiah Lavi and Aharon Bennett, and - contrary to what Abbas Zaki claims in this speech - injured Bennett’s wife, Adele, and their 2-year-old son in a stabbing attack in the Old City of Jerusalem on Oct. 3, 2015. Following the attack, he was shot and killed by Israeli security forces. Prior to his attack, the terrorist wrote on Facebook that a "third Intifada” had begun.
