PLO youth magazine publishes piece glorifying terrorist Abu Jihad

Zayzafuna published a piece in memory of arch-terrorist Abu Jihad, entitled The Last Page, by Hassan Saleh, Mayor of Jericho:
“Khalil Al-Wazir (Abu Jihad) –
With every step, you brought with you a handsome and practical
Palestinian presence,
interwoven with hope.
With you [were] speech and action.
Such is heroism and the era of men, oh master of men.”

Note: Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir) was a founder of Fatah and deputy to Yasser Arafat. He headed the PLO terror organization’s military wing and planned many deadly Fatah terror attacks, including the most lethal in Israeli history, the hijacking of a bus and killing of 37 civilians, 12 of them children.
Zayzafuna is a PLO magazine for children funded by the PA. The magazine, which includes material written by both the magazine’s staff and child readers, represents the values of the educators and serves as a window into the minds of the Palestinian children submitting material to the magazine. PMW’s book Deception includes a chapter on Zayzafuna. Following PMW’s exposure of Hitler glorification in the February 2011 issue, UNESCO halted its funding of the magazine. View UNESCO’s statement and PMW's bulletin on the December 2011 issue of the magazine.
