Abbas sends emissary to Beirut on death of Hezbollah religious leader

     PA TV news host: “Azzam Al-Ahmad, member of the Fatah Central Committee, as the emissary of President Mahmoud Abbas, at the head of the PLO delegation, presented condolences in Beirut on behalf of the Palestinian leadership and people for the death of the late religious leader, Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah.”

Note: Fadlallah was on the U.S. list of wanted terrorists and one of his final acts included authorizing a fatwa (Islamic religious ruling) sanctioning suicide attacks on U.S. troops and Israel. In addition Al-Jazeera reported: "The CIA accused Fadlallah of responsibility for the bombing that destroyed the Marines' barracks near the Beirut airport in 1983, in which hundreds of U.S. soldiers were killed."
