PA TV broadcasts pictures of a PA town square’s honoring of a terrorist

The town square in the West Bank town Madama features a monument honoring "the heroic Martyrdom-Seeker," Omar Muhammad Ziyada and his "heroic Herzliya operation" – a suicide bombing on June 11, 2002, which killed a 15-year old girl and injured 16 others in Herzliya. The monument shows pictures of the suicide terrorist and of former PA Chairman Yasser Arafat.

The text above the terrorist's picture is a verse from the Quran:

"Fight them, and Allah will punish them by your hands, lay them low and give you victory over them, and heal the hearts of a believing people." [Quran, 9, 15]

Below the picture of the terrorist are the words:

"The heroic Shahada–Seeker (Martyrdom-Seeker, PA term of honor for suicide terrorists) Omar Muhammad Ziyada (Abu Samed) who carried out the heroic Herzliya operation on June 11, 2002." Click to view bulletin

Note: Omar Muhammad Ziyada carried out a suicide bombing in 2002 that killed a 15-year-old girl and injured 16 others in the Israeli city of Herzliya.
