This monument in honor of terrorist murderer Kamal Abu Wa’er exemplifies the great efforts the PA and Fatah spend on inculcating in the minds of Palestinians the ideology that terrorist murderers are heroes and role models.

Fatah and Jenin Municipality are currently in the process of erecting this monument for terrorist murderer of at least 4 Israelis, Kamal Abu Wa’er. The design of the monument includes two upraised chained hands, one holding an AK-47 assault rifle with a bayonet and the other making a “V” for victory. The PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel together with the PA areas as “Palestine” is also part of the monument.

Abbas’ Fatah Movement posted photos of the foundation of the monument:

That the PA and Fatah honor terrorist murderers is not new. Palestinian Media Watch has exposed hundreds of schools, institutions, streets, squares and other permanent public structures that have been named after terrorists and murderers, as well as activities like summer camps and military camps, sporting events, and festivals.

One such monument was erected by the PA to honor murderer Muhannad Halabi, a terrorist who stabbed 2 Israelis to death in the Old City of Jerusalem.

The PA municipality where murderer Halabi lived not only erected a memorial in his honor but also named a road after him.
