Excerpt of a column by Muwaffaq Matar, Fatah Revolutionary Council member and regular columnist for the official PA daily


Headline: “Um Nasser Abu Hmeid (i.e., mother of terrorists responsible for at least 10 murders; see note below) – a school for resolve and willpower



“[Um Nasser Abu Hmeid - ] A Palestinian woman and mother of six heroes, of whom five are prisoners in the Israeli racist colonialist occupation’s detention camps: Jihad, Nasr, Sharif, Nasser, and Muhammad. The sixth, Abd Al-Mun’im, is a Martyr. She has received the titles ‘Khansa of Palestine’ and ‘oak tree of Palestine,’ and became a Palestinian national symbol. Palestinian national liberation movement leader and [PA] President of the Palestinian people Mahmoud Abbas kissed the head of the symbol of resolve and sacrifice, Latifa Muhammad Naji Abu Hmeid, who is known as Um Nasser Abu Hmeid…

These days, the racist Zionist occupiers are tormenting Um Nasser for the second time and slowly, after they already assassinated her son Abd Al-Mun’im. They are abandoning her eldest son, prisoner Nasser, as prey to lethal cancer that is similar to them in all its details and existence, as they are like a cancer… that infiltrates in order to kill whoever it can from among the living in order to spread and distribute death.
