Terrorist murderer of 7 is a "hero" according to the PA

Headline: “About Nasser Abu Hmeid”


“If you are a Palestinian who was born in a refugee camp, grew up in a fighting family, with brothers who look like the land that sprouted them, and a special type of culture distinguishes your acts of heroism and the lifestyle that you live, all of this means that you constitute an example like the olive tree, the seam of the [traditional] garb, and the tales of the grandfathers.

His name is Nasser Muhammad Yusuf Abu Hmeid (i.e., terrorist, responsible for the murder of 7 people). He was born in 1972 to a family of refugees from the village of Al-Sawafir Al-Shamaliyya in the Gaza Strip. He joined the Fatah Movement and was one of its members in the first Intifada (i.e., Palestinian wave of violence and terror against Israel, approximately 200 Israelis murdered, 1987-1993), and the masses would personally call out his name at demonstrations. He was arrested in this intifada and released in 1994 after the Cairo Agreement (i.e., the Gaza-Jericho Agreement).

Because the struggle is Nasser’s nature and not something transient, he returned to activity in Fatah’s organizational institutions and became one of the commanders of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades(i.e., Fatah’s military wing) in the West Bank during the second Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005, more than 1,100 Israelis murdered). …On April 22, 2002, he was arrested together with his brothers at the Qalandiya [refugee] camp… and was sentenced to 7 life sentences and another 30 (sic., 50) years…

Nasser Abu Hmeid is one of the fighters who believed that the land is calling to its children and responded to its call without thinking even for a moment about what they would lose from their lives. More than this, they were and remain prepared to sacrifice what remains from their lives for its sake.”
