Palestinian obligation to remember terrorist murderers and their “true stories of heroism”

Palestinian obligation to remember terrorist murderers and their “true stories of heroism” says Fatah official in Gaza

Fatah Commissioner of the Prisoners, Martyrs, and Wounded in the Gaza Strip Tayseer Al-Bardini: “Behind every [prisoner] is a story, an interesting story, a story of pain and sacrifice, a true story of heroism. We tell these stories to the Palestinian public so they will know their true heroes. It is inappropriate and I cannot understand how some of the Palestinian public does not remember Thaer Hammad (i.e., terrorist, murdered 10), for example. I cannot understand or forgive someone who does not remember Diya Al-Agha (i.e., terrorist, murdered 1) after 30 years, and I also cannot forgive someone who does not remember Karim Younes (i.e., terrorist, murdered 1 together with an accomplice) or Fuad Al-Shubaki (i.e., senior PA official and weapons smuggler).”
