Fatah uses children as political pawns. Yes, again.

Fatah's Lion Cubs and Flowers children's movement posted images and text on its Facebook page



Posted text: “The boys and girls of the Jericho and Jordan Valley area, the children of the Ein Al-Sultan administrative area, are organizing a demonstration of solidarity with our heroic prisoners. We commemorate the veteran prisoners of Jericho, Jum’a Adam and Mahmoud Abu Kharabish (i.e., terrorists, murdered 5 together with an accomplice), after they began their 35th year under the occupier’s oppression. Release is near for our heroic prisoners.”


The images show Palestinian children participating in a demonstration of solidarity with terrorist prisoners.

Jum'a Adam, Ahmad Takrouri, and Mahmoud Abu Kharabish - Palestinian terrorists who threw a Molotov cocktail at an Israeli bus in Jericho in 1988, murdering a mother and her 3 children, as well as an Israeli soldier who tried to rescue them. All 3 terrorists were sentenced to life sentences. Takrouri was released in the Shalit prisoner exchange deal in 2011. Adam and Kharabish were scheduled to be released in 2014 in an Israeli gesture as part of peace talks, but the release was cancelled.
