Abbas’ newest superhero - murderer of seven

Itamar Marcus  |
  • “President of the State of Palestine Mahmoud Abbas announced to our people… the death of heroic Martyr, prisoner, and commander Nasser Abu Hmeid” – a terrorist murderer of 7
     
  • PA Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh:
    “We console ourselves… over the loss of a fighter and pure-hearted son of Palestine”

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

PMW has written to US Secretary of State Blinken, US Special Representative for Palestinian Affairs Hady Amr, and American Ambassador to Israel Thomas Nides, demanding that the US condemn Mahmoud Abbas’ glorification of this murderer of Israelis, two of whom were American citizens, and that the US cut off all contact with Abbas and the PA until Abbas publicly apologizes and retracts his statement. In the world of international diplomacy American silence in the face of such outrage will be interpreted by the Palestinian Authority and Abbas as acceptance and legitimization of their support for terror. American silence will thus fuel PA-supported terror and add US responsibility for future Palestinian terror attacks.

Eli Cohen, Binyamin and Talia Kahane, Gadi Rejwan, Yosef Habi, Eli Dahan, and Sergeant-Major Salim Barakat, were murdered in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and Samaria, in terror attacks that were planned by terrorist Nasser Abu Hmeid.

Having killed so many Israelis, this murderer has been turned into the PA’s and Mahmoud Abbas’ superhero. Abbas himself chose to personally announce his death this morning. The terrorist was diagnosed with lung cancer in August 2021, and has been treated repeatedly in Israeli hospitals, yet this did not stop Abbas from adding the libel that Israel murdered Abu Hmeid:

“President of the State of Palestine Mahmoud Abbas announced to our people, the fighters, and the free people of the world the death of heroic Martyr, prisoner, and commander Nasser Abu Hmeid, who died as a Martyr today as a result of the policy of deliberate medical neglect, ‘slow murder’.

Abbas’ "heroic Martyr" was one of the founders and a commander of the internationally designated terror organization the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades - Fatah's terror wing. Abu Hmeid comes from a terror family. Four of his brothers are also serving multiple life sentences for murder of Israelis, and another brother was killed while committing terror attacks. Abbas chose this opportunity to likewise glorify the entire terror family as:

“A family that has constituted an example of sacrifice and resolve. He prayed to Allah, glorified and praised, that He endow them with patience and consolation.”

In addition to the words of honor from Abbas, Abu Hmeid who died last night had received PA terror rewards amounting to $405,000 (1,399,500 NIS) while the entire family has received terror salaries and monthly grants totaling $1,665,924 (5,756,700 NIS).

Joining Abbas and glorifying the terrorist murderer were other PA leaders as well as Abbas’ Fatah Movement:

 

PA Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh:

“We also console ourselves and our people over the loss of a fighter and pure-hearted son of Palestine, who sacrificed his freedom for the honor and freedom of his people and his homeland.”

Abbas’ Fatah Movement likewise glorified the murderer:

“The Fatah Movement announced to the masses of our Palestinian people, the Arab nation, and the free people of the world the death of its Martyr, heroic prisoner, and commander Nasser Abu Hmeid… In a statement by the [Fatah] Commission of Information, Culture, and Ideology, Fatah added: ‘We announce the death of this heroic Martyr, who has constituted a special case of struggle since joining Fatah. He was one of its prominent commanders on the ground in the first Intifada (i.e., Palestinian wave of violence and terror against Israel, approximately 200 Israelis murdered, 1987-1993) and second Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005, more than 1,100 Israelis murdered) … During his journey of struggle, he did not hesitate to fulfill his national duty’ …”

Director of Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Qadri Abu Bakr:

“[Abu Hmeid] died as a Martyr in the Assaf Harofeh Hospital, as a result of the policy of deliberate medical neglect, ‘slow murder,”
