Fatah official commemorates arch-terrorist Abu Jihad, “the Prince of Martyrs”

"At the end of its [Seventh International Bil'in] Conference, Bil'in held a memorial ceremony marking the third anniversary of the Martyr (Shahid) death of Bassam Abu Rahma, and marking the conclusion of the operations of the Seventh International Bil'in Conference for Popular Resistance, [held] under the slogan 'We are the broadest circle, on the national and world level, for popular resistance against the occupation.'
In his words on behalf of the Fatah movement, Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein noted the anniversary [of the deaths] of the three Martyrs: the two Kamals [Kamal Nasser and Kamal Adwan], and Abu Yusuf Al-Najjar, and the anniversary of the death of the Prince of Martyrs, Abu Jihad, Khalil Al-Wazir, which coincides with the anniversary of the death of Bassam Abu Rahma, and Palestinian Prisoners' Day. [Al-Einein] emphasized that our people, which has sacrificed greatly, continues with determination towards freedom."
