PA officials honor terrorist killers on PA TV

PA TV live broadcast of ceremony commemorating anniversary of the death of Ghassan Kanafani – Tulkarem. See descriptions of the honored terrorists below.
Tulkarem district governor, Jamal Sa'id: "We commemorate all the Martyr (Shahid) fighters who have left us, and whose light continues to illuminate our path. [These lights] instilled hope within us, and emphasize to us that only the revolution can take death and use it [positively] as a means to forge a path. At this time, on the anniversary of the death of the man among men, we recall the Imam [leader] of the modern revolution, Yasser Arafat, the doctor of the revolution, George Habash, and the conscience of the revolution, Salah Khalaf-Abu Iyad, and the prince of Martyrs (Shahids), Abu Jihad. We recall Abu Ali Mustafa, Ahmed Yassin, [Fathi] Shaqaqi, Abu Abbas, Thabet Thabet, and all the fallen Martyrs whose flags have not fallen from the sky of the homeland and the sky of the struggle."
Mohammad Shtayyeh, member of the Fatah Central Committee: "We, of the Fatah movement, do not cry over Martyrs. It is natural that a fighter should die as a Martyr, [as did] Abu Jihad, Abu Iyad, the Martyr, the symbol Yasser Arafat, and thousands more. But what makes Ghassan Kanafani special is that he died as a Martyr early on, like the Martyrdom-seekers Kamal Adwan, Kamal Nasser, Abu Yusuf Al-Najjar, and Abu Ali Iyad…
Today we recall Hani Al-Hassan, who said: 'Military action seeds, and political action reaps.'"
