Ahmed Sahwil speaking for the General Union of Palestinian Teachers in the Homeland and Diaspora: “Teachers and education community, it is you who gave and daily give the most exalted examples of sacrifice and bravery, for it is you who planted the values of manliness and sacrifice in the soul of the younger generation, and it is you who educated the generation of the first Intifada, the holy generation of stones, and [you educated] the generation of the second Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005). From Jesus’ birthplace, from the city of peace, I salute you all…
You, teachers of Palestine, are those who deserve only pride, for you are the brothers of Salah Khalaf, the Martyr (Shahid) teacher and his brother, Khalil Al-Wazir, the Martyr teacher, as well as the brothers of Sheikh Ahmed Yassin. These great leaders – you are their brothers and you follow their path.”
