Abbas' advisor praises terrorist as “heroic Martyr”

On Jan. 29, 2014, a Palestinian named Muhammad Mubarak shot at an Israeli checkpoint north-east of Ramallah. He was killed in the ensuing exchange of fire with Israeli forces. Shortly after the shooting, Abbas' advisor Sultan Abu Al-Einein praised the terrorist on his Facebook page, calling him "our heroic Martyr":
 "In the name of the merciful and compassionate Allah, 'Of the believers are men who are true to that which they covenanted with Allah. Some of them have paid their vow by death (in battle), and some of them still are waiting; and they have not altered in the least.' [Quran, Sura 33:23, Pickthall translation] With the most exalted expressions of honor and pride and with symbols of Jihad and resistance, we part with piety from our heroic Martyr (Shahid) Muhammad Mahmoud Mubarak from the resolute Jalazone refugee camp, who ascended to Heaven as a Martyr in the battlefield while challenging the Zionist enemy. We ask Allah to grant mercy on our Martyr and give forbearance and solace to his family and relatives. To the eternal Paradise, oh our heroic Martyr."
