Op-ed in PA daily glorifies arch-terrorist Abu Jihad, murderer of 125

Op-ed by Hani Fahs in the official PA daily:
"Many times, Abu Jihad made his way into the hearts of fighters in other countries - from the Sandinistas in Nicaragua and the Pattanis in Thailand, to the Iranians, with all their factions and [political] affiliations. I don't recall seeing or hearing about them and those like them from anyone besides Abu Jihad. The only times I ever saw them were at his places of work - from his office to the bases he would insist on visiting and inspecting... and his sole aim was to help them adhere to the principles of revolution and to recruit them to Palestine's side. In this, in his actions and influence, he is on a par with, or close to, the symbolism of Yasser Arafat and his keffiyeh (Arab headdress), the poetry of Mahmoud Darwish, and the blood of Dalal Mughrabi, Bajes Abu Atwan and others... Abu Jihad remained [active] on the ground from the start of his Jihadist activity in 1955 until his Martyrdom in 1988. He was the spearhead of the bullets of the true resistors, and the first truly upright rock."
