Abbas advisor: Murder of Palestinian teen might surpass crimes of the Nazis

Official PA TV broadcast the Friday ‎sermon from the Al-Tashrifat Mosque in ‎the presidential compound in Ramallah. ‎The sermon was delivered by Mahmoud ‎Al-Habbash, the Supreme Shari’ah Judge ‎and Mahmoud Abbas’ Advisor on ‎Religious and Islamic Affairs. Among the ‎audience was PA Chairman Mahmoud ‎Abbas.‎
Mahmoud Al-Habbash, the Supreme ‎Shari’ah Judge and Mahmoud Abbas’ ‎Advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs: “I ‎call on the world that was surprised by this ‎new Nazism, which perhaps surpasses ‎the crimes of the Nazis… Those who ‎killed Muhammad Abu Khdeir killed all ‎people, killed all the nations, killed the ‎concept of humanity, and the world today ‎must say a true word – not just a word ‎meant for the press or for the sake of ‎politeness or pity… We want punishment ‎for the criminals and justice for the victim.”‎

Note:‎ On June 12, 2014, Israeli teens Eyal ‎Yifrach, Gilad Shaar and Naftali Frenkel ‎were kidnapped while hitchhiking in the ‎West Bank. The boys' bodies were found ‎by Israeli security forces near Hebron on ‎June 30, 2014. They appeared to have ‎been shot to death soon after the ‎abduction. Two days later, Palestinian teen ‎Muhammad Abu Khdeir was kidnapped ‎and murdered in Jerusalem in a revenge ‎attack by Israeli extremists. Following this ‎murder, Palestinians took to the streets of ‎eastern Jerusalem in violent and ‎continuous protests. Prime Minister ‎Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli ‎ministers immediately condemned the ‎revenge killing in the strongest terms. ‎Israeli police arrested six Israeli suspects ‎on July 6th; under interrogation, three of ‎the suspects confessed to murdering ‎Khdeir.‎
