"The earth is soaked with your blood
like a perfume exuding fragrances...
Your blood longs for the earth...
You rise like a flood, heralded in Paradise...
We are walking the same path"

As Hamas continues to launch missiles into Israel, Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah movement expresses its support for the murder of Israelis by posting a video praising nine female terrorists, among them eight suicide bombers.
The nine murderers whom Fatah chose to glorify killed 75 and wounded over 350 people in total. They were:
Dalal Mughrabi, bus hijacker (37 killed)
Hanadi Jaradat, suicide bomber (21 killed)
Andalib Takatka, suicide bomber (6 killed)
Hiba Daraghmeh, suicide bomber (3 killed)
Ayyat Al-Akhras, suicide bomber (2 killed)
Zainab Abu Salem, suicide bomber (2 killed)
Wafa Idris, suicide bomber (1 killed)
Mirfat Mas'oud suicide bomber (1 wounded)
Darin Abu Aisheh, suicide bomber (3 wounded)
(See more information on attacks below.)
Photos accompany a song that honors the female terrorists, lauding them as "girls who offered [their lives], graced with determination... crowned with pride," and vowing to "walk the same path":
The following are the lyrics glorifying the terrorist murderers:
"[They confronted] the enemies like a storm, salute the self-sacrificing female fighters
Between photos of the terrorists, the video shows images from scenes of terror attacks: Victims and dead bodies being carried away, and scenes of fighting and wounded soldiers.
Next to the video, Fatah wrote in its Facebook post: "The female Martyrdom-seekers of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades." Most of the terrorists honored in the video are from the Fatah movement, but three are from the terror organization Islamic Jihad.
