Abbas Advisor reposts Fatah poster glorifying shooter of Rabbi Glick: "Fatah... accompanies its heroic Martyr to his wedding"

On Oct. 29, 2014, Mutaz Hijazi, an Islamic Jihad member and released prisoner, attempted to murder Rabbi Yehuda Glick, who was seriously wounded in the shooting attack. The following image and text were posted on Fatah's Facebook page and re-posted by Abbas' advisor Sultan Abu Al-Einein:

Text: "Martyr (Shahid) Mutaz Hijazi,the Martyr of Dawn in Jerusalem, is a released prisoner. He died as a Martyr (Shahid) following a gunfight. The occupation forces accuse him of attempting to assassinate the Zionist rabbi Yehuda Glick."

Text on poster shared by Abbas' advisor, Abu Al-Einein:
"'Among the believers are men true to what they promised Allah. Among them is he who has fulfilled his vow [to the death], and among them is he who awaits [his chance]. And they did not alter [the terms of their commitment] by any alteration.' (Surah 33:23, trans. Sahih International)
With great honor and pride
