Abbas glorifies shooter of Rabbi Glick

On Oct. 29, 2014, Islamic Jihad member and released prisoner Mutaz Hijazi shot Rabbi Yehuda Glick at point-blank range in an attempt to assassinate him. Rabbi Glick was seriously wounded in the attack. Hijazi was killed the following day after opening fire on the Israeli policemen who came to arrest him.
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ condolence letter to the family of the terrorist:

“[PA] President Mahmoud Abbas expressed his anger and his condemnation of the abominable crime committed against Martyr (Shahid) Mutaz Hijazi, who was murdered last Thursday [Oct. 30, 2014] by the killing and terror gangs of the Israeli occupation army. In a telegram delivered yesterday [Nov. 2, 2014] by Minister of Jerusalem Affairs and District Governor Adnan Husseini to the Martyr’s relatives in the village of Silwan, he [Abbas] said that Martyr Mutaz rose to Heaven while defending our people’s rights and holy places. In addition, he condemned this barbaric act, which is added to the occupation’s crimes against our people since the Nakba (i.e., ‘the catastrophe’ Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel), as well as the continuation of the historic injustice being committed against it wherever it is present.”
