Abbas' advisor to shooter of Rabbi Glick: "Your bullets were a beacon”

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.
Abbas’ advisor and Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein glorified terrorist Mutaz Hijazi on his Facebook page:

“My message to the heroic Martyr (Shahid) Mutaz Hijazi, the Martyr of Dawn, the Martyr of Jerusalem: I have met with your father on your behalf but was not able to meet with your mother in order to kiss her hands and her forehead for feeding you courage and bravery from her breast, making you the revolutionary who has shortened our path to freedom. Mutaz, Allah has honored you with Martyrdom (Shahada), for which all men yearn. Your bullets were a beacon [illuminating] a path that had become dark, the light of which will continue to shine for years to come. Rest in peace, for you have conveyed the message, that this is the shortest way to the freedom of nations. Your life has been the essence of the Palestinian people’s long experience of suffering, for you were a revolutionary, thereafter a prisoner, and finally a Martyr (Shahid).”
