Today, the bi-weekly paper The Capital City, which is distributed with the official Palestinian Authority daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, featured a cartoon portraying Rabbi Yehuda Glick as a snake. Terrorist Mutaz Hijazi, who attempted to murder Rabbi Glick on Oct. 29, 2014, is seen trying to strangle Rabbi Glick while saying: "You make me mad!" [The Capital City, bi-weekly distributed with official PA daily, Nov. 13, 2014]


The Capital City lists as its "general supervisor" Othman Abu Gharbieh, who is a member of Fatah's Central Committee and the Secretary General of the Popular National Conference of Jerusalem, the PLO institution that publishes this bi-weekly.


The front page of the bi-weekly also honors terrorists. Under the headline "Jerusalem will speak only Arabic" are pictures of two terrorists: Mutaz Hijazi who shot Rabbi Glick and Ibrahim Al-Akari, who killed two and injured more than 13 Israelis in Jerusalem.  


PA Chairman Abbas has glorified Glick's attacker, as reported by Palestinian Media Watch. In a condolence letter, Abbas wrote that the terrorist "rose to Heaven while defending our people's rights and holy places." Abbas' advisor similarly praised the terrorist, stating that his "bullets were a beacon." Abbas' Fatah movement also celebrated the attack on Rabbi Glick.


Mutaz Hijazi - Islamic Jihad member and released prisoner who attempted to assassinate Rabbi Yehuda Glick, a prominent activist working to assure rights for Jews to visit and pray on the Temple Mount, on Oct. 29, 2014. The assassination attempt took place following a conference on establishing times and places for Jews to pray on the Temple Mount. Glick was seriously wounded in the attack; Hijazi was killed soon afterwards when he opened fire on an Israeli police force that was attempting to arrest him.

Ibrahim Al-Akari - Hamas terrorist from East Jerusalem who deliberately ran over people at a light-rail station in Jerusalem on Nov. 5, 2014, killing Jidan Assad, 38, and Shalom Aharon Badani, 17, and injuring at least 13 others. Al-Akari was shot and killed by Israeli police officers who arrived on the scene.
