Philadelphia Councilwoman honors Laila Ghannam, who has consistently glorified terrorists
Headline: "Ghannam: We will ring the bells of our nation's liberty from the heart of Jerusalem, and will not despair."
"District Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh Laila Ghannam emphasized that our nation would ring the bells of its liberty and the achievement of its rights from the heart of Jerusalem, the capital of its independent and fully sovereign state... [Ghannam] made these statements while receiving the Liberty Bell from [Philadelphia] City Council member Maria Sanchez in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, [USA] yesterday [Jan. 30, 2015]. This bell, which symbolizes Philadelphia's independence day, means a lot to its citizens. In addition, Ghannam received a Citation of Honor, which has never been awarded to any Arab leader or citizen before, in recognition of her impact and her extraordinary actions for her nation and her cause, and her influence within her society and in the world... [Ghannam] made it clear that the land of Palestine was the cradle of love and peace, noting that Jesus was Palestinian, and that tolerance is one of the Palestinians' most prominent principles."
Ghannam gave the parliamentary representative [City Councilwoman Maria Sanchez] a memento from the Palestinian heritage, and noted that this is our heritage, identity and the legacy of our ancestors. She also noted that the occupation (i.e., PA euphemism for Israel) was trying to steal it by using it in Israeli fashion shows and for the uniforms of the Israeli airline attendants. Ghannam clarified that stealing is their [the Israelis'] conduct, as they have stolen the land, and are now trying to rob all that is Palestinian, without anything to stop their savagery, criminality and unrestrained terrorism."
Councilwoman Sanchez posted photos on Facebook of herself with Ghannam receiving the award, and tweeted the following statement: "I was honored to welcome the first woman Governor of the city of Ramallah, #Palestine, to Philadelphia Dr. Leila Ghannam. Women making moves." [Jan. 30, 2015]
