PLO celebrates arch-terrorist: “Abu Jihad died a Martyrdom-death… [he] carried ‎the pride of the Palestinian people”‎

Headline: “The National Committee ‎marked the anniversary of Abu Jihad’s ‎Martyrdom-death”‎
‎“The Palestinian National Council (the ‎legislative body of the PLO) marked the ‎‎27th anniversary of the Martyrdom-death of ‎Khalil Al-Wazir ‘Abu Jihad,’ one of our ‎nation’s most prominent historical leaders, ‎in appreciation of the sacrifice he made ‎for the revolution and the Palestinian ‎cause.‎ In an announcement to the press today, ‎Wednesday [April 15, 2015] the Council ‎said that ‘Abu Jihad died a Martyrdom-‎death as a commander and a fighter who ‎carries the pride of the Palestinian people. ‎At this time, we are in dire need to adhere ‎to the principles of the school of the ‎revolution, which was established by ‎Martyr Abu Jihad within the souls of the ‎rebels, and is based on loyalty, purity, ‎revolutionary vigor, dedication and the ‎sacrificing of life for the cause.’”‎

Note: Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir) was a founder ‎of Fatah and deputy to Yasser Arafat. He ‎headed the PLO terror organization's ‎military wing and planned many deadly ‎Fatah terror attacks. These attacks, which ‎killed a total of 125 Israelis, included the ‎most lethal in Israeli history - the hijacking ‎of a bus and killing of 37 civilians, 12 of ‎them children.‎
