Abbas’ advisor honors terrorist stabber who killed 2, calling the attack “heroic”

Image and text posted on Facebook page of Advisor to PA Chairman Abbas on NGOs and Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein, reposted from website of Lebanese Fatah's Information and Culture Commission:

“Page in honor of Jerusalem and saluting those within it
The lions of Allah in Jerusalem are protecting it
Kiss their foreheads, and do not forget their hands”

“Picture of the Martyr (Shahid) Muhannad Halabi, 19 years old, resident of El-Bireh in the Ramallah district, who carried out the stabbing and shooting operation (i.e., terror attack) against settlers in occupied Jerusalem, which led to the death of two settlers and serious injury of additional settlers this evening [Oct. 3, 2015].
The last thing the Martyr wrote on his Facebook page, 21 hours before he carried out his heroic operation was: ‘According to what I see, the third Intifada (i.e., Palestinian wave of violence and terror against Israel) has already broken out. What is happening in Jerusalem is what is happening to our holy sites and the place from where our Prophet [Muhammad] set out on his Night Journey (i.e., the Al-Aqsa Mosque), and what is happening to the women of the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is what is happening to our mothers and sisters, and I do not think the people should succumb to this humiliation.”

Muhannad Halabi - killed 2 Israelis, Rabbi Nehemiah Lavi and Aharon Bennett, and injured Bennett’s wife, Adele, and their 2-year-old son in a stabbing attack in the Old City of Jerusalem on Oct. 3, 2015. Prior to his attack, in a post to his private Facebook page, the terrorist referred to recent terror attacks as part of a "third Intifada,” and said that it was a response to Israel’s actions at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and that the Palestinian people would not “succumb to humiliation.” This is a reference to the PA libel that Israel is plotting to take over and destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to the PA's portrayal of Jews praying on the Temple Mount as "an invasion of the Al-Aqsa Mosque."
