PA repeatedly glorifies arch-terrorist Imad Mughniyeh

Senior member of Hezbollah Imad Mughniyeh, who was linked to many major international terror attacks, was killed in a car bombing in Damascus on Feb. 12, 2008. The Palestinian Authority used its media to mourn the death of the terror leader: 
Article by Ahmad Dahbur, former Deputy Minister of Culture, and senior journalist for Fatah-controlled Al-Hayat Al-Jadida:
     “The treacherous Zionist enemy will never permit us to lessen our revenge towards it, or to stray from our confrontation against it, until it is wiped off this land, which is saturated with the blood of the Shahids (Martyrs). And what is the fall of the Knight of Lebanese Resistance, Hajj Imad Mugniyeh, if not one of the signs of the nation's Jihad - persistent and definitely unstoppable until the Zionist Project [Israel] will be defeated… From the time he joined Fatah as a youth, and until he later became a unequalled Hezbollah commander, when his name became a beacon of light shining from the Lebanese July Victory [Second Lebanon War, 2006]…It makes no difference whether the Zionist bat camouflages himself by hiding in the dark or whether the crazy hyenas take pride in the crime, because the enemy announces his criminal presence with such language that it is as if he is caught with a smoking gun. The criminal's hands are still covered in blood, giving us more reasons to intensify our hatred towards him, though we do not lack reasons for this [hatred] in the first place. This fury and hatred will rage with even further resistance [euphemism for ‘terror’] and with a blow of death... every free man partakes in Hajj Radwan's [Mugniyeh's] glory…Indeed, what consoles [us] is what we hear of the Mujahideen's [Jihad fighters'] pledge to the combatant Shahid (Martyr), that they will avenge his blood... as either victory or Istishhad [Death as a Martyr]. If there is any reason to give the enemy [Israel] advice, we advise the pack of hyenas not to rejoice, because in war - the scale tips at times to one side and at times to the other. They are treacherous and they will retreat, and the resistance will retaliate and prevail... And from Lebanon to all the Arabs - Hail the victory of the Mujahideen!"

Fatah attack dedicated to memory of "Martyr" Mughniyeh:
     "The Fatah's military wing - the Ahmoud Abu Al-Rish Martyrs Brigades - accepted responsibility yesterday for the attack on the Israeli military post... shooting two missiles... They announced that the action was dedicated to the memory of the Martyr Imad Mughniyeh."

Lawyers' Association pays respects to "Outstanding Military Commander" Mughniyeh:
     "A delegation of close to 30 lawyers from the Islamic Association of Lawyers paid a visit to the house of mourning for the outstanding military commander of the Lebanese resistance, Imad Mughniyeh, which is being overseen by the National and Islamic Forces in Gaza City. In its speech, the delegation emphasized that the murder of Mugniyeh was a crime of organized state terror, which violates all international and human conventions and rules.”
