PA municipality names road and erects memorial for “Martyr” terrorist who stabbed 2 to death

Headline: “Ramallah: One of the Abu Qash roads has been named after Martyr Halabi”
       “The Surda - Abu Qash municipality named a road after Martyr (Shahid) Muhannad Halabi, which leads to the Al-Basatin neighborhood where his family lives, in an official ceremony marking the passing of 40 days since his death as a Martyr. Likewise, a memorial with his name was placed in memory of the Martyr at the beginning of the road connecting to the road of Ramallah and El-Bireh, and the town of Bir Zeit, at an event at which municipality council members, the Martyr’s family, residents of the Al-Basatin, neighborhood, and many people from the district were present. During the event a number of speeches were made praising the virtues of Martyr Halabi, who died while defending Jerusalem and its free women (the murderer wrote on Facebook he wanted to defend the women carrying out Ribat [religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic] at the Al-Aqsa Mosque - Ed.), surprised the occupiers, and lay the foundation to a new phase in the Palestinian struggle to defeat the occupation.”

Terrorist Muhannad Halabi, 19, 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. Following the attack, he was shot and killed by Israeli police. 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."
