Fatah official: US is "leader of imperialism and international terror"

Video and text posted on the official Facebook page of the Fatah Movement on Nov. 26, 2015
Video shows Fatah Central Committee member Jamal Muhaisen speaking at funeral of the 16-year-old Palestinian Ibrahim Daoud, who died of his wounds.

Text under video: "The Fatah movement's message, from the mouth of Fatah Central Committee member Jamal Muhaisen, in response to the US and [John] Kerry's standpoints. This is during the funeral of Martyr (Shahid) Ibrahim Daoud, Fatah member in Deir Ghasana (i.e., a village north-west of Ramallah)."
Fatah Central Committee member Jamal Muhaisen in video: "Our national unity (i.e., between Fatah and Hamas) is the basis for dealing with the criminal plots being carried out by that racist criminal Zionist entity's government, and with the blind support it receives from the American regime, which insists on remaining the leader of imperialism and international terror, while describing the Palestinian people's struggle for liberty and independence as terror. This, while granting the occupier, that Nazi criminal, a certificate that its crimes against the Palestinian people are self-defense. However, I say to this Nazi occupier, and to the leader of terror, the US: 'We do not expect a certificate of good behavior from you, but rather Shahada (play on words: In Arabic Shahada means both “Martyrdom” - death for Allah - and “certificate” –Ed.) that we receive from Allah, who chooses Martyrs from among us, who are more honorable than all of us.'"

Ibrahim Daoud – 16-year-old Palestinian who according to WAFA, the official PA news agency, died of his wounds after being hit by gunfire from Israeli soldiers. PMW has not been able to verify the circumstances of his being wounded and his death.
