Everyone here is witness to your benevolence, and at this opportunity we stand as a sign of loyalty to those who have experienced difficult trials, trusted in Allah, and gone to defend their honor with great will power. They are the ones who were witness to the occupation's crimes, and many of them were executed in cold blood, and the occupation still continues to perpetrate its crimes on our land and to wreak havoc...'
Al-Aloul noted that the Palestinian people has been taught that this land is holy, and that the symbol Yasser Arafat died as a Martyr, defending Jerusalem, and for that they acted. They are the pride of this nation, and they have brought glory to the Arab and Islamic nation...

He added: 'No aggression will undermine our stability and vigor, and our determination is firm, and no one can budge it. Palestine's chronicles are being written by thousands of sacrifices of Martyrs, prisoners, children, women, young men and women,' and he said to the Martyrs' relatives: 'You will continue to be an example for the Palestinian people.'...

Jerusalem line 78 bus terror attack - On Oct. 13, 2015, two Palestinian terrorists, Baha Alyan (22) and Bilal Ghanem (23) boarded a bus in Jerusalem's Armon Hanatziv neighborhood with a gun and a knife and attacked passengers, killing Israelis Haviv Haim (78) and Alon Govberg (51), and Richard Lakin (76), and wounding 3 Israelis. Alyan was shot and killed by an Israeli security guard at the scene and Ghanem, a Hamas terrorist who served time in Israeli prison in 2013-2014, was wounded.

Muhannad Halabi - 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who 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 security forces. 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."

Pisgat Ze'ev stabbing attack - On Oct. 12, 2015, two Palestinian terrorists, Hassan Manasrah (15) and Ahmad Manasrah (13), stabbed Yossef Ben Shalom (21) in the Pisgat Ze'ev neighborhood of East Jerusalem, and then repeatedly stabbed Naor Ben Ezra (13) who was riding his bike. Hassan Manasrah was killed while fleeing the scene, and Ahmad Manasrah was shot by Israeli police and hospitalized. Both victims of the attack were seriously injured. The terrorists, who were cousins, came from the nearby Palestinian neighborhood of Beit Hanina.
