PA District Governor of Ramallah at funeral for terrorist asks Allah to “have mercy on all of Palestine’s Martyrs, who are more honorable than all of us together”

Headline: “Ghannam demanded that the US stop the crime of double standards”
      “District Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh Laila Ghannam participated in the funeral of Muhammad Sha’alan, who died as a Martyr (Shahid) after he was shot in cold blood by the occupation forces at the northern entrance to El-Bireh. A group of citizens gathered in front of the Palestine [medical] compound, and carried the Martyr on their shoulders to an impressive military funeral, before Dr. Ghannam laid a wreath on his pure body and recited the [Quranic Sura] Al-Fatiha for his soul.
Ghannam stated that Martyr Sha’alan, a Palestinian-American citizen, was targeted in cold blood by the occupation, and that we haven’t heard any statement condemning this crime from the country that presumes to be an oasis of democracy and human rights. She noted that the US should stop the crime of double standards, that the one paying its price is our people, armed with only its will power. Likewise, she demanded to protect this people from the last occupation known to mankind, and asked Allah to have mercy on all of Palestine’s Martyrs, who are more honorable than all of us together, and to grant patience to their families and relatives.
Ghannam wondered what the world is waiting for before it stops this aggression of the occupation against our unarmed people, and noted that the world becomes agitated when an occupier who stole our land is killed, but we cannot find a [listening] ear when we call to help our people and stop the undeterred, uninhibited killing of those who have the right [to the land].”
