Fatah glorifies PA Police officer-turned-terrorist: “Heroic Martyr”

Fatah vows to “remain loyal to [the] pure blood” of murderer of 2

Emphasizing his position with the Palestinian Authority Police, Mahmoud
Abbas’ Fatah Movement glorified the perpetrator of yesterday’s terror attack
as a “heroic Martyr” and “the Martyr police officer”. Terrorist Muhammad
Turkeman shot and wounded 3 Israeli soldiers.

In two posts on Facebook, Fatah specifically stressed that terrorist
Turkeman was an “officer in the [PA] Palestinian police special forces”,
using several hashtags to underscore this point:

“#The_Martyr_police_officer

#Palestinian_Authority_[Security_]Forces_member”

“#The_police_officer_Martyr

[Official Fatah Facebook page, Oct. 31, 2016]

Fatah included photos of terrorist Turkeman in posts that praised him for
carrying out the “shooting operation”. In one he poses with an assault
rifle, and in another he is shown wearing his PA Police uniform with a
Kalashnikov assault rifle next to him.

A picture of the Al-Aqsa Mosque appeared together with photos of the
terrorist in one of the posts. This connects the terrorist and his attack to
the “defense and protection” of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, perpetuating the
Palestinian Authority’s libel that the Al-Aqsa Mosque is in danger from an
Israeli attack. Palestinian Media Watch has documented that the PA and Fatah
use this libel to encourage Palestinians to commit terror attacks against
Israelis in order to “defend and protect” the mosque.

The same symbols were used in a cartoon on Fatah’s website that showed a
hand waving a machine gun from the top of the Dome of the Rock and a pool of
blood on the ground. The cartoon celebrated the shooting spree of a
Palestinian terrorist who had killed 2 Israelis and injured 6 the day
before. Fatah was likewise quick to honor the murderer.

Fatah continuously uses its Facebook page to honor and glorify terrorist
murderers. A few days ago, Abbas’ movement vowed to “remain loyal” to “the
pure blood” of terrorist Firas Al-Jaber “Abu Ghadab”, who participated in
the murder of 2 Israelis in 2001:

Posted text: “The anniversary of the death as a Martyr (Shahid) of Commander
Firas Al-Jaber Oct. 27, 2016… Today we in Fatah, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’
Brigades, … bow our heads in honor and admiration of the soul of the
Martyr, the outstanding commander, Firas Al-Jaber, even as we renew the oath
to his pure soul that we will remain loyal to his pure blood which watered
the beloved land of Palestine, and emphasize that we will continue forward
on his path of struggle until the liberation of the last bit our occupied
land.”

The following are the two Fatah Facebook posts glorifying the terrorist
police officer and the post vowing to follow the path of a murderer:

Tulkarem – exclusive – the Fatah Movement in the Tulkarem refugee camp

Today, Oct. 27, is the anniversary of the death as a Martyr of Commander
Firas Al-Jaber ‘Abu Ghadab,’ who ascended to Heaven as a Martyr after he
fell victim to a Zionist assassination operation on this day.

Firas Al-Jaber was one of the outstanding founding commanders of the Al-Aqsa
Martyrs’ Brigades (i.e., Fatah’s military wing) in Palestine and of the
brigades of Martyr Dr. Thabet Thabet in the city of Tulkarem…

Today we in Fatah, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, and the brigades of Martyr
Dr. Thabet Thabet in the Tulkarem district bow our heads in honor and
admiration of the soul of the Martyr, the outstanding commander, Firas
Al-Jaber, even as we renew the oath to his pure soul that we will remain
loyal to his pure blood which watered the beloved land of Palestine, and
emphasize that we will continue forward on his path of struggle until the
liberation of the last bit our occupied land.”
