Palestinians Reinvent Jesus in their Own Image—as a Terrorist

The PA believes Jesus was Arab and honors Him the same way they honor prominent terrorists.

Thursday, 20 January 2022 | The PA [Palestinian Authority] uses many euphemisms and terms to refer to terrorists, and they are applying two of them to Jesus [Yeshua]. The first is Fida’i, literally “self-sacrificing fighter.”

For example, terrorist Ashraf Na’alwa, who brought a rifle to work, tied up a young mother of a 15-month-old, and then murdered her and another coworker, was called by Fatah [leading secular Palestinian political party]: “The heroic Fida’i.” Fatah official Rawhi Fattouh applied this status to Jesus: “Jesus the first Palestinian Fida’i.”

The second term is Shahid—Islamic “Martyr”—the word the PA uses for every terrorist killed during his/her attack, including suicide bombers. Senior Fatah leader Tawfiq Tirawi applied both terms to Jesus: “The first Fida’i and the first Martyr, the Messiah Jesus.”

Ironically, the PA and Fatah do not intend to insult Jesus’ memory or Christian tradition by turning Jesus into a terrorist. Palestinian leaders actually believe that terrorists, murderers of Israelis and Islamic “Martyrs” are the “most honorable.”

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas praises them regularly and puts them on the highest pedestal: “We view the Martyrs and prisoners (i.e., terrorists) as stars in the sky of the Palestinian people, and they have priority in everything” [Official PA TV, July 24, 2018].

So by calling Jesus a Palestinian terrorist, the PA/Fatah actually intend to honor him.
