The flag of the Fatah movement

Tuesday, 31 March 2020 | In what was probably the largest gathering this week anywhere in the world, since self-isolation is the key to defeating the coronavirus, [Palestinian Authority President] Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah movement organized a celebration with “thousands” of Palestinians crammed together to honor a terrorist released from prison.

Fatah’s message to its own people is that honoring a terrorist involved in the murder of six Israelis takes priority over their own health.

Pictures of the massive crowds were posted on Fatah’s official Facebook page.

Even the Palestinian Authority [PA] criticized the event. Ironically, the Palestinian Authority—also headed by Mahmoud Abbas—used this opportunity to praise terrorist prisoners as ideal law-abiding citizens, saying “Our heroic prisoners are the first to carefully implement the law.” Palestinian Media Watch has exposed that the PA tells their people that killing Israelis is protected behavior under international law.

Safa, an independent Palestinian news agency, likewise criticized the event.
