Fatah ‘prays for the souls’ of murderers of Israeli baby, calls them ‘heroes of the homeland’

Palestinian Authority ruling faction praises the murderer of a baby and shooter of seven Israelis, and Barkan shooter who murdered two, stating, “the heroic Martyrs [Shahids] of the homeland are sketching the map of the homeland with their pure blood, so that Palestine will live free and Arab. Eternity and glory to you.”

Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah movement “prays for the soul” of the baby’s murderer, according to a report shared with JNS on Thursday.

The four-day old Israel baby, who was delivered prematurely while his mother was in critical condition after being shot in a terror attack last week, died yesterday. Just prior to the funeral, the baby was given the name Amiad Yisrael, meaning “Israel our eternal nation.”

Two terrorists with blood on their hands were killed on Wednesday when Israeli forces tried to arrest them. One of the killers was Saleh Omar Saleh Barghouti, who shot seven Israelis standing at the bus stop, including the baby’s mother and father, Shira and Amichai Ish-Ran. The other was Ashraf Walid Suleiman Na’alwa, who in October shot and killed two of his Israeli coworkers at the Barkan Industrial Park where they all worked.

Hamas’s military wing, the Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades, claimed responsibility for both attacks.

Fatah honors these two murderers as “heroes of the homeland” in several posts on Facebook. Fatah wished the murderers “eternity and glory,” praised their “pure blood” and “pure soul,” and described the “scent of musk of the martyr.” Abbas’s movement stressed the fact that these two murderers were “killed for their Lord and their land.”

Afterwards, he fell to the ground, and his blood began to scatter in every direction. The winds put an end to this, until his blood was gathered under his body like a person born no more than three seconds ago. They [the winds] spread a scent at the place, which they say is similar to the scent of musk. And it is not surprising, for on that ground is a Martyr who was killed for his Lord and his land. His pure soul went out to the Lord of Heaven and earth in order to enjoy the pleasures of the world to come, where there is no occupation, tyranny, or murder. Even the bullet that entered his body did not want to leave him. It settled into his warm veins and must remain with him forever. These are the Martyrs of Palestine. They live today with their Lord. And do not say about those who are killed in the way of Allah, ‘They are dead.’ Rather, they are alive, but you perceive [it] not.” [Koran, Sura 2:154, Sahih International translation].

This post is a clear example of the Shahada [martyrdom, or death for Allah], which is being actively promoted by the Palestinian Authority and Fatah to the Palestinian population.

We will continue to stand firm in the existential battle on our Palestinian land. We will not leave, we are staying here.

And while Fatah is “praying for the souls” of these murderers, it expects them to unite “in Paradise, the meeting place.”

Ofra shooting attack: Palestinian terrorists shot and wounded seven Israelis—a pregnant woman, her husband, another man, and 4 teenagers – in a drive-by shooting attack next to Ofra, north of Jerusalem, on Dec. 9, 2018. The pregnant woman was severely wounded and doctors had to deliver her baby prematurely before operating on her. The baby died three days later. The terrorists fled the scene but were located three days later. One terrorist, Saleh Omar Saleh Barghouti, was shot and killed by the Israeli army during the attempt to apprehend him, while other terrorists were taken into custody.

Na’alwa fled the scene, but was located two months later in Nablus and shot and killed in a shootout when the Israeli army and police tried to apprehend him on Dec. 13, 2018. Until this attack, the Barkan Industrial Zone had been an example of coexistence with Israelis and Palestinians working together.
