Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas recently appointed his longtime adviser, Muhammad Ishtayeh, to the position of prime minister of the Palestinian Authority.

In 2010, MEMRI TV released a clip of Ishtayeh’s interview on July 9 of that year with Hezbollah’s Al-Manar TV; in that interview, Ishtayeh said of Abu Daoud, the mastermind of the 1972 Munich Summer Olympics massacre of 11 Israeli athletes and coaches, that “the martyr Abu Daoud continues the convoy of martyrs who fell for the sake of Palestine. We all follow this path.”

“The martyr Abu Daoud continues the convoy of martyrs who fell for the sake of Palestine; we all follow this path”

Muhammad Ishtayeh: “The martyr Abu Daoud continues the convoy of martyrs who fell for the sake of Palestine. We all follow this path. As for the claim that history can be rewritten in a different way, I think it is unjust to say that Palestinian history can be written in a different ink.”

“The ink in which Palestinian history has been written is red, and I believe that it will continue to be written in red ink”

“The ink in which the Palestinian history has been written is red, and I believe that it will continue to be written in red ink. In addition, the martyr Abu Daoud was officially eulogized by the Fatah movement and the Palestinian establishment.”
