Not only Palestinian children compete in championships named after terrorists, so do their teachers.
The Qalqilya Directorate of Education, which is a branch of the Palestinian Authority Ministry of Education, recently held the “Martyr Abd Al-Jaber Abd Al-Qader Khaled Volleyball Championship for Teachers,” named after a Palestinian terrorist and member of Fatah’s military wing, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades. Together with an accomplice, Khaled attempted to carry out a combined shooting and suicide bombing attack at an Israeli army training camp in 2002. (See below)
The championship was sponsored by Abbas’s Fatah movement and the Jayyous Municipality in the Qalqilya district.
Palestinian Media Watch has exposed the P.A.’s policy of indoctrinating Palestinian kids to view terrorist murderers as heroes and role models. The P.A. has named 31 schools after terrorists, and sports tournaments are frequently named after terrorists as well. In November 2015, a school football tournament for young kids was named after 13-year-old terrorist Ahmad Manasrah, who a month earlier during a Palestinian wave of terror attacks stabbed a 13-year-old Israeli boy and an adult, injuring both seriously.
The Ahmad Manasrah Football Tournament named after the young stabber showed Palestinian kids of the same age that murdering or wounding Israelis makes you a hero to the extent that tournaments will be named after you. In this way, the P.A. creates an incentive for young Palestinians to become murderers and use violence.
The following is the report on the championship honoring the terrorist:
[Official P.A. daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 12, 2018]
Abd Al-Jaber Abd Al-Qader Khaled: Palestinian terrorist and member of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (Fatah’s military wing) who, together with terrorist Muhammad Hamoudah, attempted to carry out a combined shooting and suicide bombing attack at an Israeli army training camp, Camp Dotan, near Hadera on Feb. 17, 2002. Khaled and Hamoudah raised the suspicions of the Israeli police while driving to the camp, and Khaled opened fire on the police and was killed in the resulting gunfight. During his attempted escape, Hamoudah detonated a bomb in his car, killing himself and wounding 3 police officers.
