Palestinian Security Forces Honor Arch-Terrorist Abu Jihad

(Palestinian Media Watch) Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik - One of the most celebrated heroes in the Palestinian Authority is Abu Jihad, (Khalil Al-Wazir) who organized attacks in which at least 125 Israelis were murdered. Earlier this month, PA Chairman Abbas inaugurated a university building named after him, "The Martyr Khalil Al-Wazir 'Abu Jihad' Faculty Building for Administration and Military Sciences." U.S. Envoy Jason Greenblatt responded to an earlier tribute of Abu Jihad: "Despicable glorification of violence and terrorism displayed at a Palestinian school with a painting of Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir). Palestinian students deserve to learn about respectable accomplishments of their community not this." The PA's Ministry of Foreign Affairs defended the painting: "Accusing the Palestinians of teaching 'terror' due to the hanging of a picture of Martyr, commander, and symbol Abu Jihad is ridiculous and expresses the extent of the American bias and its uselessness."
