Surprise: Abbas is Two-Faced

The ostensibly "moderate" Mahmoud Abbas/Abu Mazen not only has two names, but also clearly has two faces and two jobs.

He may try to show a civilized side to the West, but as the leader of the Palestinian Authority (Ramallah) he continues to incite his people against Israel and as leader of the terror group Fatah he effectively presides over attacks, such as the fatal terror attack in Dimona.

(Fatah, Hamas and various other terror groups continue to fight for "credit" in that dastardly attack; regardless of which group led the attack or whether they all cooperated, as long as they all try to claim "credit" it's reasonable to hold them all guilty.)

This article from The Jerusalem Post based on reports by Palestinian Media Watch again reveals Abu Mazen's perfidy.

PA glorifies Dimona terrorists

The terrorists who perpetrated Monday's suicide bombing in Dimona were glorified in three newspapers controlled by the Palestinian Authority, including the official Al-Hayat al-Jadida which is controlled by PA President Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian Media Watch reported Wednesday.

"The perpetrators of the operation died as shahids ... an Israeli was killed and eleven were wounded in the Dimona operation," Al-Hayat al-Jadida reported on February 5.

The Palestinian dailies Al-Iyam and Al-Quds also defined the bombers as glorious martyrs, or shahids.

The Palestinian media's description of the terrorists as shahids, granting them Islam's highest honor, clearly contradicts Abbas's condemnation of the terror attack.

According to Islam, a shahid is a person who dies a "holy death" for allah and is conceived as a hero and role model in Palestinian society, specifically for Palestinian youths.

Also described as shahids in the Palestinian media were two Palestinians who attempted to murder Israelis in Kfar Etzyon's Makor Haim High School several weeks ago.

Although terrorists have always been defined as shahids in Palestinian society, the latest report is particularly disturbing since it demonstrates that while Israel and the PA are attempting to renew peace negotiations, the PA is continuing to honor terrorists.
