After IDF soldiers last Friday demolished a memorial in Jenin erected in honor of Palestinian terrorist Khalid Nazzal, Palestinian Authority (PA) activists built a new memorial stone at the same site the next day and constructed a second memorial for Nazzal in Ramallah.

Nazzal, a leader of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine terrorist group, was behind a 1974 terror attack in the Israeli town of Ma’alot that killed 22 children and three adults—one of the deadliest terror attacks in Israel’s history.

Nazzal was killed in 1986 in what Palestinians claim was a revenge killing initiated by Israel.

The initial memorial for Nazzal was erected last month by the PA, which also named a public square after the terrorist. Palestinian Media Watch, an organization that monitors Palestinian incitement, reported that Jenin Deputy Mayor Mahmoud Abu Mwais said at the memorial’s unveiling, “Our leadership and our people will continue on the path of the martyrs.”

PA activists said they restored the demolished memorial and built the second memorial “as a challenge to Israeli authorities.”

    Hundreds of Gaza’s children were killed when Israel bombed Gaza about 10 years ago with air delivered bombs as well as indirect artillery and direct tank fire.

      Can you point out where Israel has built a monument or named a square to commemorate what were Arab deaths regrettably sustained in a war between Israel and Hamas resulting from Hamas indiscriminately firing thousands of missiles into Israeli population centers and not letting Gaza’s citizens vacate their homes to seek safety elsewhere despite being warned by Israel to do so.

      Your inability to understand the difference between the cold blooded and deliberate slaughter of 22 Jewish children and three adults in Maalot and the unfortunate loss of life in Gaza smacks of a person who takes every opportunity to denigrate Israel as it stuggles to deal with an enemy that is sworn to wipe it off the map and murder as many of Israel’s citizens in the process.

      Your attempt to equate Maalot and Gaza is disgusting.

    The Palestinian Authority – created under the Oslo Accords – was buried on 3 January 2013 by decree of Mahmoud Abbas.

    Why this organisation still gets media cover as though it is alive and kicking in 2017 is beyond my comprehension. It is fake news pure and simple.

    Glorifying the memory of a murderer of Jewish children is one reason why dealing with the PLO and its leader Mahmoud Abbas- who bears the responsibility for wanting to commemorate these murders for posterity – is obscene and abhorrent.

    President Trump seems to be coming to this conclusion as well.
