The Fatah movement, led by Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas, has recently named a camp for high school boys after terrorist Omar Abu-Laila who murdered two Israelis in March 2019.

Abu Laila shot dead an IDF soldier and a rabbi in a terror attack in Samaria. He was killed shortly after by IDF forces.

“This is another tragic illustration of the PA and Fatah’s role modelling to youth,” the Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), which reported on the story, stated.

The camp for high school boys, which was held earlier this year, was named after Abu Laila, and a session was named after another 19-year-old who was killed when he participated in violent clashes with the IDF.

“These two 19-year-olds serve the PA and Fatah in emphasizing to the young boys at the camp that a terrorist murderer is their hero, and that it is heroic to die for ‘Palestine’,” PMW added.

The PA has named streets, parks, town squares, and education and cultural events after terrorists.

Its educational system routinely promotes the hatred of Israel and Israelis. They use cultural mediums such as school plays, sports events and summer camps for this objective.

In line with this policy, the PA has named at least 28 schools after terrorists and at least three schools after Nazi collaborators. The PA Ministry of Education is directly and solely responsible for naming schools.
