For those of you who still believe that Fattah is the more “moderate” of the two major Arab organizations vying for the hearts and minds of the Fakestinian entity called the Palestinian Authority, take another look at these “moderates”. Picture is of stinky arafat and abu jihad. Oh, excuse me, I mean Mr.Abu “inner struggle”. KGS
NOTE: Debbie Schlussel accurately described years ago both Fatta and Hamas as Alien vs. Predator, and the description still stands, no matter what the foreign policy analysts and think tank wonks say.

The Palestinian Authority continues to use sporting events to glorify terrorists and present them as role models for children. This week, a football tournament named after terrorist Abu Jihad was sponsored by Fatah in a town near Jerusalem, while the lottery for another football tournament named after terrorist Abdallah Daoud took place in Bethlehem. In the Gaza Strip, a football tournament featured a team named after the terrorist Majed Abu Sharar.
A Fatah representative spoke at the “Shahid (Martyr) Abu Jihad tournament,” and
told the children that they should see the terrorist as a role model:
“He reminded our children that we shall follow the same path of Abu Jihad and Yasser Arafat.”
Abu Jihad headed PLO’s military wing, and was responsible for the deaths of dozens of Israeli civilians. Among other attacks, he directed the worst terror attack in Israel’s history, in which 37 were killed in a bus hijacking.
The lottery for a football tournament named after terrorist Abdallah Daoud was held in Bethlehem. Daoud was responsible for many terror attacks, and was one of the terrorists who stormed the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem in 2002, using the monks and the religious site as shields.
