TEL AVIV – A Palestinian university got into the Christmas spirit by decorating a tree with photos of terrorists, Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reported.
The Fatah student’s movement at Birzeit University near Ramallah erected a Christmas tree adorned with pictures of “martyrs” – among them the terrorist Muhammad Halabi who recently stabbed and killed two Israelis in Jerusalem.
The image of Halabi hangs alongside other pictures of terrorist leaders that the students seem to believe are conducive to the seasonal sentiment of goodwill and benevolence. Included are the founder of Hamas, Ahmed Yassin; the founder of Islamic Jihad, Fathi Shaqaqi; and Secretary-General of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), Abu Ali Mustafa.
Between them they are responsible for the deaths of scores of Israelis in more than 1,000 terror attacks.
At the top of the tree is a picture of former PA president and Fatah chairman Yasser Arafat, who encouraged hundreds of Palestinian men and women to inflict terror attacks against Israelis.
The Fatah movement, led by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, posted pictures of the tree and members of its student movement on its official Facebook page. Behind the group of Fatah students is a sign with the text:
“The way to freedom is a bullet and a Martyr, a pen and a prisoner, an olive tree and a wounded, a crescent and a cross. Merry Christmas [Fatah] Shabiba student movement, Birzeit University.”
At the onset of the Christmas season Breibart Jerusalem reported on a similar tree at another Palestinian university that displayed images of terrorists.
These jihadi Christmas trees are in keeping with the PA and Fatah’s policy of glorifying murderers. Halabi, the terrorist who kicked off the latest wave of violence by stabbing two Israeli men who were walking with their families in Jerusalem, has had a monument erected in his name and a road named after him. The Fatah movement also arranged to have holy soil from the Al-Aqsa mosque put in his grave.
