Mahmoud Abbas has gone out of his way to honor Maryam Farhat, known as Umm Nidal, the mother of three "martyrs."
Farhat is the Hamas lawmaker and mother of terrorists who justified killing Israeli civilians and enthusiastically celebrated her son's death after he killed several Jewish pre-army students.
Abbas opened a "tent of condolences" for Farhat at his headquarters in the Muqata in Ramallah.
Not only that, but he gave her a high Palestinian Authority posthumous honor, the "Order of Sacrifice."
Abbas is showering honor on Farhat on the eve of being visited by President Obama.
Yesterday I showed a video of Farhat which made even the Arab interviewer cringe with her naked support of terror.
Here's a video of her with her son who is about to murder Israeli civilians. She talks about her happiness at her son's forthcoming murder spree and expected death:
This sick creature is considered a hero worthy of the greatest honor by Israel's supposedly "moderate" peace partner.
Will President Obama address this issue when he meets Abbas in Ramallah? Will he even pass by the mourning tent on his way to the meeting? That would be a photograph that would haunt him.
If he has any sense of morality at all, if the tent is there Obama should turn around and nix the meeting.
This is a prime example of how the Palestinian Arab leadership supports and glorifies terror, and sweeping it under the rug is exactly the wrong approach. It is their despicable embrace of the most disgusting terrorists and their actions that is the real "obstacle to peace" and here we can see it as explicitly as possible.
Incidentally, this shows how Palestinian Arab "unity" would work - Fatah would go towards Hamas' positions, not the other way around, as here is a prominent Hamas member that Fatah and Abbas is happy to publicly embrace.
