Of course, the article is only in their Arabic site.
The daring operation carried out by two Palestinians in a Jewish synagogue in Jerusalem left a big impact and it wil leave a big impact on the Palestinian scene for a period of time. It is clear that this operation comes in the context of the Zionist attacks on Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque, and the day after the hanging of the Palestinian bus driver by Jewish settlers.In case you think that Al Jazeera was trying to downplay that the terror attack was actually a violent massacre against worshipers, the illustration of the article shows one of the victims being carried out of the shul.
The operation carried symbolic importance in targeting the synagogue, in a clear message to the settlers and extremists of all varieties and types that the attack on the Arab holy sites would lead to attacks on synagogues and their holy places. Palestinians do not attack the sanctities of other religions, but they are ready to convey the message clearly to all those who abuse their sacred places. The operation also was clear in terms of courage and bravery, coming among a number of bold operations carried out by Palestinians in recent times against the Israelis, especially in the city of Jerusalem, but this operation was the most daring because it was done with primitive weapons. The media picked up that the Palestinians used the gun, but the most important weapons were knives and hatchets. It was the courage of the operation, done suddenly and without warning.
This was not terrorism, as the US and Israel and their supporters say, but it was out of self-defense, and to save the Palestinian people.
Practically none of the commenters in the Arab world's largest media outlet had anything negative to say about this article, although one said that attacking Jews in synagogue might backfire against the Palestinian Arab cause. Most people, however, praised the article.
Incidentally, this supporter of terror has been the subject of a worshipful interview in Electronic Intifada.
He is a professor at An Najah University in Nablus. He received a master's degree in political science from Kansas State University and a doctorate from the University of Missouri.
