While Mahmoud Abbas issued his fake "condemnation" of the slaughter of Jewish worshipers this morning, the political party he leads embraced the terror attack.
The official Fatah website called this a "heroic operation" and its officials praised the attack.
Central Committee of Fatah member Tawfiq Tirawi said "I consider the Jerusalem operation to be a natural response to the occupation and the crimes of the settlers."
Abbas Zaki said that Yasser Arafat was right when he said that the biggest leaders belong to the people, meaning that terrorists are more leaders than anyone.
Official spokesman for Fatah Ahmed Assaf said that "the Jerusalem operation was a natural response to the Israeli violations."
Fatah's Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades called all of the victims "soldiers" and issued a statement in support of the attack calling for more "revenge" attacks.
This is besides the praise for the attack across the board from other Palestinian Arab terror groups. But it shows that there is really total support for murdering Jews among all factions of Israel's "peace partner."
All this is evident from scenes of celebration from Palestinian Arabs in support of the terror attack. Sweets were handed out and young Arab men posed with axes in joy that Jews were murdered
Do any of these celebrants look like they interpreted Abbas' "condemnation" as anything but a joke?
