The Palestinian Authority gave this day of mourning a stamp of approval by reporting it on the official Wafa website, saying that the terrorist was being mourned along with all of the other "martyrs of Jerusalem."
The article in Wafa called the victims "soldiers."
Mahmoud Abbas is considered a peacemaker. No reporters, as far as I know, has ever asked him about his heading a terrorist group and an organization that openly celebrates the murder of Jews.
This is outrageous - and perhaps even more outrageous is how the world ignores this.
