Hey, look what I found!
Pretty cool, huh? Somewhere, Mahmoud Abbas is spewing Folgers through his nose.
During the week of the anniversary of the death of PLO arch-terrorist Abu Jihad, the Palestinian Authority held events and broadcast TV programs celebrating him and his terror attacks. One of the striking components of the Abu Jihad festivities was the presentation of the 125 Israeli civilians and soldiers killed in terror attacks he planned and directed, as a positive achievement. Six sporting events were also held in his honor.
“Abu Jihad was killed by the Israeli Mossad in Tunisia on April 16, 1988… and was crowned the Prince of the Martyrs of Palestine… Among the military operations planned by Abu Jihad: the explosion at the Zohar reservoir in 1955; the operation to blow up the Israeli National Water Carrier in 1965; the operation at the Savoy Hotel in Tel Aviv, which killed 10 Israelis, in 1975; the blowing up of a truck bomb in Jerusalem in 1975; the killing of Albert Levi, the senior sapper, and his assistant, in Nablus in 1976; the Dalal Mughrabi operation (i.e., bus hijacking), in which more than 37 Israelis were killed, in 1978; the shelling of the Eilat Port in 1979; the Katyusha fire on the northern settlements [in Israel] in 1981…” (See full listing below).
“The anniversary of the Martyrdom-death of our people’s legendary leader, Khalil Al-Wazir, Abu Jihad, is approaching, and in its honor the sports organizations in Palestine are organizing many tournaments in diverse branches of sports… the knights of the Ansar Al-Quds club have commemorated this anniversary every year, and continue to do so. This year they will be holding their 18th tournament.”
First of all, how bad-ass a nom de guerre is Abu Jihad? The name’s Jihad, Abu Jihad. But it should be a rank, like five star general, not a name. You should start off as Abu Stone Thrower (private first class), then graduate to Abu Molotov cocktail (corporal), Abu Bulldozer (sergeant), Abu Ambulance (lieutenant) Abu Baby Carriage (captain), Abu Mortar (major), Abu Qassam (colonel), and so on up to Abu Jihad.
They even named a museum after him! How cool is that? Only, instead of priceless Impressionists or crucifixes in urine, you have thoughtful and provocative exhibits like this:
That’s either a birthday cake for Hugo Chavez or a blue plate special at the Burrito Palace.
But did you notice who one of Jihad’s proteges was? Dalal Mughrabi. I like to think of our humble corner of the Web as the online Dalal Mughrabi Museum, which has only one piece, though it’s a masterpiece:
Israel’s parters in peace.
A bus filled with children ages 3 to 13 was suddenly pelted with rocks and concrete cinder blocks hurled by Arab teens in Jerusalem’s mixed Jewish-Arab neighborhood of Abu Tur.
Rivka and Eilat, two eighthgrade students living in the area who were on the bus at the time, told Arutz Sheva about the experience.
The incident started when the bus reached Naomi Street. Large rocks began flying at the bus, cracking the windows and breaking the front door completely.
“There was great fear in the bus,” they added. “Children were shaking and crying. There were some who were 3 years old, children who were not used to rock throwing,” they said. “But there were no bombs, thank G-d.”
Rivka and Eilat are certain this event will not stop them from traveling in the area. “We are not afraid,” they said. “It is important to keep traveling, and for them to know we are not afraid of them. We must be here.”
“Children not used to rock throwing”. What a sad, sad comment.
