Facebook Page Glorifies Terrorists - Fatah Finds New Outlet To Promote Terror

By  

Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik, writing at Palestinian Media Watch, report that the Palestinian organization, Fatah, is using its official Facebook page to glorify terrorists.

Most of the writing and comments on the page are in arabic, bust westerners can read many of the posts and comments, thanks to Microsoft's Bing translator. The translations aren't perfect, but they seem reasonably good.

Marcus and Zilberdik report that "Fatah's page currently displays a poster with the pictures of 8 terrorists who carried out a terror attack on the Savoy Hotel in Tel Aviv in 1975." The graphic illustration was posted by the Fatah administrator.

In that terror attack, 8 Israeli civilians and 3 soldiers were killed.

According to the writers, the text on the poster reads: "The Tel Aviv operation, March 6, 1975 The Palestinian passage to the homeland"

Under the photo of each terrorist, the text reads: "The heroic Shahid (Martyr)" followed by the terrorist's name. (Accessed Feb. 6, 2012

Already, there are Israeli responses to some of the facebook posts, including an exchange about the book, which I couldn't translate. In English the comments said "Since when does an attack on unarmed civilians become a ticket to heroism?" and "the biggest lie ever in the world is your wish for "peace" ..."

Marcus and Zilberdik say the opening of Fatah's official Facebook page was reported in the official PA daily: "Fatah launches its official Facebook page... http://www.facebook.com/fateh.1.1.1965 " [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 1, 2012]

As with almost all Palestinian posters depicting that area of the middle east, the poster on Fatah's Facebook page also shows no trace of Israel. Their concept of "Palestine" contains all PA areas, and all of Israel.
