The article below is from Palestinian Media Watch (PMW). It details how Mahmoud Abbas, the leader of the so-called moderate PA, endorses terror by honoring mass murderers. In this case, the murderer was one of the senior planners of the Munich Olympics Massacre. Imagine an American heading up a conference dedicated to the memory and honor of, say, Timothy McVeigh. And you wondered why the “peace process” seems stuck in molasses. You might question why I’d present something like this in my humor blog. I guess it’s to point out that, as long as the Palestinians have leaders like this, the peace process is a joke.
Here’s the article:
Fatah again honors planner of
Munich Olympics massacre

Poster at the Fifth Sitting of Fatah’s Revolutionary Council, Ramallah Sitting named in honor of “The Shahid (Martyr) commander Amin Al-Hindi”
Palestinian Terrorist Amin Al-Hindi was one of the senior planners of the murders of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics in 1972. This week’s Fifth Sitting of the Fatah Revolutionary Council headed by Mahmoud Abbas was named in his honor.
The picture of the meeting shows Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas sitting in the center of the table and the text on the banner behind him reads:
“Palestinian National Liberation Movement – Fatah
Fifth Sitting of the Revolutionary Council
Shahid (Martyr) Commander Amin Al-Hindi Sitting
November 24-25, 2010
Ramallah – Palestine”

Earlier this year the official PA daily described his participation in the Olympic massacre, saying he was “one of the stars who sparkled… at the sports stadium in Munich.” The attack itself was referred to as “just one of many shining stations” in his life. [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 20, 2010]
Palestinian Media Watch has reported that the Palestinian Authority already honored Al Hindi after he died earlier this year.
