Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinians ran true to form again..glorifying murderers.

While the above is satire, this isn't:

Arutz Sheva reported:

Mahmoud Abbas's official Palestinian Authority daily newspaper has honored the terrorist who gunned down eight high school students at point blank range with the status of shahid, or holy Islamic martyr.

The official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida prominently placed a picture of the point-blank child killer on the front page, with the caption, "The Shahid Alaa Abu Dheim." In a page one article on the massacre at the Mercaz HaRav Kook yeshiva, his crime was again defined as an act of martyrdom (shahada).

Watchdog group Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) said that in publishing the article, "the PA is sending its people a straightforward message of support for the terror murders and the murderer." According to the PA's interpretation of Islam, PMW explained, a human being can achieve no higher status than that of shahid.

Now, as I remember, US law prohibits funding entities that advocate or otherwise support terrorism. Yet the Bush Administration just asked Congress for an extra $150 million of your tax dollars for these doubt to 'compensate' them for having to pay out judgments in US courts for Americans they've murdered.

Frankly, I don't know how George W. Bush and Condi Rice look themselves in the mirror. I couldn't.

Hat tip, Gateway Pundit.
