PA to Honor Terrorists


From the Jerusalem Post:

The Palestinian Authority leadership is planning to honor the remains of Palestinian suicide bombers and terrorists with full military services in Ramallah.

The IDF will deliver the bodies to representatives of the PA on Thursday, PA Minister for Prisoners Affairs, Issa Qaraqi, said.

He said that the PA would hold a "national rally" in the Mukata presidential compound in Ramallah in honor of the "martyrs." The rally will be attended by PA president Mahmoud Abbas, PLO leaders and families of the Palestinians ...

... The list also includes Abdullah Badran, a suicide bomber who killed four Israelis at Tel Aviv's Stage nightclub in 2005, Hiba Daraghmeh, the female suicide bomber who blew herself up at a mall in Afula in 2003, killing three people, Hassan Abu Said, the Islamic Jihad terrorist who blew himself up at an open-air market in Hadera in 2005, killing five people and Labib Azzam, who in 1995 murdered five Israelis and injured 23 others in Ramat Gan.

Does the New York Times consider this glorification of anti-civilian murders to be an important subject? Or does the newspaper at least consider it important that Israelis consider it an important subject?

History would suggest the answer to these questions is no. But you can ask @nytimes.
