Fatah Official’s Family Disowns Him over Censure of Murder of a Jew

Hatred of Israel is thicker than anybody’s blood.
PA Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud al-Habbash: "What? Me condemn terror?"

PA Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud al-Habbash: "What? Me condemn terror?"

The Gaza family of the Palestinian Authority minister who condemned the murder of an Israeli policeman by Arabs several hours before the Passover Seder has disowned him, according to Gatestone Report.

Mahmoud al-Habbash, Palestinian Minister of Religious Affairs, had told a group of Israeli lefties visiting in Ramallah, “We reject all forms of violence… Palestinian blood is like Israeli blood. It is human blood and precious and no one wants anyone killed.”

The reaction throughout the Palestinian Authority was so furious that al-Habbash later said – long after the lefties were gone – that he wasn’t being so extreme as to actually condemn the killing of the police officer, Baruch Mizrachi, whose pregnant wife and one of their children were wounded in the shooting attack. “I didn’t use the word condemn. I only said that the Palestinian leadership rejects all acts of violence,” he told a television station in Ramallah.

But the damage had been done. What Palestinian Authority in his right mind would condemn killing Jews when Mahmoud Abbas has insisted that Israel release all terrorists and other prisoners from jail?

The al-Habbash clan in Gaza said, “We are proud of the heroic operation in Hebron and of every man and child fighting against the occupation. We disown him and anyone who embraces the despicable Israeli enemy.”

Fatah leader Mansour al-Sa’di called “for lifting his [al-Habbash’s] diplomatic immunity and for prosecuting him immediately for his administrative, financial, and political corruption. We also call on President Abbas to fire him immediately from the Palestinian cabinet.”

Gatestone Report’s Khaled Abu Toameh also stated that within minutes after the al-Habbash’s condemnation, “A photograph of the minister, dressed up as a Jewish rabbi, appeared on many Palestinian websites, making him the public’s number one enemy.”

  3. Yoooiiii mamen….

  4. He’s such an angry man, filled with such hatred.

  5. He’s such an angry man, filled with such hatred.

  6. This hatred goes from generation to generation. It is so instilled into the culture, minds and hearts of the Palestinians that it is like a disease.

  7. Leila Levine says:

    You're so right, Sylvie but why can't the rest of the world see it? (A rhetorical question).

  8. Leila Levine they do see it BUT most are afraid of their sneaky ways….their like cockroaches…ya never really get rid of them. Killing is in their DNA after thousands of years. If their not killing Jews and Christians, they kill each other BUT GOD…..HE'S about to take care of all the serial killer hearts and mind sets.

  9. Gene Strong says:

    Muslims do not.want peace with israel.
    Muslims want israel.
    Israel.should remove all Muslims from Jerusalem Gaza and west bank.as.well.as.destroying iranian nuclear.capacity.

  10. If they're not murdering Jews and Christians, they murder each other. How does anyone have peace with murders???

  11. This is sickening…. what goes around comes around…

  12. Most cops serve because they want to serve and protect others. What Mahmoud al-Habbash said takes guts in his environment. He's right that blood is blood, and I'll say it's a great loss when a service -oriented person is take away. It's just too bad the pressure on men like him are too great to ignore. How can peaceful people speak the truth when they are not free to speak it?
