And not as a punishment:
The Facebook page for Fatah in Lebanon has posted this picture of a mother dressing her young son with a suicide belt. Palestinian Media Watch has documented the ongoing glorification of violence and Martyrdom by the PA. This picture was posted on the Fatah site together with an imaginary conversation between the son who is being sent to his death and the mother encouraging it. “Why me and not you?” the child innocently asks his mother, who answers that she will continue to have more children “for the sake of Palestine”:“My mother dressed me in a strange belt (i.e., a suicide belt).I asked her: ‘What is this, mother?’
She said: ‘I will put it on you and you will go to your death!’
I said to her: ‘Mother, what have I done that you want me to die?’
She shed a tear that hurt my heart and said: ‘The homeland needs you, son. Go and blow up the sons of Zion.’
I said to her: ‘Why me and not you?’
She said: ‘I will stay in order to give birth to more children for the sake of Palestine.’
I kissed her hand and said to her: ‘Keep it up, mother, for you and for Palestine I will kill the impure and the damned.’”[Fatah-Lebanon's Facebook page, posted Sept. 3, 2012, accessed Oct. 28, 2012]
The Facebook page states that it is “the official page of Fatah’s Information and Culture Commission in Lebanon,” and is linked to from the official website of the Fatah Information and Culture Commission (www.fatehmedia.ps).
This is only one example of the glorification of terror on the Fatah Facebook page, and I hope to show more examples in future posts.
In the meantime, this particular example has inspired me to create the following poster.
