Twice last week, official Palestinian Authority TV broadcast greetings to the murderers of the Fogel family from the relatives of the killers and from the PA TV host.
On March 11, 2011, five members of the Fogel family were killed in their home in the Israeli town Itamar by Palestinian terrorists from the Awad family. Hakim Awad led the attack, killing the parents Ehud and Ruth and three of their children, aged 11 years, 4 years, and 2 months.
On the phone, Hakim Awad's mother "blesses" her "dear son," and despite the fact that participants in this TV program normally do not mention the terror attacks for which their relatives are serving time, the mother mentions that her son is the one who "carried out the operation in Itamar and sentenced to 5 life sentences," referring to her son's brutal killings in the town Itamar.
Hakim Awad's aunt also participated in the program and referred to the terrorists involved in the killings as "heroes," calling Hakim Awad "the hero, the legend." This prompted the PA TV host to add: "We, for our part, also convey our greetings to them."

Nyhetssajten Ynet beskriver vad som hände i Itamar
Rabbi Yaakov Cohen, a neighbor who discovered the bodies, said that the Fogel's 12-year-old daughter knocked on his door around 12:45 am Saturday. She said that no one opened the door at her home, and that there are muddy footprints at the entrance.
"I took my weapon and we went up to the back window of the house, where we saw one of the surviving children," Cohen said. "He was sitting in the center of the living room, where there was no sign of blood, only mud."
They then asked the boy to open the front door.
"The daughter went into one of the rooms, and saw the horror before I did," Cohen said. "I entered and saw that another boy survived, a two-year-old. He was lying next to his bleeding parents, shaking them with his hands and trying to get them to wake them up, while crying."Flera barn höggs alltså till döds. Och de ansvariga personerna hyllas nu i officiella PA-tv.
Det är alltså det moderata Fatahs TV-kanal. Det moderata Fatah som emottar miljoner i svenskt bistånd.
