Hamas terrorist Mastermind Abbas Al-Sayyed, who was responsible for the 2002 Park Hotel bombing in Netanya that left 30 dead and 140 wounded, was praised in a Â segment on Palestinian Authority TV this month, in honor of his birthday.
Here is the full transcript of the TV segment (provided by MEMRI):
Brother of Abbas Al-Sayyed: Abbas has never discriminated between Hamas, the PFLP, or the DFLP. They were all [acting] together. Therefore, you see in the marketplace or in the street that all the factions respect Abbas and his ideology.
Sister of Abbas Al-Sayyed: The sentence he received was criminal and vindictive. They wanted to take revenge against him because he is Abbas. What did Abbas do? He is a Palestinian, who was defending his country and cause. He did nothing wrong.
