Soccer tournament named for suicide bomber

01.22.03

The Jerusalem Post is reporting that a Palestinian soccer tournament has been named after a suicide bomber.

The Palestinian Authority has decided to commemorate the memory of Abdel Baset Odeh, the Hamas terrorist who carried out the Pessah night suicide bombing in Netanya’s Park Hotel last year, by naming a soccer tournament after him.

Thirty people were killed and dozens wounded in the attack, which triggered Operation Defensive Shield.

The PA’s ministries of sports and education have been naming tournaments after Palestinian “martyrs” for several years. But the decision to honor Odeh surprised many Palestinians because of his affiliation with Hamas.

Next time the Palestinian Authority claims not to condone Hamas, or says that children are not being taught to hate, remember this.

The Pals are completely incorrigible. They would have their state in 20 seconds if they adopted the practices of MLK.
