Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction posted a video last week praising Black September commander Ali Hassan Salameh, one of the architects of the 1972 Munich massacre.
In the video, posted to the Facebook page of the Fatah Commission of Information and Culture on Jan. 22, the anniversary of Salameh’s death, the narrator tells viewers: “Ali Hassan Salameh was characterized by his long arm, which reached across all of Europe, and by high intelligence that enabled him to hunt Mossad agents.”
The narrator goes on to state that “after he was appointed to command the special operations [i.e., terror attacks] against the Israeli intelligence service in the world, his name was connected to many quality operations, such as sending explosive packages to many Mossad agents in Europe.”
Eight Palestinian belonging to the terror organization Black September, a secret branch of Fatah, broke into the athletes’ village at the Munich Olympics on Sept. 5, 1972. The terrorists took Israeli athletes and coaches hostage in their rooms, murdering two right away, ultimately murdering 11 when the German police tried but failed to rescue the hostages and subdue the terrorists at an airport near Munich. The athletes murdered are pictured above.
We call upon the UK Government to officially recognise Jerusalem is Israel's capital and move its embassy to Jerusalem.
