While murdering innocent people could not be more reprehensible, a notorious Palestinian suicide bomber was recently lauded on Lebanese television.

On a recent broadcast by Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s Lebanon-based Al-Quds Al-Youm TV, two commentators championed the heinous murder of 13 Israelis in the 1996 suicide bombing at Dizengoff Center in Tel Aviv.

Not only were the terrorists who carried out this attack praised, they claimed that this suicide bombing, which injured another 130 Israels, and similar attacks “bring a lot of joy to the Palestinian people.”

The two then fondly discussed how Palestinians hand out candies and sweets to celebrate murders like this, calling on the populace to continue these barbaric crimes.
