Palestinian singer Raed Kabha refers to the bloodthirsty terrorists as “heroes.”
Nearly ninety-one years ago in the ancient Jewish city of Hebron, a bloodthirsty Arab mob tortured, raped and mutilated 67 of their Jewish neighbors. Small children were indiscriminately murdered in front of their parents’ eyes.
Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir “committed particularly brutal murders [of Jews] at Safed and Hebron,” according to the report by the British Government to the League of Nations.
They were convicted of attacking British soldiers and murdering Jews in the massacre. They were executed by hanging by the British in 1930.
Palestinian singer Raed Kabha talks about a song that was written by a popular Arab poet named Nouh Ibrahim, who was held in the Acre prison years after the hanging of Jamjoum, Hijazi, and Al-Zir.
He said, “[The song] perpetuated the memory of the heroes and became an epic in the popular literature and a famous national song.”
When murderers are celebrated as heroes, we know who is responsible for preventing peace.
