How about the “Taliban Bowl” or the “Osama Cup”? The US taxpayer continues to fund the jihad.
“Soccer tournament named for ‘Bat Mitzvah attack’ terrorist,” by Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook for Palestinian Media Watch:
The Palestinian Authority (PA) continues to glorify terrorists and to present them as role models for children.
In a school in Tulkarem (West Bank) this week, a soccer tournament was named after Ziyad Da”as. Da”as planned the attack in which a gunman opened fire with an M-16 rifle at a Bat Mitzvah in Hadera in January 2002, killing six and wounding 30. He was also behind the kidnapping and murder of two Israelis in Tulkarem in 2001. Da”as, a Fatah-Tanzim city commander, was killed by Israel in August 2002.
Significantly, the article indicated that the tournament took place in a Palestinian school and that the school administration was thanked “for providing the means for its success.” Some Western governments have recently renewed funding of the Palestinian Authority, including its educational infrastructures, based on the assumption that schools are involved in positive education.
It should also be noted that in reporting the story, the PA daily glorified the terrorist as “one of the brave people of the Palestinian resistance.” The daily Al Hayat Al Jadida is owned by the Palestinian Authority, and is therefore indirectly funded by Western money.
Da”as plans an attack at a religious celebration in the honor of a 12 year old girl and he is referred to as “one of the brave people of the Palestinian resistance.”
Does this represent the educational values of a society that wants to make peace? Are these are the people that the US is hell bent on giving a state? Are these the “peace partners” that Condi Rice and George Bush are shoving down the Israeli throat?
When you take a look your next payroll stub, keep in mind where some of your federal tax deduction is going. You may have helped sponsor this event.
