Mahmoud Abbas gave a three-hour long speech the the seventh Fatah conference in Ramallah on Wednesday.
Although he mentioned many times that he only supports "peaceful and popular resistance" he did say "at this stage," meaning that he has no moral qualms with terrorism, but only tactical issues with it at this time.
And he proved that he is not against terrorism by calling out terrorists by name as "martyrs" in his speech. These included:
Dr. George Habash - founder of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terror group, pioneer of airplane hijackings
Abu Ali Mustafa - also of the PFLP, responsible for ten car bomb attacks in Israel
Sheikh Ahmed Yassin - founder of Hamas terror group, responsible for many suicide bombings and other attacks
Fathi Shikaki - cofounder of Islamic Jihad terror group, also responsible for numerous suicide bombings and other attacks
Muhammad Zaidan (Abu Abbas) - Founder of the Palestine Liberation Front terror organization, responsible for the hijacking of the Achille Lauro cruise ship where Leon Klinghoffer was murdered
Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Mufti of Jerusalem who instigated deadly riots against Jews in the 1920s and 1930s and worked with the Nazis during World War II
Abbas said of all these "martyrs" that "they are all our heroes, you will not forget them, they are immortal in our people's memory, and the homeland of Palestine. Their sacrifices will not be in vain."
