Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas confirmed that plans to present two female Palestinian terrorists with a medal of honor have been withdrawn…

The Al Kuds Mark of Honor, the PLO’s highest medal, was meant be awarded in a ceremony in Ramallah Thursday to two female terrorists who helped kill Israelis. The terrorists’ families were slated to receive the honors in their stead.

The two female terrorists were Ahlam Tamimi, a Hamas affiliate serving a life sentence for driving the suicide bomber who exploded himself in the Sbarro restaurant in Jerusalem, killing at least half a dozen people, and Amra Muna, who seduced Ophir Rahum over the Internet and then lured him to Ramallah where he was murdered.

Conferring the Al Kuds Mark of Honor is decided at the discretion of the PA president, and he alone has the final say when choosing the Palestinians to be honored with the medal. — Jerusalem Post

This is almost…unintelligible.

Did Abbas not know who he was recommending for “the PLO’s highest medal”? Did he think the Israelis wouldn’t notice? Did he think they would notice but not care?

Does he think that murdering Israeli civilians is the highest act that a Palestinian can perform?

Why does Israel continue with the charade that there is a possibility of peace with the PLO? How long will it take to grasp that a fundamental mistake that was made at Oslo when the terrorist murderers of the PLO/Fatah were chosen to represent the Palestinians?

After all the historical experience with those who want to destroy the Jewish people and the Jewish state, how can we have forgotten what an enemy is and how we must deal with one? Has this concept been invalidated in the postmodern world?
