Abu Bluff awards 'star of honor' to top 'Palestinian' terrorist

Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen
just gave a 'star of honor
' to Nayef Hawatmeh of the 'Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine.'
In a ceremony broadcast on Palestinian television and also posted on
Abbas's Yuutube channel, Nayef Hawatmeh, the leader of the Democratic

bus, the killing of 7 in a Jerusalem bombing, the killing of 4 hostages
in an apartment building in Beit Shean, all of which took place in the

for dozens of other terror attacks, including a suicide bombing near Tel
Aviv that killed 4 in 2003."
Abbas, widely billed as a moderate, has a long track record of honouring terrorists.
