June 12, 2013 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – An-Najah National University in Nablus is notorious for it's 'Sbarro Cafe Exhibition' a walk through glorification of one of the most despicable act of Islamic terrorism ever committed against the people of Israel.
The 2001 attack was perpetrated by HAMAS which targeting the popular Italian restaurant killed 15, 7 of which were children. An additional 130 casualties were recorded, many with devastating battlefield type injuries…shattered limbs, sucking chest wounds, third degree burns, disembowelment…the entire gamut.
In joyous commemoration of this atrocity, students at an-Najah University, located in Nablus - HAMAS central - constructed a walk through replica of the Sbarro Café’s entry way, complete with a Italian flag bunting which framed the opening to the restaurant.
Inside were graphic references to the violence of the day, large pools of fake blood replete with numerous body parts.
This monstrous "exhibit" was constructed apparently with full approval of an-Najah’s then president, Rami Hamdallah.
Perhaps as a reward for his steadfast embrace of Islamic jihad, outgoing Pale president Mahmoud Abbas appointed Hamdallah on June 2 to form the new government.
For the record, Abbas is a Jew hating Muslim fanatic, his PhD dissertation?
"The Other Side: the Secret Relationship Between Nazism and Zionism."
It appears that in making his selection for PM, Abbas has chosen someone from his own kith and kin.
Hamdallah’s CV reveals that he was president of An-Najah National University from August 1998 to the present and a trustee of the Yasser Arafat Foundation from February 2011 to the present.[see,Hamdallah CV]
As the ADL so cogently frames it, "An-Najah University, in the West Bank city of Nablus, has been a flashpoint in the conflict between Israel and Palestinians since at least 1980, when violent anti-Israel protests led the Israeli military to close the school intermittently. Today the student council of An-Najah is known for its advocacy of anti-Israel violence and its recruitment of Palestinian college students into terrorist groups. The council, almost completely controlled by factions loyal to Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Fatah, glorifies suicide bombings and propagandizes for jihad against Israel. Hamas has described An-Najah as a "greenhouse for martyrs." [see, Islamic Palestine Block, An-Najah Students Cell]
So we have the Abbas, representing the terrorist group al-Fatah - which was unremarkably, founded by terror mastermind Yasser Arafat – teaming up with another Muslim fanatic and Fatah supporter, Hamdallah who ran what seems to be a HAMAS recruiting station operating under the guise of an educational institution.
"His critics have even accused him of granting university degrees to a number of top PA security officials who never attended studies." [see, Khaled Abu Toameh, Rami Hamdallah, A Yes Man For All Seasons, Jerusalem. Post]
The pairing of these two is a match made in hell and no good can possibly issue from this indefensible, but thoroughly predictable action.
