Murderer of 7 praised as 'Hero' in U.S. funded Palestinian Girl's school

What the hell?

"A USAID-funded Palestinian high school for girls in Qalqilya in the West Bank teaches its students that terrorist murderers are “heroes” of Palestinian society.

The Al-Omariya High School for Girls posted on Facebook about a school event, which eulogized and glorified as a “hero” terrorist murderer Khairy Alqam. Alqam shot and murdered six Israelis and one Ukrainian national outside a synagogue in northern Jerusalem in January this year."


I sure hope there is some context to this.

1. There is no context to explain this

Except that the Palestinians have become very radicalized over the past 75 years. Their national liberation movement is predicated on the destruction of Israel. Palestinians who kill Israeli Jews are rewarded with life long stipends, up to $40,000 annually.

Here's a recent example of what support for Palestine looks like:

Susan is a Palestinian writer living in Pennsylvania. She recently had this to say about Ukraine and Zelensky:

Abulhawa caused controversy due to her Twitter comments describing Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy as a "Nazi-promoting Zionist" and accusing him of dragging "the whole world into the inferno of WWIII", leading to three invited Ukrainian authors withdrawing from the event.

Interesting intersectionality, imo. I just watched a video from another American about how Bidens support for Ukraine is moving us closer to WW3.
