Terrorist murderers are "heroes," Abbas says four times in speech

Mahmoud Abbas: "[The release of our prisoners] is a day of joy for our nation, for our people, for our heroic prisoners... This will not be the last time. There will be more groups of heroes who will come to us one after the other... They [the Israelis] postponed these heroes' release by 24 hours and this is something we do not accept... We congratulate you and ourselves for the [release] of these heroes."
[Official PA TV, Dec. 31, 2013]

Terrorists standing next to Abbas:
Jamal Abu Muhsin - stabbed 76 year-old Israeli civilian to death in a park, 1991.
Na'im Al-Shawamreh - placed explosive device that killed a police sapper, while he was defusing the bomb, 1993.
Ahmad Kmeil -- commander of terrorist cell that murdered Israeli soldier and 15 Palestinians who they suspected of helping Israel. 

All three were among 26 terrorists released in December 2013 as part of the 104 terrorists whom Israel agreed to release to fulfill the PA's precondition for renewing negotiations.

The above clip was translated and documented by Palestinian Media Watch:

Founded in 1996, Palestinian Media Watch is an Israeli research institute that studies Palestinian society from a broad range of perspectives by monitoring and analyzing the Palestinian Authority through its media and schoolbooks. PMW’s major focus is on the messages that the Palestinian leaders, from the Palestinian Authority, Fatah and Hamas, send to the population through the broad range of institutions and infrastructures they control.

PMW’s many reports and studies on Palestinian summer camps, poetry, schoolbooks, crossword puzzles, religious ideology, women and mothers, children's music videos and the PA’s indoctrination of adults and children to seek Shahada (Martyrdom), have had significant impact on the way the world sees the Palestinians. PMW has presented its findings before members of US Congress and to members of Parliament in numerous countries, including the European Union, Britain, France, Norway, Sweden, Holland, Switzerland, Canada and Australia, and has lectured at universities and conferences world wide.

PMW material has been presented before the Foreign Affairs Committee in the US Congress and the US Senate Appropriations Committee. In addition, PMW reports regularly on how foreign aid is misused by the PA for terror promotion. These reports have led to changes in legislation and funding procedures. Through its bulletins and reports, PMW continues to give the world a precise understanding of the reality of the Palestinian Authority.
