Notorious Terrorist Involved In Ramallah Lynching Dies in Israeli Prison, Glorified By Palestinian Society

Notorious Terrorist Involved In Ramallah Lynching Dies in Israeli Prison, Glorified By Palestinian Society

“Abu Hamid was photographed taking part in the desecration of the bodies of IDF reservists Vadim Nurzhitz and Yossi Avrahami during the Ramallah Lynching.”

The leading Palestinian terrorist and participant in the Ramallah Lynching in 2000 died in an Israeli hospital while serving multiple life sentences.

Nasser Abu Hamid, who co-founded the terrorist group Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (AAMB), died on Tuesday morning of lung cancer, Israeli media reports confirm.

In 2002, Abu Hamid was apprehended and brought before an Israeli court. He confessed to murdering seven Israelis and is suspected of taking many more lives. Besides carrying out several deadly terrorist attacks, he participated in the Ramallah Lynching, where two unarmed Israeli soldiers were tortured and killed by a Palestinian mob in the West Bank city of Ramallah.

Palestinians in Rage Over Top Terrorist’s Death

The death of the leading terrorist figure appears to have caused great rage and anguish among Palestinians, with Palestinian groups organizing protests and strikes in the West Bank and Gaza.

“Shopkeepers in Ramallah, Nablus, Hebron and Bethlehem closed their businesses on Tuesday, AFP correspondents said, while schools sent students home and protesters gathered in several areas of the West Bank,” the TV channel France24 reported. “A demonstration was also held in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, an AFP photographer reported.”

The Palestinian Authority, which administers the West Bank, is officially mourning the death of the convicted murderer and terrorist. “Palestinian prime minister Mohammed Shtayyeh said he was mourning Abu Hamid’s death ‘in the name of the government and our Palestinian people,'” the French broadcaster added.

The Jerusalem Post confirmed the terrorist’s death:

Palestinian terrorist Nasser Abu Hamid, a founder of Fatah’s al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade who murdered seven Israelis and participated in the infamous Ramallah lynch in 2000, died from cancer on Tuesday morning in an Israeli prison hospital.

The Israel Prison Service confirmed that Abu Hamid died while hospitalized at Yitzhak Shamir Medical Center. He was imprisoned multiple times on terrorism charges and was sentenced to a life sentence for the deadly terrorist attacks he conducted and organized.

Abu Hamid took part in the Ramallah Lynch in 2000 and murdered three Israelis in shooting attacks that same year. He also planned and directed three terrorist attacks in 2002 and was imprisoned on a life sentence later that year. (…)

The Fatah movement announced a comprehensive strike in the Ramallah governorate on Tuesday after Abu Hamid’s death. Days of mourning and strikes were announced in additional Palestinian cities, towns and universities on Tuesday.

Palestinian prisoners announced that they would protest in light of the death as well. Palestinian factions in Jerusalem called for a march at the Damascus Gate of the Old City of Jerusalem on Tuesday evening in response to Abu Hamid’s death.

Ramallah Lynching and Abu Hamid’s Murderous Trail

The gruesome Ramallah Lynching occurred on October 12, 2000, when two IDF reservist soldiers took a wrong turn to their base and ended up in a Palestinian-controlled area.

First Corporal Yosef Avrahami and First Sargent Vadim Norzhich, both aged 33, mistakenly entered the Palestinian city of Ramallah and were arrested by the local police. The two men were taken to the city’s police headquarters, where they were beaten and killed by a frenzied mob amid chants of “Allahu Akbar.”

A “mob of Palestinians stormed the building and tortured the soldiers to death, mutilating and defiling their bodies beyond recognition,” an official Israeli report later noted.

Detailing some of Abu Hamid’s crimes, the news agency Jewish News Syndicate reported Tuesday:

According to the Almagor Terror Victims Association, on Oct. 12. 2000, Abu Hamid was photographed taking part in the desecration of the bodies of IDF reservists Vadim Nurzhitz and Yossi Avrahami during the Ramallah Lynching; on Dec. 21, 2000, he murdered Eli Cohen in a shooting attack near Giv’at Ze’ev; and on Dec. 31, 2000, he murdered Rabbi Binyamin and Talya Kahane in a shooting attack near Ofra.

Also according to Almagor, he planned the February 2002 attack in Jerusalem’s Neveh Ya’acov neighborhood in which policewoman Galit Arbiv was murdered and 10 civilians were wounded; directed the February 2002 murder of Gadi Rejwan in the Atarot industrial zone in Jerusalem; and was responsible for the March 2002 bombing at the Seafood Market restaurant in Tel Aviv, murdering three Israelis—Eliyahu Dahan, Yossi Habi and policeman Salim Barakat—and wounding 31.

Inclination towards terrorism appears to run in the Abu Hamid family. “Five of Abu Hamid’s brothers have spent time in Israeli prisons for their role in the violence, while another brother was killed in 1994 in clashes with Israeli forces,” France24 reported.

Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades Terrorist Group

Meanwhile, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (AAMB) terrorist group he helped create during the ‘Second Intifada’ terror wave in 2000 continues to grow in strength and wage a campaign of terror against Israeli civilians and soldiers.

The West Bank-based AAMB is responsible for some of the recent deadly terrorist attacks inside Israel. “During the last few months an increasing number of ‘brigades’ have appeared in Judea and Samaria, military-terrorist networks calling themselves al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (AAMB),” the Israeli national security thinktank, Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, disclosed in a report released in October. “They attack the Israeli security forces and civilians in Judea, Samaria and inside Israeli territory,” the statement added.

The AAMB has close ties to the PLO-controlled Palestinian Authority, which rules over the West Bank. According to the think tank’s report, some of the terror group’s operatives “are high-ranking officers in the PA’s security forces.”

Palestinians in rage over top terrorist’s death.

Too bad he didn’t die on 9/11 then they would’ve danced in the streets.

    He should have died at the time. Why is anyone still putting up with Paliscum today? Even more important, is why have any of them been allowed to come here. They are despised world wide, for good reasons.

More good news. F that scumbag. Hope it was painful.

And this is the side the American left allies, including Democrats in Congress.

    Yeah, the alleged “victims” are self-destructive, perennially belligerent and genocide-aspiring Muslim supremacists/terrorists, gleefully funded, enabled and supported by morally bankrupt European, Leftist dhimmis and American Dhimmi-crats.

      I’ve lived and worked in the Middle East. It’s amazing to watch a culture that can so quickly switch in and out of two personae – one.minute you get the finger snapping, demanding, smug superiority of the true believer and their disdain for the infidel, and the next minute they are the woe is us, put upon, suffering victims of the perfidy of imperialism and Jews. They remind me a lot of American black urban culture.

The frisson of inflicting horror on yr betters is intoxicating, second, or even third hand, too. But, it’s a quick buzz of stupid mainly for folks who have nothing better — embarrassing for grown ups.

Sadly they’re tools, grown to be kept all wee-wee’d up. Perhaps they started out with potential for more, but over time it becomes all they have.

One wonders if the people dancing in the streets realize what they are imbibing — their problem, spreading — our problem, and cultivating in others — their problem again.

How many chances have these noxious creatures been given to accept reality and reach a peaceful agreement to coexist with a powerful, prosperous nation that is NOT going away? Good lord, what a tiresome, dead-end culture these pests are wallowing in.

Rot in hell.

Good riddance! One less terrorist on the planet!

Guy’s serving multiple life sentences. He was going to die in prison regardless of when he died. Why not now?

    No. You don’t know Israel. He was likely to be released at some point as part of a grotesquely lopsided prisoner exchange, or else simply as a “goodwill gesture” to promote peace talks. Now he can’t be, so that’s good.


The Religion Of Peace on display.

Guy was a founder of the AAMB, so he wanted to be a martyr. Now he is one.

What’s the problem? Why are people mourning him finally getting to where he wanted to be?

Gee, I’m just heartbroken. How will I ever sleep tonight?

The photo at the beginning of this article is of Aziz Salha, a murderer showing off his literally red hands to a crowd and the cameras in 2000. A year later, Israeli security arrested him, and he was sentenced to life imprisonment. IMO, he, Nasser Abu Hamid, and all the other murderers should have been tried and hanged within a few months of their arrest. Instead, Salha was released after only 10 years of imprisonment. Hamid was not released, but he was kept alive in prison, I’m sure in reasonably humane conditions, until he died of natural causes – with Israeli doctors (whom he would have murdered if he could) fighting to keep him alive all the time.

And now, the Palestinian leaders are stirring their people to rage over this murderer’s death by natural causes. They encourage their young men and women to attempt to infiltrate Israel and murder children. When is Israel going to recognize that these leaders are at war with them, but always in breach of the laws of war, and treat them appropriately – each inflammatory speech followed by a paratroop raid, a trial, and a hanging within 24 hours?
