Congressmen Call on Abbas to Fire Official Who Glorified Terrorist


abbasA bipartisan group of congressmen sent a letter to PA President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday strongly condemning Fatah official Sultan Abu Al-Einein following his “open support for the murderer of Eviatar Borovsky,” and called for him to be removed from office. Borovsky, 31, an Israeli father of five, was killed April 29 as he waited for a bus in the West Bank. Al-Einein called the terrorist a “heroic fighter.”

Reps. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.), Ed Royce (R-Calif.), Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.), Brad Sherman (D-Calif.), and Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) told Abbas that “allowing this type of incitement and hatemongering to take place within your ranks is intolerable if you are truly dedicated to non-violence. We ask that you publicly and officially denounce and condemn Mr. Al-Einein’s remarks at once and remove him from his position in your government.”
