While in Ramallah on Thursday I noticed a public square which seemed dedicated to someone with a terrorist affiliation, and took this photo of the sign marking the site.
Sure enough, a friend who’s fluent in Arabic confirmed that the sign (in a prominent retail district) says:
Field Commander of the Al-Aqsa Martyr’s Brigade in Ramallah
Commander Ayman Rateb Jabarin
who became a martyr on June 22, 2006
Of course, this isn’t the first public square in Ramallah to be named after a terrorist. Dalal Mughrabi, who led one of the most lethal terror attacks in Israel’s history, was also memorialized in the city as a hero by the Palestinian Authority.
