Following are excerpts from an interview with PA Minister Muhammad Ishtayeh on Abu Daoud, one of the planners of the 1972 Munich Olympics terror attack. The interview aired on Al-Manar TV on July 9, 2010.
Muhammad Ishtayeh: The martyr Abu Daoud continues the convoy of martyrs who fell for the sake of Palestine. We all follow this path.
As for the claim that history can be rewritten in a different way – I think it is unjust to say that Palestinian history can be written in a different ink. The ink in which the Palestinian history has been is red, and I believe that it will continue to be written in red ink.
In addition, the martyr Abu Daoud was officially eulogized by the Fatah movement and the Palestinian establishment.
