The official Facebook page of Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah party is marking 50 years since the first terror attack carried out by the Arab nationalist group - and in typical style has posted a graphic image glorifying the murder of Israelis in celebration.

The image posted on the Fatah Party Central Page shows a pile of skulls and bones, topped with a rifle bearing the Fatah flag.

Several of the bloodied skulls are marked with stars of David. The caption reads: Fatah will remain, over your skulls

Fatah's Facebook page regularly features posts glorifying terrorism or anti-Semitism.

Following the recent massacre at a synagogue in Jerusalem's Har Nof neighborhood, Abbas's party expressed its joy at the news, posting: "Handing out candy in the cities of the West Bank in celebration of the Jerusalem operation, which was carried out to avenge the execution of martyr Yusuf Al-Ramuni and the violations at the Al-Aqsa Mosque," Fatah wrote on its official page

Yusuf Al-Ramuni, a Jerusalem bus driver, hanged himself in an apparent suicide in mid-November. The PA, Hamas and other Palestinian factions insisted he had bee "murdered" however, despite the evidence to the contrary, and his death was used by some as a justification for murdering four worshippers and a police officer at the synagogue.



Fatah 'Hangs Bibi' in Latest Threatening Facebook Image

Palestinian Arab world taunts Israel, pulling down one offensive photo and replacing it with incitement against PM Binyamin Netanyahu. By Tova Dvorin First Publish: 1/4/2015, 11:49 AM

Fatah pulled down an offensive image showing the terror group's flag over skulls with Jewish stars from its Facebook page Saturday, after a CNN interview exposed the photo and caused a PR snafu for the Palestinian Authority (PA).

However, the group then merely replaced the image with another offensive graphic - this time, showing Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu awaiting execution by lynching, in connection to the PA going to the International Criminal Court (ICC) to file war crimes against Israel.

The Facebook fiasco began with the image above, which circulated on social media for several days before the CNN interview published Friday.

When asked about the photo, a member of Fatah's Central Committee claimed that a "lone poster" had posted the image to its page, and had been ordered to remove it.

"Fatah did not design this image," Mahmoud al-Aloul said. The person who posted it to Fatah's page "is currently being asked to remove it. The image and the text do not reflect the opinions of Fatah." The image went down shortly thereafter.

However, hours later, the Netanyahu-noose photo went live, 0404 news reports Sunday.

Fatah has often used its Facebook page as a vehicle for incitement, and activity on its social media accounts to this end have increased over the past several months.

In November, after several stabbings and "car rampages" murdering Israelis near the Jerusalem light rail, Fatah took to Facebook to publish a slew of cartoons, videos, and other media praising the attacks and calling for more terrorism against Israelis and Jews.

Days earlier, the ruling faction of the PA called for a "day of rage" against Israel on its page after Israeli security forces killed Mu'taz Ibrahim Khalil Hijazi, the terrorist behind the Yehuda Glick assassination attempt.

And over the summer, Fatah was instrumental in spreading a trend for Palestinian Arabs worldwide to post photos on social media of a three-fingered gesture, which indicated support for the abduction and murder of three Israeli teenagers.
