The father of a jihad terrorist who murdered three Israelis won an international lawyer prize on Sunday for defending another jihad terrorist’s wife.
Those who stand for good, freedom, human rights are smeared, defamed, mocked, destroyed.
Those who stand for evil, hatred, bigotry, apartheid and Jew hatred are exalted and revered.
Dark times, my friends, dark times.
In ironic twist, terrorist’s father wins international human rights award
By Yori Yalon and Israel Hayom Staff, Israel Hayem, October 25, 2017:
Muhammad Alyan, whose son killed three Israelis in 2015, wins award for best international human rights attorney given by International Institute for Human Rights and Peace in France • “This is an unimaginable record moral low,” Jerusalem activist says.

The father of a terrorist who murdered three Israelis won an international lawyer prize on Sunday for defending another terrorist’s wife.
Attorney Muhammad Alyan’s son, terrorist Baha Alyan, perpetrated the October 2015 attack in Armon Hanatziv neighborhood in Jerusalem, killing three Israelis.
Baha was killed by security forces.
Alyan recently represented Nadia Abu Jamaal, the widow of terrorist Ghassan Abu Jamaal, who participated in the November 2014 terrorist attack on a synagogue in the Har Nof neighborhood in the capital, which killed five worshippers and a police officer.
The terrorist in this attack was also killed by security forces.
Outrageously, for representing Abu Jamaal, Alyan received the prize for best international human rights attorney in a ceremony held in Al-Quds University in Abu Dis, east of Jerusalem.
The university collaborated with the International Institute for Human Rights and Peace in Caen, northern France, to present the award.
Caen’s local bar association, along with its Palestinian counterpart, the French human rights institute and Al-Quds University held the ninth annual International Palestinian Pleading Competition for Human Rights on Sunday.
Many diplomats attended the event, including from Belgium and Canada, along with French MPs and human rights activists.
Alyan took advantage of the opportunity and gave an inflammatory acceptance speech. He described the day “Ghassan was shot dead by occupation police [Israeli police] on the pretext he was killing Israelis in Jerusalem.
“The police did not stop at executing Ghassan without a trial and mere hours after the incident very large forces of police, Border Police and special units surrounded the home and searched it to the astonishment of the wife and children. They did not know what was going on, and did not know that from that moment on their lives would turn into hell, as a security officer told the wife as he wreaked havoc on the home.
The officer informed Abu Jamaal that her husband “had been killed and that his body was being withheld and would be placed in a refrigerator until further notice,” Alyan said.
“The torture did not stop at this point but continued and intensified until it was no longer bearable, as Nadia was informed that occupation authorities would demolish her family home, located in a beautiful place in Jabel Mukaber,” in east Jerusalem.
Meirav Hajaj, whose daughter Lt. Shir Hajaj was murdered in a ramming attack in Armon Hanatziv this January, was enraged to learn that a terrorist’s father had won the award.
“This is an absurd situation that we are trying to prevent,” she said.
“The son committed murder and the father receives money and prizes. He has become a public figure who leads fights against Israel, instead of fearing for his status in the state. This is unreasonable. This is intolerable.”
Maor Zemach, CEO of the Lach Yerushalayim (“For You, Jerusalem”) advocacy group that seeks to safeguard Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem, said that “the consul general of France in Jerusalem and four French MPs awarded a prize to the father of a despicable murderer. He defends the rights of terrorists who murder worshippers while they are praying. This is an unimaginable record moral low.”
Zemach called on the political echelon to respond severely “against the countries who support this distorted morality, and against the university of terrorism in Abu Dis.”
