Abu Daoud Case Arouses Abu Abbas Case.
By Arutz-7 News Service
In light of the decision to bar the entry of PLO terrorist leader Abu Daoud to Israel, the Supreme Court has been asked to rule on a similar issue regarding another PLO terrorist - Muhammad Abu Abbas.
Abu Abbas masterminded the infamous PLO attack on the Italian cruise liner Achille Lauro, in which an elderly and crippled American Jew, Leon Klinghoffer, was brutally killed. When Abu Abbas surfaced last year in Gaza, Atty. Nitsana Darshan-Leitner petitioned against the Attorney-General, demanding that Abu Abbas be tried for his role in the murderous attack.
"Abu Abbas is even more dangerous and extreme than Abu Daoud," she said, "as he still commands a large terrorist faction which has never accepted Oslo or renounced violence against Israel... The High Court is obligated to adjudicate every matter that is brought before it, regardless of its effect on Israel's foreign relations."
