THE ORIGINAL HUMANIZE PALESTINE NARRATIVE:
Memorializing Palestinian Terrorists
NO WEBPAGE : MUHAMMAD MAHMOUD ODEH ABU AL-THAHIR
A web archive of the original Humanize Palestine website home page, dated March 27, 2016, displays the following picture of Thahir:
By clicking on the picture of Thahir found on the March 27, 2016 archived Humanize Palestine home page, the following archived webpage opens, “IN MEMORY: NADEEM SIAM NUWARA”, dated March 31, 2016:
There is no Thahir webpage. The archived webpage above is the same archived webpage linked to Nadeem Siam Nuwara. His photo follows Thahir’s on the Humanize Palestine home page. Going back in time, the closest the archived website comes to linking Thahir to his own webpage is the archived Humanize Palestine website for Nuwara, dated October 2, 2015, below:
Clicking on Thahir’s home page picture displays the above webpage. It shares pictures of Nuwara and Thahir. The top two pictures are Nuwara and the bottom two, Thahir. This may be explained by the fact that they were both killed during the same incident and had a common funeral service.
More recent versions of the Humanize Palestine website have no webpage for Thahir and his photos do not appear on the Nuwara webpage as they did in the archived October 2, 2015 webpage.
Muhammad Mahmoud Odeh Abu al-Thahir was shot and killed by the Israeli military during a violent West Bank protest on May 15, 2014. Nadeem Siam Nuwara was also killed on the same day during the same protest.
THE FACTUALLY CORRECT NARRATIVE:

15 May 2014 Ofer Prison demonstration
At Beitunia, 150 Palestinians attended the commemoration [Nakba Day],which took place outside Ofer Prison… The Palestinians, among them the two boys later killed, threw rocks and Israeli police employed riot dispersal measures. Israeli sources reported the demonstration turned violent at times, while Palestinian sources say it began peacefully, but turned violent when the demonstrators were shot at by live fire to disperse stone-throwers. In addition to stone-throwing, burning tires were rolled towards Israeli security forces, and Israeli sources stated that five Molotov cocktails were thrown at policemen and a police bomb squad had destroyed an explosive device. Police responding by shooting tear gas canisters, stun grenades and the firing of rubber bullets. Four Palestinian protestors were shot at the Beitunia demonstration, on the same patch of asphalt. They were Nadim Nuwara (17); Mohammad Mahmoud Odeh Salameh (Abu Thaher; 17); Muhammad al-‘Azza (15), and a fourth man (aged 23), who remains unidentified. The shootings took place in a sequence of three separate incidents. The first casualty was Muhammad ‘Azzah, 15, who was shot and wounded in the chest at around 12:20 p.m. The first fatality that day was Nuwara, who was shot some 15 meters from where Azzah had been hit. He was shot through the chest at 13:45. Salameh (17) was fatally shot in the same location at 14:58. He was pronounced dead on arrival by doctors having been shot in the back.
Israel investigation and trial of border policeman
The Israeli military promised to investigate the incident. One soldier had been suspended on May 28 while investigation was continuing….
On 11 November 2014, the Judea and Samaria District Police arrested an Israeli border policeman after forensic evidence matched his gun to a bullet found in the backpack of one of the deceased. It was stated that the policeman would be charged with murder….
On 14 December 2014, the Jerusalem District Court cleared for publication the name of the Border Police officer who was identified as Ben Dery….
In December 2016 The Times of Israel reported that Deri (alternative spelling: Dery) had changed his initial claim that he fired only rubber bullets to one in which he admitted firing live rounds at the two teenagers who were some distance away from him. He was also accused of trying to cover up his actions at the time. … a plea deal was reached in which Deri’s charge was to be reduced from murder to that of “wrongful death”.
On 25 April 2018 a Jerusalem court found Ben Deri guilty of “causing death by negligence”….
The court sentenced Deri to 9 months in prison [The sentence was later doubled to 18 months.]

HAMAS / IZZ AL-DIN AL-QASSAM BRIGADES FUNDRAISING SCHEME
Prior to August 2020, the Hamas and Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades websites had a green banner at the top of their home page. This is how the home page of Hamas’ TV station, al-Aqsa TV, appeared on March 16, 2020:
Note the green banner at the top of the page:
The green banner contained an embedded URL that linked to the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades website. Clicking on the green banner would open this webpage:
This was a fund raising scheme utilizing cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, to underwrite its terrorism (“resistance”). Note that the solicitation is in English. This would indicate that the fund raising scheme not only targeted Arabic speaking countries but English speaking western countries as well, such as the U.S.
In August 2020, the U.S. government seized the website, funds and assets:
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE SEIZURE
The original Humanize Palestine website memorialized Hamas and al-Qassam Brigades terror operatives, Muhammad Mahmoud Odeh Abu Al-Thahir was one example. In their own words, they honored the deceased terror operatives as martyrs by bringing them back to life through their pictures, stories, art, and poetry.
Now the victims of these terror operatives have been honored. The U.S. Department of Justice has seized al-Qassam Brigades assets, funds and websites, used to finance their terror campaigns. The monies will be directed to the United States Victims of State Sponsored Terrorism Fund.
