PA media glorify pre-Oslo terrorists, whose release is precondition for negotiations with Israel

( While the Palestinian Authority (PA) demands the release of all Palestinian terrorists imprisoned before the signing of the 1993 Oslo Accords as a precondition for restarting peace negotiations with Israel, the PA media have been glorifying the murders committed by those same terrorists, Palestinian Media Watch reported in its June 19 bulletin.

On a PA TV broadcast that aired June 6 and June 8, the narrator called terrorist Ibrahim Faiz Abu Ali, who murdered 24 year-old taxi driver Roni Levy in December 1990, a “hero whose struggle brought honor to us and all of humanity.” Similarly, on a PA TV broadcast that aired May 11 and May 12, the narrator called terrorist Faraj Saleh Abdallah Al-Rimahi, who beat 84 year-old Avraham Kinstler to death with a hoe in 1992, a “giant hero” who is “still writing the finest epics of endurance, heroism and self-sacrifice.” Both of these pre-Oslo terrorists are serving life sentences in Israeli prison.
