(January 29, 2019 / Palestinian Media Watch) Karim and Maher Younes are Israeli Arab terrorists serving a 40-year sentence for having kidnapped and murdered Israeli soldier Avraham Bromberg in 1980. They are among the Palestinian Authority’s so-called “veteran” prisoners, and as such are glorified tremendously by the P.A. The fact that they have both “endured” 36 years in prison was celebrated this month by the Palestinian Authority.
“Under the auspices” of P.A. leader Mahmoud Abbas, the Tulkarem district held a “rally of solidarity” in Maher Younes’ honor with the participation of Fatah deputy chairman and Abbas’s representative Mahmoud Al-Aloul, Fatah Central Committee member Tawfiq Tirawi, Tulkarem District Governor Issam Abu Bakr, director of PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Qadri Abu Bakr and P.A.-funded Prisoners’ Club chairman Qadura Fares.

It was also announced at the event that the P.A.’s Al-Istiqlal University in Jericho—the Palestinian Academy for Security Sciences—is venerating murderer Maher Younes and awarding him with an honorary certificate:
“The board of governors of Al-Istiqlal University has decided to present prisoner Maher Younes with an honorary certificate in military science as a sign of appreciation for his role and sacrifice.”
