One of the conditions set by the Palestinian Authority to return to negotiations with Israel is that Israel release all Palestinian terrorists imprisoned before the Oslo Accords were signed in 1993.

Palestinian Media Watch documents that the PA as policy honors all prisoners imprisoned for terror crimes against Israel. Recently, official PA TV chose to glorify two such "pre-Oslo" terrorists, both of whom murdered innocent Israeli civilians. The PA TV host of the program dedicated to prisoners Link in a Chain stated that both murderers had brought "honor" and "pride" "to all humanity."

Faraj Saleh Abdallah Al-Rimahi, who is serving a life sentence for beating an 84 year-old Israeli to death with a hoe in 1992, was coined a "giant hero" by the PA TV host. The host continued:

"Our hero, Faraj Al-Rimahi, is still writing the finest epics of endurance, heroism and self-sacrifice..."

"Hebron district, in cooperation with the Prisoners' Club, the Ministry of Prisoners' Affairs and the Committee of Families of Prisoners, organized a solidarity visit to the families of veteran prisoners in the Hebron district... they are: Ziyad Mahmoud Ghanimat and Mustafa Ghanimat (both serving a life sentence)... Najeh Muqbil (serving 38 years in prison)... Muhammad Al-Tus (serving a life sentence)...

Faiz Abu Ali's father: "I'm pleased when people leave, prisoners and those who are with him say "Ibrahim, Ibrahim," this makes me proud."
