PA minister honors families of murderers with visit
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Jan. 16, 2013
“[PA Minister of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa] Karake was accompanied on these visits [to families of prisoners in Israel] by a delegation from the Ministry [of Prisoners' Affairs]. He visited… the family of prisoner Ibrahim Mas’ad who was sentenced to life in prison in 2006; the family of prisoner Ibrahim Alqam who was sentenced to life in prison in 2000.” (One of the two dates is apparently incorrect, since the two were arrested together, - ed.)
Note: Ibrahim Mas’ad and Ibrahim Alqam murdered an Israeli woman and her 12-year-old son in 1996.
