PA TV honors mastermind of suicide bombings that killed 46 Israelis

Official PA TV host: "Let's welcome the family of heroic prisoner Ibrahim Hamed... Allah willing, our TV program Giants of Endurance will remain at your side... Our biggest wish is that Ibrahim and all the prisoners will leave the darkness of prison. Allah willing, the lifetime of the occupation will be shorter than a life sentence."

Official PA TV host: "Let us all salute the patient, resolute mothers of the prisoners who have taught us and nursed us on loyalty to this land. May Allah give you a long life. Allah willing, Ibrahim will defeat this jailer (i.e., Israel) soon, and be at your side."
