PA TV host longs for days of Palestinian terror, encourages more violence

Official PA TV program
I Call You, on the sixth week of the terrorist prisoners’ hunger strike that began on April 17, 2017, hosting released terrorist prisoner Abd Al-Hadi Ghneim who murdered 16 people

Official PA TV host:
"Today, during the [prisoners’ hunger] strike, we long for the days of the Intifada, the days of the revolution, in which the Palestinian people struggled for freedom, struggled to end the settlements, and against the occupation that still exists today. Why are we not seeing activities like that today? We appreciate every effort of every member of our Palestinian people, but we want more from them."
Released terrorist murderer Abd Al-Hadi Ghneim: "You bring me back to the 1987 Intifada (i.e., Palestinian violence and terror, 1987-1993). I was active in various ways. In my operation (i.e., terror attack) on bus 405, 16 Zionists died and 24 were wounded… I was arrested after the operation and they took care of me [medically]. I spent 22 and a half years [in prison]."
Official PA TV host: "We always salute this heroic role."
