Official PA TV program Giants of Endurance, on Israeli Arab prisoners, hosting released Israeli Arab prisoner Lina Al-Jarbouni who was imprisoned for plotting terror attacks with Islamic Jihad terrorists, the family of Israeli Arab prisoner Ibrahim Al-Bakri who was involved in a suicide bombing in which 9 were murdered and 51 wounded, and released prisoner Amir Mansour – PMW was unable to determine the nature of his crimes
Official PA TV host: "Tell us about Ibrahim before the imprisonment. Tell us about his life with you before he was imprisoned."
Father of terrorist prisoner Ibrahim Al-Bakri (involved in a suicide bombing in which 9 were murdered and 51 wounded): "Ibrahim was lively, the whole village loved him. An active and intelligent young man. He completed 12th grade and began to study electrical engineering, and Allah be praised, he was one of those who we are proud of. And today too I am proud of my son since, Allah be praised, he did not do a shameful act, he did an act that fills one with pride."
Mother of Ibrahim Al-Bakri: "The prisoners are in danger. We will take the lands despite [the Israelis], in another one, two, three, or four years. But these prisoners, what is their sin? What is their sin that they are sitting in prison? Why? Where are the Arab states? … These are things that even if [one] were a mountain, he would collapse – a man would collapse."
Host: "Allah willing you are standing firm as [Mount] Carmel stands firm and [Mount] Ebal stands firm."
Mother: "Prison is not just a word, not just a word. Everyone who is imprisoned knows what prison means. Prison is difficult. I just hope that they will look at the prisoners. We will take the lands despite them [the occupiers], and the homes they are building, Allah willing, will be for the Arabs, ours, not for them."
Host: "Your very stability on this land is defiance of all of the occupation's actions."
Mother: "Of course, they stole our lands – Karmiel (i.e., Israeli town) and all of Bu'eine, Deir, Majd Al-Kurum, and Nahf (all located in northern Israel –Ed.), they took them and they are building what they want. If we want to build a room, we can't build."
Released prisoner Amir Mansour: "The prisoner from the Palestinian Interior (i.e., Palestinian term for Israel) suffers double. First he suffers because he has a blue Israeli identity card. The oppressive Zionist enemy authorities treat him as a criminal and as 'a traitor against his land,' in quotation marks of course. They do not recognize him as a Palestinian political prisoner and try to isolate and distance him from his Palestinian environment. And they are twice as strict with him as compared to the others."
