Grandson will be a “hero and fighter” like his terrorist murderer grandfather, say terrorist’s children on PA TV

Official PA TV program Jerusalem Prisoners, on terrorist Ayman Sharbati who murdered an Israeli





Alaa Sharbati, son of terrorist Ayman Sharbati: “We grew up holding in our hearts this man [Ayman Sharbati] (i.e., terrorist, murdered 1 person) and holding our heads high [thanks to] him, and we hold the paternal value high because we are the sons of a hero and fighter like him. We have had to raise his head and continue to raise his head until now. Therefore, we grew up living on dad’s good name and living according to how people treat us as the sons of the heroic prisoner who sacrificed his life for the sake of his people’s life.”


Muhammad Sharbati, son of terrorist Ayman Sharbati: “This is [my son] Ayman, named after the Haj (i.e., a title of respect for one who has visited Mecca), [my] father’s name. Allah willing he will be released soon, him and all the prisoners, Allah willing.”


Alaa Sharbati: “They wanted to call him Ahmed, [but] they called him Ayman after the Ayman in prison, and Allah willing he will be a hero like him.”


Muhammad Sharbati: “Allah willing.”
