Palestinian terrorist murderer of 5 will keep on killing if he is released from prison again, says his brother – it is his "national duty to return to military activity"

Official PA TV program Giants of Endurance, on terrorist prisoner Khalil Abu Arram who murdered 5




Brother of terrorist Khalil Abu Arram: “This is not the first time that Khalil [Abu Arram] (i.e., terrorist, responsible for the murder of 5 people) went to prison. Before that he was given a long sentence and served 12 years (sic., 5 years) of it. Allah be praised, he came out in the previous prisoner exchange [deal], but in accordance with his national duty he returned to his [military] activity again – together with his comrades of course, we do not diminish the value of his comrades, and he himself does not diminish the value of his comrades. They are comrades [who are like] one hand, comrades in arms. As a sign of solidarity with his brothers he returned to his activity again,and I gather that if he comes out [of prison] he will return to his activity a second time, and a third time, and a fourth time; as long as there is a drop of water and as long as Palestine is being subjected to oppressive occupation he will continue with all his efforts to remove the occupation from Palestine, him and all the people of Palestine without exception.”


Official PA TV host: “May Allah bless you, Khalil Abu Arram, may Allah bless you, from the [official PA TV] program Giants of Endurance.”
