Murderer of one is “prominent national figure we are all proud of” – PA TV host
Official PA TV host: “Greetings to prisoner Nael Barghouti (i.e., murdered 1) who began his 42nd year in the occupation’s prisons. Nael Barghouti is a prominent national figure we are all proud of, and Allah willing we will soon receive Nael and all the veteran prisoners outside of the prison’s darkness.”
Nael and Fakhri Barghouti – Palestinian terrorists who murdered an Israeli army officer in January 1978, near Ramallah. Both were sentenced to life but were released in the Shalit prisoner exchange deal in 2011. Nael Barghouti was arrested again in 2014 for violating the terms of his release by offering Hamas to serve as its minister of prisoners' affairs, and is serving a life sentence plus an additional 18 years.
