PA TV glorifies a prisoner who carried out shooting attacks

PA TV filler broadcast during the program For You dedicated to Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons. The filler denounces the new limitations on prisoner privileges.
Text on screen:
"Our brave prisoners – we are with you and for you. The arbitrary measures against our brave prisoners – withholding of family visits to prisons, [now permitted only] once a month, and only for half an hour.
For you.
Handcuffing of hands and feet during the visit.
Poster shown with photograph of prisoner Majdi Amer during a visit, with feet shackled. Next to him appears inscription:
'The lion of Kufr Qalil, the heroic prisoner Majdi Amer'
Ban on university studies
And ban on bringing in books.
Ban on watching Arab satellite channels and PA TV.
Our hearts are with you, our prisoners
For you."

Note: Majdi Amer was a member of the Palestinian security forces, arrested in 2005 for carrying out a series of shooting attacks under Hezbollah directives.
