Palestinian woman marries terrorist "without seeing him or knowing anything else about him" other than the fact that he killed an Israeli

Official PA TV program Giants of Endurance, hosting released terrorist prisoner Rushdi Abu Mukh – who murdered 1 person together with accomplices – and his new wife

 

 

 

Official PA TV host: “Our bride, the authentic Palestinian bride, the wife of prisoner Saleh [Rushdi] Abu Mukh (i.e., terrorist, murdered 1 person together with accomplices). This is certainly a challenge to marry a prisoner who was [in prison] for 35 years. Indeed, it is an honor, but it is also a challenge. How did you make the decision?”

 

Wife of Rushdi Abu Mukh: “Of course, regarding our engagement, immediately when they told me that he is a prisoner who was [in prison] for 35 years, without hesitation I said that I agree, and this is a great honor for me to marry a man like Saleh without seeing him or knowing anything else about him.”

 

 

 

 

Rushdi Abu Mukh - Israeli Arab terrorist who was part of the terror cell that kidnapped and murdered Israeli soldier Moshe Tamam in August 1984. The cell - which included Abu Mukh's brother Ibrahim Abu Mukh, Walid Daqqa, and Ibrahim Bayadseh - was apprehended in 1986 and its members were sentenced to life, but Israeli President Shimon Peres reduced their sentences in 2012 to terms of 35 to 45 years. Abu Mukh was released on April 5, 2021, at the end of his reduced 35-year sentence.
