Hamas terrorist released in Shalit deal requests to finish BA that he started in Israeli prison

Released Palestinian terrorist, Muhammad Sharateha:
TV host:
"Muhammad Sharateha was released in the Shalit deal, and sheds light on one of the most stormy affairs in Israel - the kidnapping of 2 [Israeli] soldiers in 1989. Sharateha was a member of the [terror] squad, and he is the one who killed Ilan Sa'adon and refused to reveal where the body was buried. 7 years and 4 months they searched for the body of Ilan Sa'adon."
Sharateha: "The order [to kidnap] was given by [Hamas leaders] Yassin and Shehada. I did what I did. I don't regret it and never will."
Host: "He has a small request: He is just about to finish his BA at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. He now asks to be able to finish his degree [that he started in prison]."
