Palestinian students praise terrorist murderer as “role model” and “shining star” in PA Ministry of Education campaign

Students’ voices: “For us, Allah willing [soon to be] released prisoner [Karim Younes] (i.e., terrorist, murdered 1) is a role model of firmness, defiance, and achieving freedom. [He is] the hero of the cause, the most veteran prisoner of Ribat (i.e., religious conflict), a shining star in the occupation’s prisons. I send you my greetings, our heroic prisoners, full of the spirit of the great Martyrs, the sunset, and the height of darkness. Karim Younes, we are with you, the entire Palestinian people is with you.”

[PA Ministry of Education, Facebook page, Dec. 15, 2022]

This was part of a campaign by the PA Ministry of Education on the occasion of the upcoming release of terrorist murderer Karim Younes scheduled for Jan. 5, 2023. The ministry had Palestinian students write 40,000 letters of praise to the murderer.
