PA Ministry marks the 10 year anniversary of terrorist Sa'adat in prison, the “heroic fighter”

Headline: "Ahmad Sa'adat – tireless emissary for freedom and dignity"
     "In a report which it published, the Ministry of Prisoners' Affairs drew attention to the prisoner leader, MP and Secretary General of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Ahmad Sa'adat… marking ten years since his arrest, and three years of isolation in the oppressors' prisons.
The report described Sa'adat's struggle as a 'long journey towards revival' [and Sa'adat himself] as 'a freedom emissary [working] tirelessly for dignity and freedom for his people and his land, a determined and heroic fighter, adhering to his principles and his beliefs, not compromising on them until his last breath; the quiet leader who rattled the foundations of the Hebrew state, and changed completely the balance of power and [Israel's] security theories.'…
The report says, 'Whoever does not know Sa'adat, does not know Palestine. [His is] a glittering name in the struggle, a symbol and example for a nation which decided to live in dignity and as master of its own life, land, and fate. He equaled the enemies of freedom and peace, and [was] at the frontline of all those defending justice and freedom in the world.'"

Note: Ahmad Sa'adat is serving a 30-year sentence for heading the PFLP terror organization. A song at a PFLP event also praised him for planning the assassination of Israeli Minister of Tourism Rehavam Ze'evi in 2001, but he has not been tried for this crime.
