PA TV honors murderer Issa Abd Rabbo with visit to his mother's home

PA TV interview with Abd Rabbo's mother: 
Abd Rabbo's mother: "He wasn't with me for four days. He lived in a cave. When he had carried out the operation (i.e., the killing of the two Israelis), he came back to me. He brought his weapon and came to me. He told me: 'Mother, I shot two.' [I asked him:] 'Who were those two? Were they Arabs?' He said: 'No, mother. Jews...' Praise Allah, the Almighty, his spirits are high... For 29 years he's been teaching generations [of prisoners], and people come and see him. Praise Allah, he has a great reputation. I am proud of my son. I'm proud like a tree that is planted in the ground and grows tall. Praise Allah, I'm proud. I wish I had another 10 [sons] like him. I have no regrets. Praise Allah the Almighty."
