PA rally: Imprisoned terrorist murderers are “our loved ones” and “heroes”

Official PA TV Live  |
Palestine Live TV broadcast a rally held in Nablus in honor of the released prisoners.
Member of Fatah Central Committee Mahmoud Al-Aloul about the released prisoners: “[They are] those we are proud of… They are a laurel wreath on the homeland’s head.”
Singer on stage sings: “My weapon has emerged.”
Chairman of the Prisoners’ Club Qadura Fares: “To our loved ones in the prisons, to all the heroes who have suffered for many decades. To Karim Younes from the Ara’ village, to Maher Younes, to all the 1948 prisoners (i.e., Israeli Arabs) and to the prisoners from Jerusalem. To all our heroic prisoners. To our commander, our beloved brother, Marwan Barghouti, and to the heroic commander Ahmad Sa’adat. We say to them, and possibly they know better than us, that they belong to a great nation…”
