Palestine Authority TV honored convicted murderer and terrorist 'Amer Abu Sarhan's family last week, in a chilling segment translated by MEMRI.
Abu Sarhan (Arabic for "Wolf Father") is serving three consecutive life sentences for stabbing to death three innocent Israelis in a 1990 knife attack in Jerusalem.
Sarhan's actions were followed by many similar attacks over the years, such as a Palestinian terrorist stabbing a random, defenseless 86-year-old man to death in 2008.
During a disgraceful interview segment, the Governor of Bethlehem, Abdel-Fattah Hamaiel, said the following of convicted terrorist Abu Sarhan:
"We hold 'Amer in high esteem, and through you, would like to convey to him, and to all his courageous, heroic, and steadfast fellow prisoners...we would like to convey to them our salutations, appreciation, and pride."
In an even more disturbing conclusion to the segment, the reporter for Palestine Authority TV asks Sarhan's young nephew, who has a picture of the terrorist on his t-shirt, what the image means to him.
The young Palestinian responds: "I am proud of my uncle because he is a hero. He is standing here next to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and we remember him."
