Official Palestinian Authority TV interviewed and honored a female terrorist who killed two Israelis, calling her “the great female fighter, who shines” and “a giant of the struggle.”

The terrorist, Aisha Odeh, murdered two Israelis in 1969, by placing two bombs in a supermarket in Jerusalem. She was sentenced to two life sentences but was released in a prisoner exchange in 1979.



PA TV chose to glorify the murderer of two Israelis at the time of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

However, as Palestinian Media Watch has documented, official PA TV regularly honors and praises terrorists who have killed Israelis. Recently, in response to a PMW report, PA TV stressed that it considers as “heroes” 3 terrorists who are serving a total of 166 life sentences for planning suicide bombings: Abdallah Barghouti (67 life sentences), Ibrahim Hamed (54 life sentences), and Abbas Al-Sayid (35 life sentences).

PA TV host Manal Seif: “Palestinian Media Watch… slandered these heroes and claimed that they are terrorists… if they see all these prisoners as terrorists – we see them as heroes.”



The following is a longer excerpt of the interview with terrorist Aisha Odeh, on the weekly PA TV program for and about prisoners In a Fighter’s Home:

PA TV host: “Today’s episode is dedicated to the great female fighter, who shines and who is a veteran of the struggle, Aisha Odeh… We are always proud of the fighters’ struggles, all the more so when a giant of the struggle, Aisha Odeh, is with us… You carried out an operation (i.e., terror attack) in Jerusalem… ”

Terrorist Odeh: “I joined the armed activity and we carried out an operation in Western Jerusalem on Feb. 22, 1969… I received two life sentences…”

PA TV host: “Israelis died [in the operation].”

Terrorist Odeh: “We placed two bombs. One bomb exploded and one bomb was discovered a few moments before it exploded. Of course two were killed and 10 were wounded.”
[Official PA TV, Aug. 27, 2013]

Aisha Odeh - was sentenced to two life sentences and another 10 years for placing a bomb which killed 2 in a supermarket in Jerusalem on Feb. 22, 1969. She was released in a prisoner exchange deal in 1979.

Abdallah Barghouti - serving 67 life sentences for preparing explosives for terror attacks in which 67 people were murdered: Sbarro restaurant (15 killed, Aug. 9, 2001), Sheffield Club (15 killed, May 7, 2002), Moment Café (11 killed, March 9, 2002), triple attack at Ben Yehuda pedestrian mall (11 killed, Dec. 1, 2001), Hebrew University (9 killed, July 1, 2002), and Bus 4 in Tel Aviv (6 killed, Sept. 19, 2002).

Ibrahim Hamed - serving 54 life sentences for planning suicide attacks, including the suicide bombings at Hebrew University (9 killed), Cafe Moment (12 killed), Cafe Hillel (7 killed), Zion Square in Jerusalem (11 killed).

Abbas Al-Sayid is serving 35 life sentences for planning two suicide bombings, one in 2002 at a Passover dinner, killing 30 Israelis, and another in 2001, killing 5 and wounding 100.
