Released Murderer: ‘We Don’t Regret What We Did’

Released prisoner: "[In prison] we'd chat, talk, eat, drink, joke and play throughout the day."

See more examples of the PA’s glorification of the released murderers.

The following are longer excerpts of the reports on official PA TV:

Released murderer Asrar Samrin: “The first question all Israeli media ask every released prisoner is: ‘Do you regret what you did or not?’ This is the question they always ask. Through the great PA TV, I say to the Israelis: There is no Palestinian who did something for the homeland and his nation who will regret it. We don’t regret what we did and we will not regret what we did.”
PA TV host: “Palestine deserves sacrifice.”
Asrar Samrin: “Palestine deserves sacrifice.”
[Official PA TV, Oct. 30, 2013]

Note: Asrar Samrin – Serving a life sentence for the murder of Israeli citizen Tzvi Klein (Dec. 3, 1991). He was released in October 2013 as one of 104 terrorists Israel agreed to release, which was the PA’s precondition for renewing negotiations.

Released prisoner Muhammad Hilal: “The worst thing about Israeli prison is the torturous ride inside ‘the Posta’ (i.e., transport vehicle)… when a man is driven to court or to the hospital or on any ride outside the prison… We prisoners call this ‘ride of torment,’ not ‘the Posta’ and not ‘the ride.’ This is beyond imagination. No matter how much I talk about it it’s hard to convey the suffering. The prisoners sit on a metal chair, made entirely of metal, there’s nothing but metal inside it… ”
PA TV host: “Describe a day in your life in prison. You served 10 years.”
Released prisoner Muhammad Hilal: “In the morning we’d exercise from 7:00 until 8:00… Then the guys would get together in the prison yard and we’d chat, talk, eat, drink, joke and play, etc., throughout the day. At noon the guys would go to their rooms for roll-call. Noon roll-call is from 11:00 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. Roll-call time is time for resting in the rooms. Each group has a routine inside the rooms: Nap time, reading time, study time. Some sleep, some read. At 1:30 or 12:30 p.m. they’d take us out to the yard again. We’d spend [time] with the guys walking, laughing, playing, joking, etc., until dark. Then back to the rooms. They’d lock us up until 6:00 a.m., roll-call time.”
[Official PA TV, May 4, 2013]

PA TV reporter: “Let’s talk about the [prison] visits – how you suffered… the difficulties you encountered during this long period of contacting [your brother] Osama. The permits and harassments to prisoners’ families are well known when they want to visit [relatives in prison]. What happened to you?”
Brother of released murderer Osama Abu Hananeh: “Of course, visiting was very difficult… The methods of inspection, the prison management’s behavior towards us. Of course all these things are hard. The visit was exhausting when we went through the [security] check. They would even pass our shoes through a machine.”
PA TV reporter: “What difficulties did you encounter when you went to visit your sons? Were there any transportation problems in reaching the prisons?”
Mother of released murderer Ahmad Abd Al-Aziz Qadura: “No, by Allah, nothing. Thank Allah, we would visit them and go home.”
[Official PA TV, Oct. 30, 2013]

Note: The guests on the show are relatives of Osama Abu Hananeh and Ahmad Abd Al-Aziz Qadura. Hananeh, Qadura and two others murdered Motti Biton and wounded his wife Molly near Jenin in October 1992. They were serving life time in prison, but were released in October 2013 as part of 104 terrorists Israel agreed to release, which was the PA’s precondition for renewing negotiations.

  1. Sharon Barks says:

    Has the look of murderous druggy lunatic!!!!

  2. The State of Israel must kill all the Arab terrorists, including those who are imprisoned, because the Arab terrorists are making war against Israel, so that they are war enemies, and it is written in the Torah, in Devarim (Deuteronomy) 20:10-18, that God commanded Israel to kill all the war enemies. The war enemies must be killed immediately, and not submitted to trial. The State of Israel must kill the Arab terrorists, instead of arresting them.

  3. Cody Flecker says:

    Is there any doubt as to why Jews and Christians are afraid to settle in Israel? Lunatics like this one are released so that they can kill again. Israel is run by insane politicians. My advice to all is to stay away from Israel. Do not settle there, nor live there.

  4. Wendell Newman says:

    Yet America still holds Polland in prison. He never murdered anyone or was a terrorist. Shame.

  5. Walter Richards says:

    "The prisoners sit on a metal chair, made entirely of metal, there’s nothing but metal inside it.”

    Future murderous terrorists should sit on a wooden oak chairs.
    That's what electric chairs are made of. But make sure they're reconnected.

  6. Yechiel Baum says:

    seems the prisoners had a better life than living in Gaza and earned higher pay.
    The guy on top picture looks like a member of Arab Obama's family,
