Palestinian University Awards Jailed Murderer With Honorary Certificate
JNS.org – Karim and Maher Younes are Israeli Arab terrorists serving 40-year sentences for kidnapping and murdering Israeli soldier Avraham Bromberg in 1980. They are among the Palestinian Authority (PA)’s so-called “veteran” prisoners, and because of that, they are glorified tremendously by the PA.
Most recently, the fact that they have both “endured” 36 years in prison was celebrated by the Palestinian Authority.
“Under the auspices” of PA leader Mahmoud Abbas, the Tulkarem district held a “rally of solidarity” in Maher Younes’ honor, with the participation of Fatah deputy chairman and Abbas’ representative Mahmoud Al-Aloul, Fatah Central Committee member Tawfiq Tirawi, Tulkarem District Governor Issam Abu Bakr, director of PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Qadri Abu Bakr, and the PA-funded Prisoners’ Club chairman Qadura Fares.
At the event, Abbas’ deputy Al-Aloul “conveyed the blessings of President [Abbas] and the leadership to prisoner Maher Younes, his family and all of our heroic prisoners,” according to the official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida on January 20.
At the event, it was also announced that the PA’s Al-Istiqlal University in Jericho — the Palestinian Academy for Security Sciences — is venerating murderer Maher Younes and awarding him with an honorary certificate: “The board of governors of Al-Istiqlal University has decided to present prisoner Maher Younes with an honorary certificate in military science as a sign of appreciation for his role and sacrifice.”
This is yet one more of example of the PA honoring and celebrating terrorists who murder Jews simply because they are Jews.
