PA minister legitimizes murdering Israeli infant

 

PA minister says 3.5 million shekel fine

imposed by Israel upon murderer   

of one-year-old infant and his father

is “delegitimizing the [Palestinian] national resistance

Ali Sa’ada, a terrorist prisoner who murdered a father and his one-year-old baby, was fined 3.5 million shekels by Israel. That fine is “delegitimizing ‎the [Palestinian] national resistance,” says Prisoners’ Affairs Authority Director ‎and PA Parliament Member Issa Karake. According to Karake, who holds the rank of ‎minister, the killing of one-year-old Israelis is legitimate “resistance.”‎  

 

In his capacity as Minister of Prisoners’ Affairs, Issa Karake has a long history of glorifying terrorist murderers, as documented by Palestinian Media Watch.

 

Karake defines being a victim of Palestinian terror as “being exposed to resistance by Palestinians”:  

“[Israeli] courts have been... passing sentences on prisoners that force them to pay large sums in financial compensation to Israelis who have been exposed to resistance by Palestinians.”

The example Karake cited was the case of terrorist prisoner Ali Sa’ada, who together with Wa’al Al-Araja, murdered Asher Palmer, 25, and his one-year-old son Yonatan on Sept. 23, 2011. Al-Araja threw two stones at Palmer’s car from a vehicle driven by Sa’ada, hitting the baby in the head and causing Palmer to lose control of his vehicle, which ran into a gulley, killing both of them instantly.

 

The following is a longer excerpt of the story:

 

“In a statement published today [Dec. 16, 2014], Prisoners’ Affairs Authority Director [and PA Parliament Member] Issa Karake said that the Palestinian government had, in accordance with the new prisoners’ regulations, stopped paying the fines continuously imposed on the prisoners by the occupation courts. He clarified that the occupation courts collect large sums from the prisoners, and that 95% of the verdicts pronounced by these courts involve fines, some of which are exceedingly high...

Karake noted the existence of an even more severe policy, which the occupation courts have been adopting, and which involves the passing of sentences on prisoners that force them to pay large sums in financial compensation to Israelis who have been exposed to resistance by Palestinians (i.e., terror attacks). He noted that [a fine of] 3.5 million shekels had been imposed on prisoner Ali Sa’ada, as compensation for the families of the killed settlers, with the aim of delegitimizing the [Palestinian] national resistance against the occupation.”
