Following imprisoned terrorist's dying of cancer, PA daily editorial accuses Israel of “deliberate medical neglect,” and “a war crime, exactly like the crime of the Nazi Holocaust”

Excerpt of editorial by the official PA daily

Headline: "A war crime"

"Prisoner Sami Abu Diak (i.e., terrorist, murdered 4) died as a Martyr in the occupation's prison. It was not the disease that ravaged the prisoner's body, but rather the policy of the Israeli jailors, who no longer take into consideration any human values or international laws. Aside from the systematic torture… the jailors' deliberate medical neglect stands out like a murder by a fatal stab in the back. This is exactly what happened to prisoner Martyr Abu Diak.

The assassination of prisoners in their prison is nothing but a war crime, exactly like the crime of the Nazi Holocaust that the world condemned, put its perpetrators on trial, and imposed a just sentence on them."

Sami Ahed Abu Diak - Palestinian prisoner arrested in 2002 during the 5-year PA terror campaign, the Intifada, and serving 3 life sentences and an additional 30 years. Abu Diak died in prison of cancer on Nov. 26, 2019; Israel had provided cancer treatment for him in prison. PMW has been unable to determine the details of his crimes.
