PA governor calls terrorist murderer a “hero” and repeats medical abuse libel

Official PA TV News, on a rally in support of terrorist prisoner Muhammad Adel Daoud, who murdered a pregnant woman and her 5-year-old son

Qalqilya District Governor Rafe’ Rawajbeh: “[Muhammad Daoud] (i.e., terrorist, murdered pregnant woman and her 5-year-old son) is suffering from oppression and pain and is also sick, and the prison management is medically neglecting him intentionally and is avoiding providing the medical treatment (sic., see note below regarding PA libel on medical abuse of Palestinian prisoners) that is required for this heroic prisoner who is a living example of the rest of the sick, elderly, female, and child prisoners, and I think that this is a planned policy by this occupation in order to kill the prisoners while they are still alive.”

Muhammad Adel Daoud - Palestinian terrorist who murdered Ofra Moses, who was pregnant, and her 5-year-old son, Tal Moses, by throwing a Molotov cocktail at their car on April 11, 1987. Daoud is serving a life sentence.

Libel on medical abuse of Palestinian prisoners - the PA claims that Israel abuses Palestinian prisoners, through medical neglect, medical experiments, and by intentionally infecting them with diseases. However, the International Red Cross regularly visits these prisoners and has not documented or accused Israel of any of these claims. Likewise, lists of demands occasionally issued by the prisoners during hunger strikes - such as during one in 2011 - include no demands relating to these claims. PMW has documented prisoners talking about how they "lack nothing" in the prisons, and that "the worst thing about Israeli prison" is riding in a prison vehicle that has no padding on the seat. When PMW contacted the Israeli Ministry of Health in 2007 regarding PA claims of medical experiments on prisoners, the ministry responded: "Clinical testing on prisoners in prison was never approved, never performed, and is most certainly not taking place at present."
