One of the signs of the Palestinian Authority's successful indoctrination of its population to admire terrorists who have murdered civilians, is when parents of terrorists openly say they are "proud" of their terrorist sons, or describe their actions as "honorable."

The parents of Islamic Jihad member Muhammad Aql who recruited and prepared the suicide bombers who attacked a bus at Karkur Junction near Hadera on Oct. 21, 2002, murdering 14 and wounding 50, are such parents. When interviewed on official P.A. TV, they described his actions as bringing them "honor."
 

Mother of terrorist prisoner Muhammad Aql: "Our hope is that Allah will release them from prison. These are heroes we raise our heads thanks to them ... "

Father of terrorist prisoner Muhammad Aql: "Praise Allah, he is imprisoned for an action that honors us, and not for anything else."

Terrorist Aql was also involved in additional shooting and bombing attacks, and is serving 14 life sentences.

By law, the P.A. pays Aql and thousands of other terrorist prisoners a monthly salary, as documented by Palestinian Media Watch.


These terrorist salaries start at 1,400 shekels a month and increase until reaching 12,000 shekels a month. For 2018, the P.A. has budgeted 7.47 percent of its operational budget for salaries to terrorist prisoners, released terrorists, and payments to families of "martyrs" and the wounded.

PMW's documentation of the P.A.'s payment system played a crucial role in the passing of a recent law in Israeli Parliament to deduct the amount of money the P.A. pays imprisoned terrorists and families of "martyrs" from the tax money Israel collects for the P.A.

PMW reported recently that official P.A. TV honored three imprisoned terrorists who participated in the Ramallah lynch of two Israeli reserve soldiers in 2000 as "heroic."
