From Times of Israel:
A video clip showing convicted Palestinian terrorists celebrating the engagement of one of their own in an Israel prison was posted to the Internet and has been raising ire over the conditions granted the convicts by the Israeli authorities.By the way, that last statement is yet more proof of the honor/shame culture that Arabs live in. The PA is not denying that Palestinian Arab terrorists in prison have an easy life - they are just upset that people can now watch a video of it. That is how honor/shame works; appearances are more important than reality.
The story was broken by the Hakol Hayehudi website on Tuesday before it was reported on by the mainstream Hebrew media. The video was apparently filmed with a cellphone smuggled into the prison against regulations.
The focus of the video is Samar Abu Kwick, who is serving three life sentences in Eshel Prison for terror attacks against Israelis during the Second Intifada.
In the undated clip, several inmates are seen gathered in a cell around tables laid out with drinks and snacks, reportedly to celebrate Kwick’s engagement. As music blares in the background, the inmates greet Kwick with hugs and kisses before settling down to enjoy the feast.
Kwick was convicted of murdering Sarah Lisha and the two IDF soldiers Elad Valenstein and Amit Zana in a 2000 terror attack at the Halamish junction in the West Bank.
Maariv cited Palestinian Authority sources who expressed disapproval of the video, saying it depicted life on the inside as being pleasant and could result in a tightening of conditions.
“People who watch the video can fall under the impression that life in Israeli prisons is easy and all they do all the time is have parties and feasts,” the Palestinian sources were quoted as saying.
