So the Arabs claim that the IDF is at fault.
Good riddance, to a terrorist: How a terrorist who murdered two Israeli teenagers became a ‘senior Palestinian official’ whose death sparked PA outrage.
”Abu Ein himself was handed a life sentence in Israel in 1982 after being extradited from the US in 1981 over the murder of two Israelis in Tiberias in 1979. Abu Ein planted the explosives which killed the two – Boaz Lahav and David Lankri.”
Abu Ein previously held the post of PA Deputy Minister of Prisoners’ Affairs.
In June he said that ministry was being transferred to Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) control, hinting it was being done to dupe foreign donors and avoid attention over the fact that the PA was bankrolling jailed terrorists.
“We eliminated the international pressure and the attempts to tamper with this issue,” Abu Ein declared. “The (PA) leadership wants to keep this holy issue away from the influence of the donor countries, the interference of the donor countries, and the occasional negative influence of the donor countries.”
Abu Ein once claimed that conditions in Israeli prisons were “worse than the Auschwitzes of the Nazis.”
PA ‘Suspends Coordination’ after Official Dies in Clash with IDF
By Gil Ronen, Ari Yashar
A senior Palestinian Authority (PA) official died Wednesday, after he apparently suffered a heart attack during a “protest march” in Samaria. Arab sources claim he was struck by soldiers.
Channel 2 news‘s website cited PA sources who said that PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas has decided to suspend security coordination with Israel as a result.
According to left-wing Haaretz, which had a correspondent on the scene, sources close to Ziad Abu Ein said that he had high blood pressure and diabetes. The newspaper also said that Abu Ein had been leading a protest march against the existence of a Jewish village, Adei Ad, and that he appeared to be in good health as he led the Arab protesters, who tried to force their way past an IDF contingent. He did not seem to have been affected by tear gas fired at the protester earlier, Haaretz reported. Some pushing and shoving ensued, and Abu Ein walked away and sat down.
When he showed signs of distress, he was approached by a female IDF paramedic but refused her help and asked to be evacuated to a Ramallah hospital.
