The following appeared in the PA daily on in an article dedicated to the “suffering” of Quntar in and Israeli prison:

“Samir Quntar, a name of pride in the history of the prisoners of the [Palestinian] national movement. A name that he created, during the resistance in Lebanon and the hours of heroism in Nahariya [terrrorist attack in which Dani Haran and his daughters were murdered] a name that is written in the blood that dripped in the interrigation dungeons.
[Quntar] wrote the noble history of this name in letters of fire and light during the battles of the struggle… [Quntar] was and will continue to be a beacon of light for us and for the generations to come and an authentic role model. Every day that passes Samir’s pride grows, and our pride in him grows greater and greater.” [Al-Hayat Al- Jadida, May, 6, 2004] (PMW.ORG.IL 05/09/04)
