A Palestinian terrorist who escaped from an Israeli prison 25 years ago is now being given shelter in the PA’s consulate in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria.
The terrorist is Omar Nayef Zayed, who was convicted in 1986 of murdering an Israeli yeshiva student. He started a hunger strike in 1990, which resulted in the Israeli authorities admitting him to a hospital in Bethlehem. He escaped from the hospital, slipped out of the country, and made his way to Bulgaria.

This of course is par for the course. Flatow points out that according to the Oslo II agreement [Annex IV, Article 2, Par.7(f)(1)] that Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and the PA signed in 1995, the PA is obligated to comply with every Israeli request for extradition.
Meanwhile, the expected excuses -- and outright deceptions -- are being utilized on Zayed's behalf.
Zayed's brother makes Omar Zayed's murder out to be a political act:
Zayed is "a political fighter who defended the Palestinian cause" and he "poses no danger" to Israel today, Hamza added.This is a theme that Samidoun, which calls itself the "Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network", goes to town on. Samidoun neglects to mention that Zayed is a murderer:
Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network emphasizes that this is a political attack on former Palestinian prisoners. It should not be seen as an individual case only, but an attempt by the Israeli state to persecute former Palestinian prisoners and invade Palestinian communities throughout Europe. Like all Palestinian prisoners, Omar’s case is a political case and not a “criminal case.” Extraditions for political offenses are not legitimate and should be denied.Whatever excuses apologists for the terrorist Omar Nayef Zayed make, whatever emotional appeals these terrorist sympathizers make, the question still remains: Why it is that around the world and throughout history it is only the Palestinian Arabs who praise and celebrate murderers of unarmed civilians as freedom fighters.
