Maisara Abu Hamdiyeh: A Life Sentence

Maisara Abu Hamdiyeh, a  member of the Hamas terror group has died of cancer in the Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba.  An autopsy revealed that a malignant tumor in his vocal chords had metastasized throughout his body.  He had been serving a life sentence in an  Israeli prison since  2002 on charges of attempted murder, membership in a banned organization and illegal possession of firearms as a result of his role in the attempted bombing of a restaurant Caffit in Jerusalem’s German Colony.

 A Prison Service spokesperson  said Abu Hamdeya died in a hospital in southern Israel on Tuesday. After doctors diagnosed his cancer as terminal,  an early release process was begun.

Extremist groups from around the world attempted to use this man's death from cancer to fan the flames of hate

American Muslims for Palestine reported:
The American Muslims for Palestine today mourns the death of Palestinian political prisoner Maysara Abu Hamdiyeh, who died from cancer after Israeli prison authorities denied him access to medical treatment.

Media reports indicate Abu Hamdiyeh had throat cancer, which spread to his spinal cord.
Issa Qaraqe, the Palestinian Authority minister of prisons, said Abu Hamdiyeh's cancer spread because he did not receive treatment earlier, Maan News reported...

Today, AMP offers our deepest condolences to the Abu Hamdiyeh’s family
They mourn the death of a man who once targeted  families with children, eating in a popular restaurant. They offer condolences to the family of the man who targeted innocent civilians..  They whitewash his atrocities. They eliminate context. There is not a moment's thought of compassion for his intended victims, who were targeted as Jews, guilt only of living their lives in their ancient homeland.

 Our "partner for peace", the "moderate " PA President Mahmoud Abbas told Fatah leaders in Ramallah "Today, we were surprised to hear about the martyrdom of prisoner Abu Hamdiyeh,”

And again, the streets of the West bank were filled with rioters.
