By Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik.. For a released Palestinian terrorist who murdered 3 Israeli soldiers, the 27 years he spent in Israeli prisons was his ticket to higher education. Terrorist murderer Hilal Jaradat:
“In prison I studied at the Hebrew University in the history and political science faculties. I read approximately 6,000 books in prison, and I translated for many of the prisoners.” [Donia Al-Watan, independent Palestinian news agency, Jan. 26, 2017] While in prison he also developed an interest in learning foreign languages: “I began with Hebrew and English and then I moved on to many languages such as Russian, Spanish, and French, until I reached approximately 16 languages.”

Jaradat was released by Israel in 2011, as part of the Shalit prisoner exchange deal brokered between the Israeli government and Hamas. In that deal, Israel released 1,027 Palestinian prisoners in exchange for Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who had been held hostage by Hamas for more than 5 years.
Another prisoner likewise took advantage of his imprisonment to earn a B.A. while serving time:
“Prisoner Imad Al-Athamneh is married and a father of six children, and he earned a high school diploma and a bachelor’s degree in history inside prison.” [Khabar, independent Palestinian news agency, Feb. 22, 2017]
Since 2011, Israel has no longer given Palestinian terrorist prisoners access to higher education. Appeals made by prisoners to Israel’s Supreme Court in 2012 and in 2015 were denied on the grounds that prisoners do not have a constitutional right to be allowed to study. Read the full story.
