Qatar - A split-screen photo posted to an Arab journalist’s Facebook page of an emaciated Syrian prisoner matched-up against a photo of a robust Israeli prisoner has gone viral and is drawing praise for Israel’s treatment of its prisoners from the Arab world.

The photo appeared on the Facebook page of al-Jazeera journalist Faisal al-Qassem after notorious Palestinian terrorist and former Israeli inmate, Samir Kuntar, was killed Saturday night during an alleged Israeli airstrike in Lebanon.

Kuntar, who is seen on the right leaving an Israeli prison in 2008 after serving more than 29 years for killing four Israelis, is clearly in good health as opposed to the skeletal Assad-regime Syrian prisoner.

Kuntar, who, according to some Hebrew sources, obtained a masters and a PhD through university-affiliated online programs while in Israeli custody, was part of a prisoner exchange with Hezbollah that saw the return of the bodies of two IDF soldiers.

Text accompanying the viral post read, “Samir Kuntar left an Israeli prison with a beer belly and a doctorate. At the other extreme, this is how Syrians leave Assad’s prisons.”

Arabian Business Magazine ranked Faisal al-Qassem as one of the top most influential Arab personalities.

Now post a picture of the boys who are being tortured by their own kapo brethren. Rivlin himself admitted there's no evidence on them. Israel a democracy? I'm ashamed and feel like crying each time I think of those poor boys. All because Israel has a huge chip on the back about having the guts like these boys do, to say Israel was given to the Jews by Gd, end of story.

Every time someone uses the term Kapo/ nazi "v'k-flimsy"and such, I automatically judge u wrong and the other side right.
What a terrible person you are.
Most people on this site has their grandparents humiliated and then gassed or experimented on by the nazis. Not some prison stay for a week or two or whatever.
Shame on you that you trample on their memories just because you want to prove a point and don't know how.

Great that this is being 'spun' as praise for Israel, but for some desperate people with bleak life prospects, this might be a contributing factor in incitement to do something to end up in an Israeli jail. Prison should not be marketed as some paradise university for homosexuals.
