Al Mahrum is now celebrated as one of the more prominent hunger strikers in prison.
Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah Facebook page highlighted a news story from the official Palestinian news agency WAFA about how awful his family situation is because of his imprisonment and how difficult life is for his wife and mother.

You can be sure that 99% of the "pro-Palestinian" protesters who say how awful Israel treats the Palestinians do not live in homes this nice.

He went on on his own hunger strike and escaped from the hospital in 1990, managing to get to Bulgaria where he married and had a nice life until Israel requested his extradition. He fled to the Palestinian embassy in Bulgaria where he was not very welcome and then was found dead under mysterious circumstances.)
