Since when does it make sense to think that releasing terrorists will achieve peace in the long-troubled Middle East?
Last week it was announced that Israel will not release a fourth batch of 26 Palestinian security prisoners (aka terrorists) as was stipulated under the framework deal that led to the renewal of Middle East negotiations last July.
Against this backdrop there are reports that the Palestinians are pressuring Israel to release a mass murderer — Marwan Barghouti — who is currently serving five life sentences for masterminding terror attacks against Israelis.
Barghouti, who openly supports terrorism, was responsible for an attack at a Tel Aviv seafood market restaurant in which three people were murdered, and a car bomb attack in Jerusalem. This is a man who belongs in jail for his whole life, not released in the “interest of peace.” Could there be a bigger mockery of justice or of decency?
This is the “peace” process which John Kerry and the Obama administration shove down Israel’s throats. While President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority will not recognize Israel, he also demands that the killers of Israelis be released.
Peace in our times.
The American State Department encourages terror by giving in to terrorists. These terrorists who are opposed to Judeo-Christian civilization are hell-bent on committing acts of terror.
How can anyone expect that releasing murderers will achieve peace? These “peace seekers” pressure Israel and preach to the Jews about the need for reconciliation. It is difficult to not feel disgust.
