Israel made a deadly mistake.They should have told Obama that no prisoners will be released, until and after Abbas has sat with the Israelis to talk peace.
Once peace is signed, then release those murderers.
But will Abbas keep to his word of peace, even after he has signed an agreement.
Did Arafat not sign a peace agreement and immediately started the Intifada which resulted in hundreds of deaths on both sides
But Abbas must agree that israel is the Jewish state..
Once a PA state is born, then no matter, mr Abbas, no Jew would like to live in a PA state.
PM Netanyahu. DO NOT TRUST ABBAS, NOR OBAMA.
International diplomacy is really not my forte, but it seems crazy to release prisoners and get nothing in return. This country (USA) is ruled by a 'president' who is very sympathetic to muslims and is probably one himself. Israel has always been our ally and will remain so long after the 'president of some' is gone. I sincerely apologize for what a few have done.
Apparently some Israeli judges are self-possessed of the same socialist poison that judges in America apply as the welfare state destroys one family and one community after another here, in spite of all common sense and order. It is a direct result of rejecting the 10 Commandments and it is a mental illness. These people should not hold positions of authority.
