On the Short-Sightedness of Sweeping Terrorism Concerns Under the Carpet

Rabinovich added: “We have a weak Palestinian side with question marks about its desire and ability to reach a final-status agreement… In the background there is Hamas, which is capable of sabotaging a settlement, if it were achieved.”

Is this the time then for Netanyahu to again make a mockery of our judiciary? To discard, at his whim, well-reasoned court convictions and sentences? To endanger civilians who will be the future targets of these hardened terrorists? To embolden terror groups – for whatever political gain Netanyahu hopes to reap?

Netanyahu’s soft-spot for terrorist murderers is shared by his adversary, Mahmoud Abbas. In an interview last week with Israel’s Channel 2, Abbas defended his meeting with Fatah’s Amana Mouna. Mouna, convicted of seducing an Israeli youth and then murdering him, was released in the Shalit deal. “She did a deed; was punished, freed and the matter ended.”

“She is still a woman,” said Abbas, “still a Palestinian, still a human being.” He continued: “And I meet her and am concerned for her.”

Is this very different from the decision of our leaders to enable Ahlam Tamimi to marry her fiancé and start her family?

At this point is it reasonable to wonder whether Netanyahu is friend or foe?

To commemorate Remembrance Day, Netanyahu has, so generously, dealt us yet another blow.

Yitzhak Shamir and Benyamin Netanyahu

Several days ago, our Prime Minister’s indulgence toward terrorists resurfaced. Netanyahu, we learned, is primed to free another 123 prisoners incarcerated in Israel since before the Oslo Accords. Most of them are Fatah members who have been in imprisoned for 25 to 35 years after being convicted of involvement in terrorist attacks in which Israelis were killed. The goal is to woo Mahmoud Abbas back to the negotiating table.

Why, we demand to know, did this government secretly delete the condition of the murderer Nazir al-Tamimi’s release?

Shortly before the Palestinian parliamentary elections, Israel Prison Service head Yaakov Ganot approved a series of television interviews in which Barghouti dropped incendiary lines like “I support the Palestinian intifada and Palestinian resistance.” The word “remorse” seems not to be in his lexicon.
