The Shalit Deal Continues to Haunt Us

There is abundant and growing cause to deeply regret the extorted decision that led to October 2011's mass release of unrepentant killers and other terrorists from Israeli prisons.
Newly released terrorists are welcomed in Ramallah, Sunday, Dec. 18, 2011, after Israel released them in the swap with Hamas which brought home Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit after being held captive for five years.

The following snippet from a longer Ynet analysis today of the worsening security situation in the Judea and Samaria districts underlines what we have been saying since the October 2011 deal between Israel and the terrorist Hamas regime was consummated in October 2011.

The IDF and Shin Bet’s near-complete intelligence network in the area has enabled the arrest of five terror cells in the Ramallah sector in the past four months alone, all of which were planning to abduct soldiers. The defense establishment believes the timing was not coincidental, as all of the plots were set to be executed on or around the anniversary marking the release of 1,027 Palestinian prisoners in the Shalit deal. The coming weeks will see dozens of former Palestinian prisoners return to the area, after the term of their imposed exile – stipulated in the deal – will end.

Over at the excellent Elder of Ziyon blog, there’s a fresh report that sharpens the point:

The father of the imprisoned terrorist Abdullah Barghouti says that that his son told him that Khaled Meshaal plans a “surprise” on the issue of prisoners in Israeli jails, without giving further details. The father said in an interview with Al-Quds TV morning this morning that his son told him the surprise will be revealed at the right time. According to him, Meshal told the mother of another prisoner, Hassan Salameh, during a meeting with families of prisoners on Sunday: “I swear to God, I swear to God, I swear to God, a plan to free all the prisoners in safety.” [More]

This Barghouti (several murdering terrorists have the same surname) is the one who assembled the explosive guitar case that murdered our daughter in the 2001 Sbarro massacre. The Hamas regime that controls Gaza proudly claimed, and continues to claim, credit for that slaughter of children.

There is abundant and growing cause to deeply regret the extorted decision that led to October 2011′s mass release of unrepentant killers and other terrorists from Israeli prisons.
