In Israel We Trade Terrorists Wholesale

The concept of trading convicted murderers for..well, for anything… is an Israeli innovation.

Israel routinely trades convicted terrorists for Peace; terrorists for Talks about Peace; and terrorists in return for Israeli hostages, alive and dead. Even for Ramadam – Israel routinely releases convicted terrorists.

In the current phase, Israel is trading three batches of convicted murderers for building permits in Judea and Samaria.

This is apparently some kind of good-will gesture to the Palestinians, to help negotiations along, either with or without the tacit approval of the USA.

The USA and Europe certainly go through the motions of strongly objecting (to the building, of course!).

Each time Israel releases terrorists, there are emotional & outraged appeals from the families of the victims of these murderers, demonstrations and protests from the Right Wing block, and redundant trips to the High Court – which has never, to my knowledge, over-ruled these clear violations of Justice and of the Justice System.

From the Palestinian side, obtaining the release of terrorists is hugely popular. Indeed, the more disgusting the acts of the terrorists, the more heroic and honourable they are to the Palestinian Authority and the populous.

The Palestinians apparently go along with the latest deal – Palestinian murderers exchanged for Israeli building permits.

This peculiar Israeli logic also works in reverse.

After acts of terrorism, “settlers” routinely will establish a new neighborhood or outpost, in memory of the victims, and as “the Zionist Response to terror”.

The moral equivalence, accepted by all parties, of Murder to Building is astonishing.

  1. Ben II says:

    Netanyahu is a pathetic coward.

  2. This land has been given to Israel forever by God. It is completely absurd to witness the whole world trying to give it away. When a peace like that IS made it won’t last as it won’t be a true peace and try’s to steal God’s land. The US desire to collaborate with Israel to verify that Iran is living up to it’s nuclear agreements would be the equivalent of Israel going along with the west’s fantasy that Iran is much farther behind than it is in it’s nuclear pursuits. The US proposal to patrol the west bank is also not a solid Idea as no one but the US will respect it; making the US a combatant rather than a peace broker. I believe that these types of decisions are likely going to lead to the war spoken of in Isaiah 17 or possibly another conflict, and a one world government will be set up eventually due in part to the demand for peace and economic concerns after it’s finish. An agreement with Israel and the Arabs will be made and will start the 7 year tribulation period. Three 1/2 years into the tribulation period Russia and an Iranian lead Muslim confederacy will invade Israel and reach down to Egypt but will be defeated by the west. China in recent years has become more determined to set up a hegemony of sorts in Asia and the Pacific. Now they have expanded their “air defense identification zone” to enforce their claims on the Islands they “currently” say are theirs. Rev 9:16 and Rev 16:12 states that the nations of the east will invade and have an army of 200 million men. The forces of the west under the anti-Christ will then fight against the kings of the east in the valley of Armageddon. China looks now to be the leader of that eastern coalition. I wrote a small 6 or 7 page book that talks about what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next
