An Excerpt from “Fighting Terrorism”, 2001 Edition, by Benjamin Netanyahu, page 144.

Among the most important policies which must be adopted in the face of terrorism is the refusal to release convicted terrorists from prisons. This is a mistake that Israel, once the leader in anti-terror techniques, has made over and over again.

Release of convicted terrorists before they have served their full sentences seems like an easy and tempting way of defusing blackmail situations in which innocent people may lose their lives. But its utility is momentary at best.

Prisoner releases only embolden terrorists by giving them the feeling that even if they are caught their punishment will be brief.

Worse, by leading terrorists to think such demands are likely to be met, they encourage precisely the kind of terrorist blackmail which they are supposed to defuse: All that Timothy McVeigh’s compatriots need to know is that the the United States government is susceptible to releasing him in exchange for the lives of innocent hostages in order to get the terrorists to make just such a demand; only the most unrelenting refusal to ever give in to such blackmail can prevent most such situations from arising.

  3. I hope that Netanyahu will not make such a foolish mistake now. Releasing murderers to murder again?

  4. Benjamin Sherr says:

    Bibi has become a political whore. Enough of
    the PC nicities. The first responsiblilty of a nation is to protect it's citizens!! If he dose't understand, throw him out

  5. Freeing of jailed terrorists is the most unwise thing Israel could do in the actual precarious situation. It’s not a proper manner to begin (doubtful) talks with the PA. The PA don’t deserve such a gesture, and the terrorists themselves should have been placed on the death-row long ago.

  6. It is difficult to understand why Obama and hi leckayers don't trust Israel, the only place in Midle East, why to pressure to Israel, when all we see what is happening in Lybia, Tunesia, Irak, Syria, Egypt, Yemen, Pakystan, Afgahnistan, Iran, etc:, why Israel don't trust, Netanayhu if you have the balls ignore this blackmailing from Obama and his leckayers, don't release this cruel cowardly terroris murders, in case you do, you are not good more the post you get from the Israeli people, have the balls, resigning, this must not so difficult, should other PM with balls that can say "enough".

  7. Len Frankel says:

    Is hypocrit too strong a word to describe Netanyahu, or is it too weak?

  8. Eva Feld says:

    Why does Israel always have tp "give in", releasing terrorists, giving up land, stopping developments? What does Abbas give? Peace? You is kidding, security that Hamas and Al Queada will stop shelling Israel? Abbas and his likes are dumb to the reality of things. Israel does employ Arabs, gives them better pay, promotions and a future. Israel gives the Arabs, whoever they are, from wherever they are from, medical care, the women prefer birthing in Israel, doesn't Abas know that? Of course he does? He is under the proverbial "gun" himself. But Israel has to give? Abbas wake up, do something with the country you have an throw the "garbage" out.

    The Jews have always felt guilty about everything in the world. Name the problem and the Jews feel guilty. Why is it that so many Jews voted for the Democrats even when these same Democrats like Barack Hussein Obama hates the Jews and hates Israel. Maybe it is best if Israel vacates Israel and the Jews go somewhere else. I wonder if Madagascar is still open?

    DC is better, it will infuriate Barack Hussein.

  12. Alan Kardon says:

    Because it is easier to push Israel around than the Arab terrorists.

  13. We don't know what is going on behind the scenes, but must support the government. Enough Israelis have been killed.

    On the other hand, many of these guys have been in over 20 years and played peripheral roles.

    Terrorists must not be caught, they must be eliminated in the site, immediately, so later on there will be no problem wether to release them or not. Remember an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.

  15. Wy not releasing Pollard hope spelling ok same time

  16. Terrorists executed on site, or by public execution either way not allowed to live, then all these demands for their release can no longer happen. Mr. BN suggest from now on execution of terrorists carried out immediately.

  18. Cody Flecker says:

    The real issue is that the Jews worldwide maintain a Ghetto mentality. The Jewish People lived in these Ghettos for centuries, and certainly had to make their own lives being apart from the general population. Regardless of these handicaps, the Jews as a Nation apart, gave the world remarkable accomplishments. Instead of feeling grateful for these modern developments, the general Christian population look at the Jews with great fear. When the Jews come to America is great numbers especially during the 1880's and thereafter, the first thing they shed were their chains of the past. Their names changed, their faces (noses) changed. their occupations changed, and much more importantly, their religious views changed. Coming from a religious background these Jews en masse became Reformed overnight until they entered modern day Christianity and other religions. This is one reason why so many Jews support the modern day Democratic Party, along with its great anti semitic President. Anything to remind these Jews from where they came from.

  19. Cody Flecker , Did th Jews choose to live in Ghettos? If others forced them to live there and as a result WE THE JEWS developed a condition, whose fault is it?

  21. Who is behind the release?
    Does anyone believe that BN woke up one morning and decided to do something foolish? Those who pushed him know that it is not going to lead to a change in the Palestinian demands and that it is suicidal to BN. They did not foresee the consequences but they may see it now… through the windows of the closed embassies.
