Israel’s Supreme Court rejects Suit against Freeing Terrorists

JewishPress Logo

Israel’s Supreme Court Tuesday, as expected, rejected a petition filed by families of terror victims against the release of 26 Palestinian Authority terrorists.

Supreme Court President Asher Grunis stated after the rejection of the petition, “There is no dispute that the issue at hand is difficult and sensitive. Our hearts go out to the families of the terror victims. But we are certain that the authorized officials made their decision with a heavy heart, taking the families’ position into account.”

The petition, filed by the Almagor Terror Victims Association on behalf of some of the families as well as by some individual families, said that the decision to release the terrorists should made by the entire Knesset through legislation and not by a small group of government ministers. The court said that the release of the convicted terrorists did not require legislation.

They were transferred late on Monday to the Ayalon Prison in Ramle, where they were to be processed for release. They are scheduled to be released no earlier than midnight on Tuesday and more likely early on Wednesday morning.

Some 14 prisoners will be transferred to Gaza, several of whom are members of Hamas.

    The formerly imprisoned terrorists will be welcomed back from the foolish, soft-hearted Israelis, and will be decorated, paraded, and pressed back into service to kill more Israelis. Israelis are fools to release  ANY convicted murderers.  Maybe a thief or two would do.  Arabs have plenty of them available for barter!  Israel ought to make use of them.  They’re not really dangerous, and they’re not worth feeding.  Send them home to their filth.  They deserve it.
