Israel will not release the final round of terrorists on Saturday, Palestinian Authority official Jibril Rahoub is claiming, according to an AFP report.
Israel has not reacted to his statement, whether it is true or not, or if Israel is simply delaying the release.
The Israeli government is facing a lot of internal pressure to not release this fourth round of terrorists, which includes Israeli Arabs and some very horrible mass murderers.
The Palestinian Authority says that without the release of these terrorists, they will refuse to extend the U.S. brokered peace talks with Israel.
Israel pledged to the U.S. to release a total of 104 terrorists who murdered women, children, innocent civilians, IDF soldiers, US and Canadian citizens, and even fellow Arabs, in exchange for the Palestinian Authority sitting down to talk. Israel has release 78 terrorists so far.
Unfortunately, Jibril Rajoub’s choice of words may indicate the release is only postponed, and not cancelled.
