PA Terrorist Who Bombed Tel Aviv Bus Sentenced to 25 Years

The Palestinian Authority terrorist convicted last year of bombing a bus in Tel Aviv in 2012 was sentenced on Monday to 25 years in jail. The explosion on the local bus wounded 28 people.

The terrorist, Mohammed Mafarji and who was 18 years old when he bombed the bus, said he carried out the attack during the Pillar of Defense counter terrorist operation in Gaza as an act of revenge for the death of a Hamas terrorist commander.

The sentence was handed down after plea bargaining, which included a promise that the jail sentence would not be no more than 25 years.

Assuming Israel does not free him sooner as a “goodwill concession” to Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas or U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, and if Mafarji behaves nicely in jail, he probably will be released long before 25 years pass.

  1. no more-should have gotten life with no chance of parole

  2. Anonymous says:

    And he'll no doubt be out within a year, if John Kerry has anything to say about it. Very sad.

  3. Ronnie Pleet says:

    Never let him be part of an exchange

  4. Any terrorist found guilty in killing or bombing should be executed. How long would the terrorists carry on with their violence if they knew that on conviction they would be executed. Prison sentences knowing that they will be exchanged for "peace talks," do not work. When they are released
    they go back to killing and maiming. Death sentences are the solution.

  5. hopefully, the information this scum provided was worth the plea bargain instead of a bullet in the head that he deserves. well, he's an informer so maybe the other arab killers will murder him in prison. that would be good.

  6. Twenty five years is too compassionate a sentence for this terrorist. He will only be 43 when he gets out. That gives him plenty of time to go back to being a terrorist bomber.

  7. Dana Feltner says:

    Just like a coward, why didn’t he stick around for those “virgins”,?, blinded brainwashed lunatics,!, easy background check on these nut jobs,!

  8. I imagine, like others before him, President Hussein Obama will urge Israel to release this murderer too, in order to buy the 'ever out-of-reach peace', militants won't allow their people to enjoy. Maybe most Middle East Arab Muslims would prefer a peaceful co-existence, we don't know because so many 'tribes' are heavily armed and are willing to accept their own collateral damage in the fruitless, relentless, foolish, meanhearted drive to kill their neighbors who merely want to co-exist peacefully. Israel provides medical care, jobs and educational opportunities not only to its citizens but also to those who come seeking refuge.

  9. Yori Mendel says:

    Redo his Sentence, to 100 Years plus One Day.

  10. Why not death penalty to this kind of crime?

  11. This guy maimed and threatened to kill a bus load of people. He should get life in prison.

  12. He and the others should be hung.

  13. Reyna Cohen says:

    Life without parole

  14. Artie Brown says:

    It's not really 25 years…..
    It's just until the PLO asks for more terrorists to be released in exchange for fake peace talks!
