Supreme Court Rejects Appeal to Keep Terrorists in Jail

Israel’s Supreme Court rejected Thursday evening an appeal by victims of terror to stop the government from going ahead with its plan to free another 26 terrorists on Sunday.

The petitioners, whose parents and three of their brothers and sisters were murdered in a terrorist attack in Jerusalem in 2001, argued that the swap of 1,000 terrorists for the return of Gilad Shalit from captivity proved that many of those release from jail return to terrorism.

The court did not reject or accept the argument and ruled, as in previous cases of government releases of terrorists, that the issue involves security and is not in the jurisdiction of the court to interfere.

The Netanyahu government is going ahead with the third batch four releases of 104 terrorists for the stated reason of continuing talks with the Palestinian Authority, within the framework set down in July by  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
