Terror Victim Heckles Netanyahu at Yom HaZikaron Ceremony

A victim of Arab terror disrupted Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech at today’s Memorial Day service at Mount Herzl.

Rami Cohen was stabbed by an Arab in 2000, during the early stages of the Oslo War (second “intifada”). Today, he wants answers about the release of hundreds of murderers in order to cajole the PLO to negotiate with Israel over the past nine months.

“How could you release the killers of our children?” Cohen shouted at the prime minister.

Netanyahu did not address the fact that the prisoner releases failed to appease Palestinian Authority leader Abu Mazen, and failed to secure any Palestinian recognition of Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish country. But the prime minister appeared unfazed by the interruption, and said he’d expected to be challenged about the prisoner release.

“The decision we made was a tough one, one that stands in contrast to the values of justice,” Netanyahu said. “The tough reality of this region has forced Israeli governments for decades to make decisions like this one that are too tough to bear.

“(But) I viewed it as my responsibility as the prime minister of Israel to stand here to day together with you, on Yom HaZikaron with our fallen loved ones. I salute you and wish you a speedy recovery. May the memories of all terror victims be blessed forever,” Netanyahu said.

    I very much doubt that any more terrorists will be released until they have served their designated sentences.
