Erekat: First 26 Arab Terrorist Prisoners to be Released Aug. 13

Saeb Erekat has told the Arab Palestinian newspaper Ma’an that the first 26 of 104 Arab prisoners will be released in a little more than a week, on August 13, according to the Arab news outlet Maan.

Erekat, the chief negotiator for the Arabs, said that the 104 prisoners will be released in four stages. Israel has said the continued release of prisoners will depend on the progress made in the discussions.

The Israeli families of those murdered by the Arab prisoners their government threatens to release continue attempts to stop the government from going ahead with it.

The first meeting in the renewed talks between the Israelis and the Arab Palestinians took place last week in Washington, with secretary of state John Kerry playing the eager host.

The next meeting is expected to be held during the second week of August.  Member of Knesset, Justice Minister and chief negotiator for Israel, Tzippi Livni, said on Saturday that the next meetings will rotate between locations in Israel and in the disputed territories.

Erekat also said that he and his negotiating team are insisting that all final status issues be put on the negotiating table during the current discussions.  Those issues include Jerusalem, refugees, water and settlements.

The talks have a nine month timetable, but the timing is far less of an issue than is the question of how the parties will handle the tough issues, which include every one that the Arab Palestinians insisted would be covered during these discussions.

    I would like to see these 26 working for John and Thesesa Heinz Kerry in their homes, boat

  2. Brilliant idea! Problem is they are already hired by the White House.

  3. If they are to get bad guys back, thery must give something in return.

  4. Cody Flecker says:

    Three comments, and three jokes. This is not a joke to release murderers anywhere in the world, much less to the Fakestinians. Israel by doing this action is literally cutting their own throats. If two parties cannot come to the peace table as equals, then there really is no peace table. What are the Fakestinians giving up? Nothing but hot air.

    I can believe this as Kerry was a coward in Nam and would spit in his coward face what a idiot.

  7. Nonononono, enough, don't release any one, Israel is giving up in peaces to the Palestinians, no no no no no, start first with a finger, than two fingers, three fingers, four fingers, five fingers, hand, low arm, elbow, uper arm, and so on untill to dissapeare, no no no no no.

  8. Alan Kardon says:

    Polls show that Israelis are against the release of terrorists. So who does the Prime Minister and Knesset represent? Maybe there should be a vote on this issue?

    What, another 9/11?

    Yes, these Arab terrorists should be released. They should be released at 20,000 feet over the Mediterranean.

  15. There is no need for the Arabs to continue figuring out how to destroy Israel. Why, Israel is doing it for them. If Netanyahu is so eager to align himself with weak leadership a la Peres and Livni, then sign the country over to the Palestinians and move on. I would rather them do that, than continue this long, drawn out ordeal known as the "peace talks." Why stop at one hundred and four terrorists being released. If you are going to do it. do it the right way and release them all. After that, they could not only return to the 67' borders, but all the land left over can be given to the Palestinians I know the Arabs have been interested in Jerusalem for a long time. Maybe we could have an auction and who ever has the highest bid takes it. A ruin off election between the Palestinians and Hamas might work. They could have a coalition government. I have been a supporter of Israel. But, if they are going to make self destructive and foolish decisions, I won't waste my time. I can't support a country that doesn't have enough self respect and pride to do what's right for themselves, not what outside political adversaries dictate.

    Kerry will more than likely kiss every terrorist's ass to show his love for their past acts…………………………….

    So much for secrecy, what price will the PA have to pay for leaking this information? Kerry and Indyk will do nothing about the leak, there will be no punishment and the PA now knows it can get away with anything.

  19. I read quite recently Israel was working towards making available water, of course this would be so much easier if Israel didn't have to deal with so called Palestinians, who could become Israeli citizens? Dispute over? As for Erekat, he is a lying snake, who has publicly admitted on FB he wishes to Palestinianize Israel, remove every Jew, Christian as Islamists are doing across the globe. The world media is not reporting the persecution of Christians by Arabs and Africans. So I guess this isn't happening. Israel must be one nation, not two states, kids as young as five are being taught to hate Jews and Israel. Mr. BN much as I admire you I fail to see where you are going with the snake Erekat, and puppet Abbas. Israel is simply making a fool of herself, the icing on the cake paying attention to Ashton and EU, 2020 is way down the line. Things will be very different in 2020, that is if we all survive WWIII which is immanent. Nations cannot take the domination of Islam for much longer. To hell with the price of OIL what is the price for peace?
