Masochist Gov’t Set for More ‘Pain’ by Freeing PA Terrorists

Israel insisted in July that it would release 104 terrorists in four stages as a test of Abbas’ willingness for peace. Three murders and two attempted murders later, Israel will bow to Kerry for stage two.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will be fighting members within his coalition next week over the next stage of the release of 104 Palestinian Authority terrorists and security prisoners, the first batch of which was freed in July in return for the resumption of talks between negotiators for a peace agreement with the Palestinian Authority.

It was a heart-wrenching moment in July when the Cabinet approved by a 13-7 margin the release, not in return for dead bodies and not in return for live bodies, but in return for digging up the corpse of the “peace process’ to carry out attempts of resuscitation.

After all the sickening comments of the “painful” decision that tore Israeli apart emotionally, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu promised that the next batch of terrorists would not be released unless Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas showed he is sincere for peace.

Since that masochistic and sadistic moment of the release of more terrorists convicted and jailed for some of the worse terrorist attacks ever committed in Israel, Palestinian Authority terrorists have murdered three Israelis, two of them soldiers and one of them a retired colonel. They have attempted to kill a nine-year-old girl and have tried to run over a soldier with a tractor. They have held a Haredi Jew at knifepoint on a bus for several seconds until fleeing, and they have thrown hundreds of rocks and firebombs at passing Jewish motorists.

Abbas did not express any regret for the murders and in fact often praised the terrorists.

But all of this is nothing compared with his glorious achievement of keeping up the peace talk charade for several weeks.

For U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, that is proof the man really wants peace, and let’s not let a few terrorist attacks get in the way.

After all, Kerry reasons, Abbas is a real giant for agreeing to talk at all considering that Israel continues to announce new building for Jews in those settlements that President Obama calls ”illegitimate” because they contradict American policy that sees Jews in Judea and Samaria as a threat to the security of Americans from New York to East Podunk. According to the State Dept., those terrorist attacks would not have occurred if Israel simply had folded up and gone away years ago.

The magic date for the release of the next batch of killers is next Tuesday.

The same seven ministers who voted against the decision to release the 104 terrorists are fighting Netanyahu again, but have no fear, Mr. Kerry. Israeli negotiator Yitzchak Molcho has assured everyone that the Prime Minister is a strong man and will resist pressure to stop the blood-letting of allowing more terrorists to get back to business and organize more terrorist attacks.

That way, Israel can arrest them again and let Abbas talk to win their release again.

Doesn’t that make sense?

It does not make sense to Likud ministers Gilad Erdan, Yisrael Katz, Yisrael Beiteinu ministers Uzi Landau and Yair Shamir, and Jewish Home ministers Naftali Bennett, Uri Ariel and Uri Orbach. All of them voted against the “painful” release of murderers. No painkillers were handed out to the relatives of the victims who died in the suicide bombings, firebombings and shooting attacks carried out and organized by the terrorists.

But Netanyahu has on his side a majority who like pain.

They are Likud ministers Yuval Steinitz, Moshe Ya’alon and Gideon Sa’ar; Yisrael Beitenu ministers Sofa Landver and Yitzchak Aharonvitch; Yesh Atid ministers Yair Lapid, Yael German, Yaakov Peri, Shai Piron and Meir Cohen; and two ministers from Tzipi Livni’s HaTunah party, Livni and sidekick Amir Peretz.

The two cowards who abstained in the July vote are Likud ministers Silvan Shalom and Limor Livnat.

Assuming Netanyahu wins the day rather than being the loser in Kerry’s “blame game” strategy, the ministers will have approved freeing terrorists such as Ayman  Sharuna, who was sentenced to 38 years in prison in 2002 for a Be’er Sheva bombing that wounded 18 people and for several shooting attacks.

Israeli officials apparently did not feel enough pain in 2011 when they authorized his release along with 1,000 other terrorists for the return of kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Shalit.

They did not feel enough pain when they freed him again last March after he had been arrested for returning to terror, as reported here.  Why on earth would Sharuna  have done such a dastardly think as to return to terror when he actually signed a promise not to do?

Tch-tch. How painful.

    Good!

    Not good about the impending release…good article!

  3. Cody Flecker says:

    As a Zionist all my life, and stern supporter of the State of Israel, I must state for the record that this Israeli Government is worse than the Nazis ever were towards the Jewish People. Knowing that the murderers will be released puts shivers down my spine. For this crazy and stupid action, I am calling on all Jews worldwide to boycott Israel and its Government. This Israel must be destroyed, and a new Israel be put in its place. A New Israel that will truly protect its people and not worry whether an anti semite like Obama or Kerry give its approval for Israeli actions.

  4. What is going on to the Israel's people?, is there in Israel a dictatorship like Erdogan in Turkey?, the coward Netanyahu is trying to get the "Peace Nobel Price", why is not there a "Cowardice Nobel Perice"?, becouse this price should get Netanyahu and his leckayers, is a shame for the jewish herency, that is why the jews shames to be a jew in many places or to have a intermarriage to get free from his herency?, why the people in Israel get in the streets to protest or is forbiden?, why the people of Israel don't topple this goverment?, Netaniahu you are a scoundrel.

  5. NO NO NO!!!! It is time to stop this sick charade already. Egypt – EGYPT!! – has stood up to Obama. NO ONE on the world stage respects him. Netanyahu MUST stand up to him already! NOTHING will "win him over" to Israel's side. Obama will ALWAYS side with the thug terrorist leaders of the Palestinian Arabs. This must STOP!!!

  6. Jenny Holcberg says:

    It should not be a deoision from the cabinet to free or not to free terrorists
    the voice of all citizens of Israel should have a say ,let their voices be heard
    it is a matter that involves each and everone ,families of the victims in the first place and the voice of justice that condemaned the terrorists afer judjment
    Citizens of Israel dont keep quiet

  7. Jenny Holcberg says:

    What are the results of the so called peace talks?

  8. Jenny Holcberg says:

    Shall Israel free more monsters,NEVER

  9. This is the most asinine policy I have ever heard of and is a good example of the problem with the Israeli political leadership in regards to the Palestinians. What do you think the response would be if the United States did the same thing. If it's not good enough for the United States to release terrorists from prison, why should it be for Israel. But, this decision by Israel also exposes another problem. Israel's inability to stand up for themselves and resist pressure to make such deals. If Israel thinks they are going to gain brownie points for making idiotic decisions, they are thinking wrong. The same holds true when Israel offers to give up land or be dictated to where they can build in their own country. Besides, any country that makes decisions based on popularity is a country that is doomed to failure. There will always be people who support Israel and this who don't. For none supporters, nothing Israel does is good enough, this has shown to be true from the beginning. History has proven that trying to appease your enemy simply does not work and often makes things worse. I hope Israel will finally understand this before it's too late.
