Murderer of Israeli Students Given Cash Prize, Employed, Promoted

Two Israeli college students were brutally murdered 30 years ago. Their murderer has been given his freedom, a huge cash prize, a job, a military promotion and an all-expenses-paid wedding. He has no regrets.

So, two barely twenty-something Jewish Israeli college students were slaughtered for the crime of being Jewish. They are dead, and their blood has not been avenged.

A cold-blooded murderer had the leader of his people praise him as “the best of the Palestinian people” to his mother, was released from prison instead of serving the life sentences for the murders he committed, has been handed more money than he would have ever made from an honest job, has been handed a top-paying job for the rest of his life, was promoted to a high rank in the military and all the expenses of his wedding will be paid for.

What is wrong with this picture?

But there’s more.

Because in another universe, one with a different set of morals, one in which the murdered innocents are lionized and the murderers are shamed, someone who spent 30 years in prison might have been rehabilitated in prison. Or at least such a person might have developed some semblance of regret for the actions he took when he was merely a 19 year old, hot-headed youth.

“HE DIDN’T WANT TO RETURN EMPTY-HANDED”

Instead, as Palestinian Media Watch has revealed, Abbo has no sense of shame. Thirty years later he describes the murders he committed in the tone of voice one might use to describe a slightly complicated shopping trip.

Watch this video. See how, when Abbo was recently interviewed on Arab television, he explains to the interviewer that he was originally supposed to carry out an “operation,” that’s what they call murders – on a bus full of soldiers. But the bus never came, and after “waiting and waiting,” he decided “to improvise.”

Why?

Because “he didn’t want to return empty-handed.” So, when he saw a car with Israelis in it, and the Israeli students got out and went down the hill to sit under a tree, “I said to myself, ‘here’s my chance.’”


And this murderer’s release is said –by some, including the President of the United States — to advance the “peace process.”

  1. And this is the mentality outsiders say to make peace with

  2. This is disgusting and typical with those “people” !

    The PAArab territories, where a psychotic serial killer can get away with murder.

  5. I am feeling very sick after reading this. These are the moments of sheer devastation. Someone needs to find this piece of human garbage and send him to his 72 virgins.

  6. Thomas Blackblood Giles says:

    little does he know they are all trekkies…lol…he wont be happy X-D

  7. Thomas Blackblood Giles says:

    israel shouldnt bother trying to negotiate with palestine anymore…its never going to go anywhere sadly

  8. We need a private hit squad…

  9. Julia Bowman says:

    They will answer for their actions sooner or later……

  10. You wonder what is becoming of this world

  11. Why Israel ever agreed to release murderers to get the PA terrorsts to sit down and talk "peace" is something most people will never understand
    PM Netanyahu, who is a great PM, made the mistake of his political life.
    He should never have agreed to the coditions laid down by the terrorist leadr, Abbas.
    Obviously, he was ;pushed by Obama and the idiot Kerry to accept the conditions.
    Would Obama allow anyone to dictake terms to release any murderers?
    Bibi should have known that the conditions were a farse.
    Abbas has no intention of making peace with the Jewish state.
    He wont even recognise Israel as a Jewish state.
    He denies the Holocaust, although Germany has always said that Germany is gguilty of the worst crime in history. The murder of 6 million Jews.
    How can any country even want to talk to this man who rewards murderers of Jews and calls them heroes.

  12. jSo this piece of garbage has been "promoted" to the rank of Maj General in the Palestian army.
    So, that "army" is made up of killers.
    Some army to have a killer who has no idea about military, to become one of their leaders.
    If, or when they start a new war against israel, there wont be anyone left of the palestinian "army"

  13. There had better be a judgement day. ..because those here on earth are doing something very wrong. …. imagine being the parents of the murdered Israelis. …I want to vomit. …

  14. This is who the Palestinians hold in their highest regard. And there are Jews out there who actually want to make peace with these animals. Man, are Jews screwed up. After The Holocaust, you still believe that peace is possible with evil–wow!!!

  15. David Yolles says:

    it's sad to say but I would like to see someone in the PM family close to him killed by a terrorist and then see how fast he is to release these murders I bet it would be a different story

  16. Moishe Pupik says:

    The Prime Minister's brother was killed by terrorists in 1976.

  17. Thomas Blackblood Giles says:

    Kyra Matustik well if they keep negotiating then more monsters like this guy will be released…and thats good for nobody…especially israel

  18. Gil Gilman says:

    This is what leftist haters of Israel apparently support.

  19. And you in Israel agreed to let him go. Will it take repeat of the past to wake you up to the fact that appeasement does not work with savages. Dont you understand they all want you dead, nothing else will do. Wake up Israel or you will be in the history books again. The boy king and his pet Kerry will see to that if they can.

  20. Aryeh Sax says:

    "Would Obama allow anyone to dictate terms to release any murderers?" The answer is yes, if he could only sit down with the terrorists, apologize for how the USA has wronged them and would like peace in our time or at least while he is still in office. He would release all gitmo and terrorist imprisoned in the US for that chance, on precondition of talks. Look at his history.

  21. Walter Richards says:

    This patrly israel's fault. Life sentences??? Why???? they should have been executed.
    Then their rotten corpses could have been returned.
    Israel has let itself become the laughing stock of the world.
    Neville Chamberalin Netanyahu and Perez should both be removed from office.

  22. Ross Gallen says:

    The release of this piece of garbage is the best argument for capital punishment. His release is an affront to the integrity of the judicial system, and certainly should not have occurred. A life sentence means nothing. Criminals of this kind should receive a fair trial, and if the charge is sustained they should be executed forthwith.

  23. This is an absolutely outrageous and disgusting report..anyone Jew or non Jew with any moral compass can not help to find this Appalling!!!

  24. A travesty of justice! Deplorable!

  25. this worm gets their highest accolades. this is what these knuckledraggers elevate. take no prisoners.please. so we don't have to be sickened by reading about this. saves time, money and lives lost.

  26. Capitulation to misguided US pressures spell doom for the Jewish people. If you can't learn from your past mistakes you are only going to repeat them. Nauseating to see this vermin free .Even worse is overall Jewish apathy in the US. Kerry needs to be removed.He could star on the defunct TV program the "Weakest link."

  27. Carlos Font says:

    It has all been said by the other commenters. If these inhuman people are found guilty, immediate death by hanging is my choice. Do not honor them with a firing squad.

  28. Marsha Roth says:

    Rabbo should have been executed and save Israel the cost of housing & feeding him. I feel the same about all the other terrorists.

  29. Luis Lalama says:

    I volunteer for the job, with no regrets no remorse

  30. James McGahan Vss says:

    i doubt he will enjoy his freedom …mossad have very long arms…and longer memories

  31. Yeah, Sara & Kyra. Remember what the prophet Isaiah said in our Bible, Torah: "As ye sow, so shall ye reap.
    "

  32. Maynard Miller says:

    Why did you let this scumbag live and eat for 30 years? I'll bet that the families of the two killed had to pay taxes to feed that killer. I am not Jewish but I believe in the Bible, I also believe that what God told Moses to do is correct and he told him that if a man kills another he is to be killed. Shame on you for not doing just that. The reward he should have gotten 30 years ago was a grave full of worms to eat his lousy hide up.
