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.”
