Murderers Released for Peace Talks Have ‘No Regrets” for Killing

Sunday, December 8th, 2013

A Palestinian Authority terrorists who was serving a life sentence for murder, until Israel freed him for the privilege of resuming “peace talks,” has said he and other released prisoners have no regrets for killing because they acted “for the homeland.”

These reassuring words were stated on Palestinian Authority television by Asrar Samrin, who was sentenced for the murder of Israeli Tzvi Klein in December 1991. The Palestinian Media Watch translated and published Samrin’s love to murder Jews.

Under direct pressure by the Obama administration, Israel recently released 52 of 104 imprisoned terrorists to accommodate the Palestinian Authority’s precondition to return to talks that had been frozen for three years.

The murderer explained that “the first question all Israeli media ask every released prisoner is: ‘Do you regret what you did or not?’”

His answer was: “Through the great PA TV, I say to the Israelis: There is no Palestinian who did something for the homeland and his nation who will regret it. We don’t regret what we did and we will not regret what we did.”

Remember those words the next time a freed Palestinian Authority terrorists tried to kill a Jew again. For the record, more than 120 Israelis have been murdered by PA terrorists who have been released in one deal or another before their prison terms were finished. In hundreds of cases, they were serving multiple life terms for murder or planning suicide bombings that resulted in massacres of Israelis and visiting Americans.

In another PA TV interview earlier this year, a prisoner who was released after having served 10 years explained how prisoners spend their time. In a striking statement that contradicts the Palestinian Authority libel about cruel conditions in Israeli jails, the prisoner explained that the “worst thing about Israeli prison” is when prisoners are transported on the prison bus and have to sit for a long time on a metal chair.

“The worst thing about Israeli prison is the torturous ride… when a man is driven to court or to the hospital or on any ride outside the prison… We prisoners call this ‘ride of torment’… This is beyond imagination… It it’s hard to convey the suffering. The prisoners sit on a metal chair, made entirely of metal, there’s nothing but metal inside it.”

He then described a typical prisoners’ day, during which prisoners spend their time “chatting, talking, eating, drinking, joking and playing.

“In the morning we’d exercise from 7:00 until 8:00… Then the guys would get together in the prison yard and we’d chat, talk, eat, drink, joke and play, etc., throughout the day… Noon roll-call is from 11:00 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. Roll-call time is time for resting in the rooms… Nap time, reading time, study time… At 1:30 or 12:30 p.m. they’d take us out to the yard again. We’d spend [time] with the guys walking, laughing, playing, joking, etc., until dark.”

Nasrallah Spreads the Blame, Accuses Saudis for Suicide Bombings

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

Hezbollah supreme leader Hassan Nasrallah for the first time has accused Saudi Arabia of hunting down his terrorist organization. He blamed the kingdom for an attack two weeks ago on the Iranian embassy in Beirut, where 23 people were killed. An Al Qaeda-linked group previously has taken responsibility for the suicide bombings.

Nasrallah also blamed Saudi Arabia for similar attacks on Iraq.

His accusations on Tuesday were followed on Wednesday with his blaming Israel for the assassination of one of Hezbollah’s most senior terrorists, who was gunned down in Beirut, as reported here.

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

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

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.

Letter Reveals Rav Ovadia Retracted ‘Land for Peace’ Ruling in 2003

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Rabbi Ovadia Yosef reversed his famous “Land for Peace” ruling of 1993 after the Palestinian Authority literally exploded in Israel’s face a decade later with large-scale terrorist attacks, including suicide bombings.

The revelation of the letter, seen below, explains Rav Ovadia’s incredibly strong statements in recent sermons, such as one of the most famous ones three years ago when he said of the Palestinian Authority, “All these evil people should perish from this world. God should strike them with a plague, them and these Palestinians.”

In 1993, when the prospect of peace turned into a mantra that mass media used to blind themselves and wishful-thinkers, the idea of Israel’s surrendering Judea, Gaza and Samaria for peace with Yasser Arafat was pushed by U.S. President Bill Clinton.

The Israeli government was split, and the Shas party, which obeyed whatever Rav Ovadia said, withstood arguments from nationalists and kept the Rabin-Peres coalition government alive with his famous ruling in favor of giving up “land for peace” because it is a matter of “pikuach nefesh,” saving the lives of Jews.

After Rav Ovadia died, Israel’s populist but rather ignorant media turned the funeral into a peace festival that obliterated the greatness of the rabbi, who wrote 50 books and who was cited all over the world as one of the greatest Torah sages ever.

The “expert analysts” on Israel radio and in the mass media explained that Rav Ovadia was a great man, but not because of  his brilliant mind that lived and breathed Torah and not because of the Shas party that he founded and turned into a kingmaker in Israeli politics.

“Land for peace” was the reason 800,000 Jews from all sects of Israeli society came to the funeral.

What they did not say is that 10 years after Oslo, during the Second Intifada that also is known as the Oslo War, Rav Ovadia ruled exactly the opposite.

Instead of “land for peace” being an issue to save the lives of Jews, it had become clear that it was a concept that endangered Jews.

Arafat’s “peace,” which murdered more than 1,000 Jews, wounded thousands others and which continues until today under the invisible hand of Mahmoud Abbas, is not the peace Rav Ovadia had in mind.

He wrote, “My dear brothers of Israel, residents of Judea and Samaria:

“It is my intention to make clear my position concerning Judea and Samaria. I have explained more than once since my Halachic ruling, that giving up land for peace has no validity in light of the current situation.

“I intended there be a true peace, in which Jerusalem and its surroundings will be secure in peace and quiet. But now, our eyes see that surrendering our holy land causes a danger to life.

“This is not the peace for which we prayed. Therefore, the Oslo Accords are null and void.”

Rav Ovadia then cited the verse form Psalms that states, “I speak peace and they speak war.”

Just as populist media falsified Rav Ovadia’s ruling, it has turned Jews in Israel and all over the world into victims of ignorant and slanderous reporting of Rav Ovadia’s Saturday night sermons. They took phrases out of contact and without any understanding that the rabbis was speaking the language his constituents understood, which is not the style of the pseudo-sophisticated Ashkenazi elite and certainly not that of the bleeding-heart media.

The Aish HaTorah website once quoted Rav Ovadia with comments that stated much clearer his idea of land for peace.

It quoted Rav Ovadia as saying, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef stated: “If the heads and commanders of the army, together with the government, state that saving of life is involved; that if areas of Israel are not given back, the danger exists of immediate war on the part of our Arab neighbors;

“And if the areas are returned to them, the danger of war will be averted; and that there is a chance of permanent peace; then it seems that according to all opinions it is permitted to return areas of Israel in order to achieve this aim, since nothing is more important than the saving of life.”

The Palestinian Authority war or terror on Israeli in the 1990s, after the Oslo Accords did not satisfy Arafat’s appetite to swallow up Israel, took a breather towards the end of the decade when the Barak government was on the verge of giving Arafat almost everything he wanted.
