Shalits’ riots continue

Shameless individuals of Jewish origin who demand a 1:1,400 prisoner exchange continued their demonstrations near the prime minister’s office as senior leftist politicians visited them. The Shalits met the relatives of Arad and Goldwasser; the latter had received a dear corpse in exchange for iconic terrorist Samir Kuntar.

After Olmert removed Barak’s man Amos Gilad from the negotiations, Israel refused to release four major terrorists among the 1,400, which amounts to ending the negotiations, as Hamas has already promised them freedom.

The Shalits push Olmert to release more terrorists. Why don’t they go demonstrate in Gaza City and ask Hamas to accept less?

Shalit as elections stunt

During his trip to Cairo, Amos Gilad will discuss a prisoner exchange for the return of Gilad Shalit. Avodah and Kadima desperately need to bring Shalit back before the elections to boost their ratings.

During the Security Cabinet meeting, Livni and Barak twisted the arm of Public Security Minister Avi Dichter, forcing him to change his stance on prisoner “exchange.” Now Dichter accepts releasing Jew-murderers (“blood on hands”) and only asks that they be transferred to Gaza or Lebanon.

From a practical viewpoint, the terrorists can return to their trade in Gaza even more easily than in the West Bank. Even in Lebanon, they would take on an educational role, as Samir Kuntar did.

Previous governments also have released Jew-murderers, as Rabin did in the Jericho deal.

It is far from certain whether Shalit is alive. During the Gaza campaign, Hamas refused to take responsibility for his safety.

Indian terrorists are better than Palestinian ones

The only Jewish survivor of the Chabad House attack in Mumbai is two years old. After the terrorists bound and gagged the other people in the house, they refused to kill a baby and sent him with his nanny downstairs, allowing her to escape with the child.

It’s hard to recall a single instance when Palestinian terrorists have spared a baby. The Israeli government recently released an Arab star terrorist, Samir Kuntar, one of many Arabs who have murdered an entire Jewish family.

Court rejects Jew-murderers’ appeal

A Nazareth court refused a petition by five Arab murderers who murdered Jewish child Danny Katz and, in a separate crime, Dafna Karmon.

The Supreme Court’s Aharon Barak initiated judicial review of the caseóbut even he was overruled, as the courts re-sentenced the “freedom fighters.”

The Arabs were originally sentenced to lifeóa way-too-light punishment for the animalsóbut Shimon Peres pardoned them. Even the normally subservient Parole Commission rejected his pardon.

No problem. Peres will get the murderers released in the next prisoner exchange, just as he released Samir Kuntar. For a good knight, Jewish blood is cheap.

Samir Kuntar vows to fight Israel

AFP gleefully interviewed the released terrorist. Kuntar promised to not rest until Israel is destroyed.
Israel released Samir Kuntar in exchange for the decomposed bodies of Regev and Goldwasser.
Though only about 60 percent of released terrorists ever return to terror, most of them become disproportionally important as lecturers and inciters.

Government tests new standard for prisoners exchange

After the public did not protest releasing the Jew-murderer Samir Kuntar, the government released two more Palestinian terrorist prisoners with Jewish blood on their hands. Like Kuntar, both Arabs spend more than three decades in Israeli jail.
The government prepares for massive release of Jew-murderers in exchange for Cpl.Shalit.

Israel threatens less help to Al Jazeera

After the notorious mouthpiece of Islamic terrorists broadcasted the released arch-terrorist’s Samir Kuntar fireworks party, Israeli Government Press Office threatened to reduce cooperation with Al Jazeera to a minimal level until the network provides acceptable explanation.
The stupidity is unbelievable. What explanation does they want? Al Jazeera, an Islamic network which routinely lauds international terrorists, broadcasted one terrorist’s party. What is not clear to the GPO morons?
Worse, it is mind-boggling that Israel allows Al Jazeera to operate in the country, let alone extends to it more than a minimal legally required cooperation.

Samir Kuntar promises to continue killing Jews

Lebanon cheers Samir Kuntar

An arch-murderer of Jewish family released, while the hero assassin of Yitzhak Rabin languishes in Israeli jail.
Samir Kuntar was allowed many visits and fathered a number of bastards, while Israeli authorities repeatedly refused Yigal Amir even conjugal visits.

Prisoner exchange admits Israeli defeat in 2006 Lebanon war

Lebanese government noted correctly that Hezbollah pushed Israel to the very same terms it refused before the 2006 Israeli war with Lebanon. Hezbollah was asking Israel to release Samir Kuntar. After Israel’s repeated refusals Hezbollah attacked an IDF outpost, took Regev and Goldwasser prisoners, and now exchanged their bodies for Kuntar.
Had Israeli government released Kuntar in early 2006, more than a hundred Israelis including Regev and Goldwasser would have been alive.

Hamas claims Samir Kuntar a precedent

Israel repeatedly refused to exchange Palestinian Jew-murderers for Shalit, and offered only the terrorists who failed to murder Jews. An euphemism is “without blood on hands.”
The government, however, released Samir Kuntar in exchange for corpses of Regev and Goldwasser. Kuntar murdered a Jewish family, thus by any definition he has plenty of blood on his hands.
Hamas, accordingly, vowed to stick to its demands of releasing murderers in exchange for Shalit.

Israel-Hezbollah prisoner exchange: terrorists for corpses

Samir KuntarDespite the objections of Shin-Bet and Mossad, Israeli government voted 22:3 to release the notorious unrepentant terrorist Samir Kuntar, scores of others, in exchange for Regev and Goldwasser corpses. It is long understood that Regev and Goldwasser died from their wounds during or shortly after the Hezbollah cross-border attack that sparked the 2006 war with Lebanon. Hezbollah repeatedly refused to offer proof of life.
Livni, who voted against the previous prisoner exchange under Sharon (hundreds of terrorists for an Israeli drug dealer) objected to this swap, but voted for it. The deeply religious Sha$ saw no problem in releasing Jew-murderers rather than executing them, as the commandment goes. Only Roni Bar-On, Ze’ev Boim and Justice Minister Daniel Friedmann deserve respect for voting against the deal.
The logic behind the swap remains murky. Olmert claims he wants the end to Regev-Goldwasser issue. Israel had to reward the German negotiators with some sort of a deal, so that their two years of negotiating with Hezbollah won’t be wasted.
Leftist media hunted the government on the Regev-Goldwasser affair. The prisoner swap is a boon to the media: if public accepts the swap, the media would claim victory over the foot-dragging government. Otherwise, media will lash out against Olmert for a disproportionate deal.
Olmert has to test public nerves before the massive release of Palestinian terrorists in exchange for a meager Cpl.Shalit; it is rather unlikely that the public would explode being ripped for the second time.
Samir Kuntar, an arch-murderer of Jews, is very popular among Arabs and Israeli peace camp, and the prisoner exchange brings Olmert some new votes. On other hand, Kuntar spent three decades behind the bars in Israel, and his continued imprisonment hardly punishes him a lot.
Kuntar’s release is a great boost to Nasrallah’s public image, as the Hezbollah leader repeatedly promised to bring the high-profile terrorist back to Lebanon. Israel kept Kuntar in the hope of gaining information about the lost Jewish pilot Ron Arad, but Hezbollah apparently knows nothing about him. Disgusting as it is, it makes sense of Olmert to close the chapter.

Olmert offers the government to share responsibility

The government discusses exchanging up to a thousand of Arab terrorists including prominent Jew-murderers such as Samir Kuntar for probably remains of Regev and Goldwasser captured by Hezbollah in 2006.
Olmert’s offer of deliberation shows his opposition to the exchange. Though most Israelis, too, oppose such idiotic exchanged, they are hugely popular in falsely compassionate media. Olmert, therefore, wants ministers to share the blame.

Nasrallah: Jewish corpses worth many terrorists

Nasrallah claims that Hezbollah would demand Samir Kuntar and other Muslim terrorists in exchange for bodies of Regev and Goldwasser.
Israel had previously released minor terrorists in exchange for bodies, though the official policy remains “bodies for bodies.” Kuntar is a prized terrorist: horribly brutal, a celebrity among Arabs and leftist Jews, and unrepentant.
Thanks to his Jewish friends, Kuntar, a murderer of Jewish family, was allowed to father a number of children while in prison. The same privilege was denied to Yigal Amir for many years.

Prisoner swap with Hezbollah: Olmert looks better

Israel exchanged Hezbollah spy Nasim Nisr for body parts of Jewish soldiers fallen in the Second Lebanon war. The deal is not as stupid as it sounds: Nisr was transported to Lebanon on the last day of his six-year jail term. He already renounced his Israeli citizenship and, theoretically, was free to go. The government has only refrained from vengefully keeping Nisr in Israel despite his legal right to go.
Given the absence of signs of life from Regev and Goldwasser, it is dubious that Israel and Lebanon would complete the real prisoner exchange. Even so, swapping Lebanese terrorist Samir Kuntar for Israeli MIAs isn’t so great a price. Kuntar spent three decades behind Israeli bars, and by now is well accustomed to jail conditions. That celebrity prisoner gives interviews, receives visitors – including Israeli officials – and evidently feels little discomfort in jail. Israel also offered to include four Hezbollah POWs in the swap.
Prisoner exchange with Hezbollah differs greatly from a similar swap with Hamas. The main objection to prisoner exchanges is that they provoke more kidnappings and eventually endanger many more Jews than the number released. Such argument holds true for situations when Arabs can kidnap Jews easily, almost unimpeded, sort of ancient criminals kidnapping civilians to sell them into slavery. Israel has no state border with Palestinian-occupied territories, admits huge numbers of Palestinians who can kidnap Jews with ease. It is therefore unreasonable and immoral to conduct prisoner swaps with Palestinian organizations.
But the situation is very different with Hezbollah which only kidnaps Israelis in cross-border raids, essentially a military venture. Hezbollah behaves as a military organization: it generally (sic) abides by its word, refrains from attacking Israel like the Palestinians do, and has no claims to Israel besides the Shebaa farms which Israel has anyway agreed to evacuate. Prisoner swap with Hezbollah, therefore, falls under the classic exchange of MIAs after ceasefire.
As for the hostage exchange with Hamas, Olmert declared that no ceasefire with Hamas would be concluded without release of Shalit.
