The people in this photo, are all people who were killed by terrorists who had been released, in just such an exchange as is about to happen again …. a thousand terrorists … for one Israeli – Gilad Shalit.
“The deal [for Shalit] involves Israel throwing open the gates of its top-security prisons and issuing wholesale pardons. My wife Frimet and I have expressed our principled objection to the deal. “While others are busy trying to stop it in the courts, we are focusing our energies on one specific person, and getting her off the list.
Parents of a teenage victim of the Sbarro Restaurant suicide bombing have launched a last-minute petition to convince the government to keep the terrorist in jail.
Arnold and Frimet Roth lost their daughter Malki in the attack in the center of Jerusalem, where 15 others lost their lives and dozens of others were wounded.
The Israeli government is about to release Ahlam Tamimi, a 31-year-old woman who not only drove the suicide bomber to carry out the massacre but also helped plan the attack.
She said from her jail cell, “I’m not sorry for what I did. I will get out of prison, and I refuse to recognize Israel’s existence. Discussions will only take place after Israel recognizes that this is Islamic land.”
Israel’s agreement to free Tamimi and 1,026 other terrorists and security prisoners in return for kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit stipulates that Tamimi will be deported to Jordan.
“This petition asks for the removal of one specific name from the list of more than 1,000 terrorists, including hundreds of convicted murderers….
“Time is very limited. We really only have until Sunday (today) to get a significant number of signatures. If we succeed, we can then put pressure on the Prime Minister’s Office and the Justice Ministry and publicize this in the media.
“Together with our friends and their friends, we hope – despite the odds – to do something constructive in the face of the terrible transaction being done with the terrorists of Hamas.”
