By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
Today, the first group of Palestinian prisoners will be released. 26 of 104 prisoners that Israel promised to release in order to entice Mahmoud Abbas to sit down at the table to talk about a peace deal will go free.
26 mass murderers. 14 will return to Gaza. 12 will be released in the West Bank.
Here are some of their names and their crimes:
Abu Moussa Salam Ali Atiya, jailed since 1994, for the murder of Holocaust survivor Isaac Rotenberg
Kor Mattawa Hamad Faiz, jailed since 1985, for the murder of Menahem Dadon and attempted murder of Salomon Abukasis
Salah Ibrahim Ahmad Mughdad, jailed since 1993, for the murder of Israel Tenenbaum.
Many of the victims were older and were Holocaust survivors. 12 of the victims were Arab. All of the prisoners were convicted of murder and attempted murder. Their release flies in the face of the judicial system that convicted them. They are not being released for good behavior nor are they being released on parole.
These convicted criminals are being released as a political gesture which is supra judicial.
