TRADING IN TERRORISTS….

By ATWadmin On December 6th, 2006

mbarghouti.jpgDid you read that a senior member of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s cabinet has proposed the release of convicted murderer, terror group founder and alleged planner of the second Palestinian intifada Marwan Barghouti in exchange for the freedom of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit?

Gideon Ezra, from Olmert’s Kadima party, said Barghouti’s release could help strengthen Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party.

Just remember that Barghouti, a member of the Palestinian parliament, is the founder of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a terror group that has carried out scores of suicide bombings, deadly shooting attacks and hundreds of rocket firings at Jewish communities near Gaza. He is serving multiple life terms for his role in killing five Israeli civilians. Barghouti has boasted of being one of the main architects of the Palestinian intifada that began in 2000, killing 993 Israelis and 3,777 Palestinians. Nice guy. eh?

 

The only consequences of using the release of a mass murderer as a bargaining chip to obtain the release of a kidnapped soldier is that there will be more kidnapped soldiers and more Fatah directed murders. Gideon is a fool and manifests the leftwing weakness of the Olmert regime.
