In many ways, it’s worse than I originally thought, now that the names officially have been released.
In addition to the planners of the Sbarro Pizza bombing, about which I blogged earlier, the releasees include the planners of many other high profile bombings, terrorist attacks which live in the consiousness of every supporter of Israel.
Via The Jerusalem Post, the list includes the planners of the Park Hotel Passover bombing, the Moment Cafe bombing, and Jerusalem, Haifa and Beersheba bus bombings,
Meanwhile, Hamas is planning a huge victory celebration.
Update 10-16-2011: Caroline Glick, A pact signed in Jewish blood:
It is also beyond dispute that untold numbers of IDF soldiers and officers will be abducted and held hostage. Soldiers now training for war or scrubbing the floors of their barracks, or sitting at a pub with their friends on holiday leave will one day find themselves in a dungeon in Gaza or Sinai or Lebanon undergoing unspeakable mental and physical torture for years. Their families will suffer inhuman agony.The only thing we don’t know about these future victims is their names. But we know what will become of them as surely as we know that night follows day.Netanyahu has proven once again that taking IDF soldiers hostage is a sure bet for our Palestinian neighbors. They can murder the next batch of Sinais and Gals, Noas and Ruths. They can kill thousands of them. And they can do so knowing all along that all they need to do to win immunity for their killers is kidnap a single IDF soldier.
