List of terrorists to be released is sickening
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.

This isn’t going to end well, I’m afraid.
Hard to find any sort of silver lining here. The only potentially positive angle I can think of is that a terrorist is prison is a cost — a terrorist on the loose is target.
I sort of doubt this entered into their calculations however.
Maybe the IDF implanted GPS tracking devices in these thugs and will know where they are after they are released? It can be done fairly easily these days…
These exchanges have never worked in Israel’s best interests. It sounds cold-hearted but the needs of the many out-weigh the needs of the one. The murderous Palestinian thugs soon to be released will return to attack Israel again and many more Israelis will suffer from this decision.
How will Gilad Schalit and his family feel after the first, second and 100th terrorist attack committed by these thugs? Does he know the terms of his release? Would he want this? I have to wonder…
There will be informers amongst them. The freed prisoners will not only have lost their place they will never be fully trusted .
Will this be any significant comfort to the families of those killed by the scores of terrorist thugs to do return to attack Israel?
i am taking it that it has been agreed to. Thus I am offering an aspect not presented in the thread.
One of the most successful Israeli strategies is to target such eg driving in their cars. These require inside knowlege.
Maybe revenge is best served cold.
All the families of the victims of these terrorist thugs have clearly NOT agreed to this transfer. Many are still pursuing legal means in Israeli courts to stop the release of these murderous thugs. But the government appears to be pushing ahead with this truly bad idea.
anyone getting any rumbles about Chavez being dead something going on in twitter
It seems Israelis are split over this decision too.
Also among the terrorists serving 924 life terms that are about to be freed, are those responsible for the June 1st, 2001 massacres at the Dolphinarium in Tel Aviv (21 teenagers killed, 132 injured)
Since 2004, 183 Israelis have been killed in terror attacks carried out by terrorists who were released from prison.
