Shira has done a nice job of putting together a roundup of thoughts about the shameful release of those murderers today.
I’ll add Seraphic Secret’s post â€œSwap Teaches Us to Kidnap Moreâ€ to the mix.
In my initial post about this And Murderers Are Set Free I voiced some of my disgust and distaste about the shameful behavior of the Israeli government in releasing these murderers.
I very badly for the Goldwasser and Regev families, but the government had solid intelligence that suggested that they were dead a long time ago. The confirmation of their deaths is a tragedy that is multiplied by the release of those who wish to murder again.
Once in Beirut, convicted murderer Samir Kuntar — who was the longest-held Lebanese prisoner in Israel — told a crowd of thousands he’d continue to fight for the liberation of the Palestinian territories.
“I return today from Palestine, but believe me, I return to Lebanon only in order to return to Palestine,” Kuntar said.
There you go Israel, he has made another blood oath. Fulfill your responsibility to your people and to your citizens and take him out before he has a chance to do anything.
Uphold your obligation and do the right thing. Men such as him forfeit their rights to life.
