Today's Golden Oldie is from 1987. I was angry back then about the Israeli government bashing our legal system, endangering our population, and whetting the blood lust of our genocidal enemies by releasing convicts from prison.Twenty-one years have now passed and the latest news is the latest release:
TEL AVIV, Israel, Aug. 18 (UPI) -- "Israeli officials confirm a list has been finalized of 200 Palestinian prisoners to be released, including two with "blood on their hands."The controversial move was approved at a Cabinet level and is seen as a goodwill gesture to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in advance of U.S. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice's visit this month, The Jerusalem Post reported Monday.Included in the proposed prisoner release are Muhammad Abu Ali, who was convicted of killing an Israeli reservist, a Palestinian suspected of collaborating with Israel and Said Uteba, who planted three bombs in central Israeli cities.Their proposed release was particularly controversial with defense and security leaders who argue it will not aid moderate Palestinian leaders and only encourage radicals, the Post reported." -moreI was angry back in 1987, but I'm beyond "angry" now.How about you?
