Pretty Dumb Deal

I shouldn't say "I can't believe it," because Israeli rulers constantly make dangerous deals like this one to free terrorists for information about whether Gilad Shalit is really alive or not.  All it accomplishes is more demands and more pressure and more kidnapping and attacks.

So, you may say, we're releasing female terrorists.  Is that supposed to comfort me?  Anyone who follows the news knows that the female terrorists are more ideologically vicious than the males.  And don't forget the true stories of the mothers of terrorists who proclaim great pride in their murdering children, even the ones who blew themselves up in the process.

These same Israeli politicians have no problems treating teachers like lazy factory workers, blaming us for failures in education.  The government and media are tougher on pioneering Jews than they are on Arab terrorists.

"We have atomic bombs, and we cannot rescue a soldier [Schalit] 10 kilometers away? We take a list of what they want and simply kill half of them, and every day he is not released, we kill another one. If they kill him, then you attack, and you make sure there is not one Hamas leader who stays alive."
- Moshe Feiglin

He could be just a stroll away, like Nachson Wachsman was.

One can only hope that this time the Divine answer to all the prayers and efforts will be 'yes' instead of 'no'. No?

Anonymous (get a clue, get a name), yes we can always hope but, at the same time, we have what we can do.

Lo Bashamayim He - It is not in heaven.

A clue AND a name?
Oh no, i'm way too shy for that.

Or is there really .."an 11th, unwritten Commandment: "Thou shalt do anything for publicity and recognition.""????

while it is fully possible that israel is releasing inveterate terrorists for a few minutes of footage, it is also possible that israel would have released these prisoners anyway, or are they are no longer deemed dangerous, and is just getting more mileage out of them.
im just sayin'...

Anonymous, another clue:

It doesn't have to be a real name. Just a useful unique identifier, which the word "anonymous" isn't.

Oh, thanks Shy!
So, a useful unique identifier.. I'll consider that.

How about choosing 20 people who have served their sentences and are about to be released. Announce that they are the ones being released for the "proof". Then state that they will be released after the proof is delivered. Of course, their sentence no longer applies so they will stay in prison until the proof arrives (even though their sentences have been completed anyways).

muse said...

shy, I agree, and your "name" is a perfect example.

Sabba Hillel, too bad you're not running the negotiations.

agree

At least I didn't vote Likud. Before the elections I heard Bibi say he wanted a broad government and was willing to do anything to get Kadima back. In the end he took Barak.

That's right. You voted for Ketzeleh, who asked Shimon Peres to chose Netanyahu to form the government.

According to your logic, maybe you should vote for Meretz next time.

How about: In exchange for the vidoe of Schalit, Israel release a VIDEO of the female terrorists?

muse said...

Shy, some things we agree on and others not.

NJ, brilliant! A video for a video, how Biblical...
