Israel is set to release in the coming days 26 terrorists who killed Israeli citizens. Of the 26 terrorists set to be freed, 21 came from Judea and Samaria, and 5 from Gaza. Most committed their terror attacks before Oslo, and served sentences ranging from 19 to 28 years.I'm so glad that the terrorist who injured me, a couple a dozen others and murdered one woman had been killed on site soon after. I don't know how I'd handle knowing that after that dastardly act he could be allowed by the Israeli Government to be free. The suitable punishment for such a crime is death, and thank G-d three young men who were on the scene shot him dead. They had to deal with the police, but in the end they weren't convicted of any crime. This was also one of the early cases when the police tried to prove the terror attack was just an "accident." I was involved with telling the public that it was a terror attack. I gave information to the Jerusalem Post for a front page article and double-sized editorial, wrote an op-ed and then was interviewed on live TV on the IBA.

The terrorist being released that got me extra upset was once who murdered someone in our circle. Minutes after the attack, someone I know arrived at the scene and comforted the victim's family. Blood from the victim got on that person's clothes. It wasn't all that much blood, but the person kept visualizing blood all over the outfit and asked me to get it clean. I scrubbed and scrubbed it. It looked clean to me, but the person I know couldn't wear it ever again. In that person's eyes, the blood would always be there, no matter how clean it looked to others. Thinking about it today, I see that I was wrong. I couldn't really clean that jacket of blood. The stain of the murdered victim of Arab terror wasn't just blood red. For the family and and friends the blood will always be visible.
