Families Protest Prisoner Release

For 935 days, the family of Gilad Shalit and their supporters occupied a Jerusalem, Israel street.

It was surprising to hear that the tent that is now located in that spot outside the Prime Minister’s residence was to be removed by order of the Municipality, on Monday afternoon or Tuesday morning.

However, after a Monday visit and apology from Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat,

family members of murdered Israelis were still on the street with signs,

  ‘Israeli government officials should be embarrassed – only in Israel do murderers go free’

and terrorists go home and terror increases.

As this latest release of 26 convicted murders seems destined to go through, will these murderers also receive a heroes welcome and healthy financial package?

What has Israel gotten in return from such ‘painful gestures’ other than more pain?

Has the Palestinian Authority moved one baby-step toward a compromise?

 Posters with the victims faces and memorial candles seem of little comfort.

 

About Real Jstreets

I lived in the United States, Canada and Australia before moving to Israel in the midst of the Second Lebanon War. For the last seven years, walking the streets of Jerusalem, the scenes I saw every day did not resemble the ones familiar in the Western media. Now I try to share those positive images with the world, what is really happening in Jerusalem, Israel, The Real Jerusalem Streets
