More Terrorists Go Free

image protest against prisoner release, image family members protest, photo tent near prime ministers home, picture prisoner release protestIn fast food restaurants there is a trick to increase up-sales.

Staff should not say “would you like a drink with that?”. That question has a yes/no answer. People often, reflexively, answer “no”.

They should say “Would you like a Coke or Coffee with that?”.

Anyone telling you we should have chosen a settlement freeze instead of release is falling for the same stupid trick.

We shouldn’t be shopping here: the price is too high and the goods on sale are broken and don’t work.

The only thing we, in Israel, don’t know is what is going on behind the scenes to make our leadership play this game. Anyone who says they know what is going on publicly, probably doesn’t know anything. Anyone who knows is keeping very quiet.

Here’s a story from Arutz 7 of a woman who saved one of these terrorists from an angry mod who would have killed him. She thinks he should still be in prison and is “depressed” about him being released.

Twenty-one years ago, Jerusalem woman Bella Freund was propelled into sudden fame when she saved an Arab terrorist from an angry mob. Freund ran across an angry crowd beating a 21-year-old terrorist who had just stabbed and wounded two Jewish children; she protected him with her body for nearly half an hour, taking blows meant for him and preventing the mob from killing him on the spot.

Read the rest.

    I saw the same story yesterday on Aljazera America cable news channel. I thought Aljazera was fairly sympathetic to her point of view and accurately reported how unpopular the prisoner releases are with the Israeli people. I would console Bella by encouraging her and other Israelis to throw the current governing coalition out through the democratic process if they are unhappy with their decisions.

      For what, a lefty coalition that will do even worse? The problem is terrorist-loving Obama who pressures Israel into doing these things in the first place.

    I thought she should have been cut down with the Arab she tried to protect.

    If he had been killed, that would have been one less scumbag to go around killing more Jews.

    I can’t say I’m depressed. Little good it does now that its water under the bridge.
