Return to Terror

The dust has hardly settled on the prisoner swap from two weeks ago, and one of the terrorists that we released is already talking about future involvement in terrorism.

Apparently, at least one of the terrorists released two weeks ago doesn’t feel obligated by the declaration he signed committing to abstain from violence and terrorist activity.

Though many feared that the bulk of the 400 prisoners Israel released in the prisoner exchange with the Hezbollah terror group would return to their murderous ways, few expected televised declarations of such intentions.

Steven Smyrek, a 32-year-old German terrorist who converted to Islam gave an alarming interview to a German television station almost immediately following the affixation of his signature to a document promising to renounce violence and terrorism.

Before he even left Israel for Germany, Smyrek gave an interview to Eric Friedler, a German documentary maker. “It’s an honor to die for Islam and for Allah,” he said. “When the order comes you have to carry it out and there’s no time to ask if there is a God or not, or to think what will happen after youíre dead, without feeling you simply have to lay down your life as Allah decreed.”

I cannot believe anyone in their right mind actually believes that an Islamic terrorist who signs a piece of paper stating that he or she abstains from terrorism and violence is actually telling the truth. Have we not learned anything from Oslo?
