Faces of Terror

Pages: 1 2

“The people want a new Gilad!” So went the menacing cry in Gaza this week, as tens of thousands of Palestinians celebrated the swap deal that will return Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit home in exchange for the release of over 1,000 Palestinian prisoners and terrorists.

If for many Israelis the Shalit deal inspired sober reflection about the painful price the country will pay for the life of just one Israeli, for Palestinians it proved yet another occasion to rejoice at the prospect of killing more Jews, seizing more soldiers, and inflicting further harm on the Jewish State. But the morbid glee that has greeted the return of unrepentant murderers on the Palestinian side is only one of the dark consequences of the prisoner swap. A closer look at those released in the deal – a murder’s row that includes many who have vowed to return to terrorism – provides a full measure of Israel’s sacrifice.

Among them are men like Abdel Aziz Salha. In 2000, Salha helped kill two Israeli soldiers who had made a wrong turn in the West Bank village of Ramallah. In a gruesome scene following their murder, Salha waived his bloodstained hands out the window of the police station where the soldiers had been killed, as triumphant crowds cheered the bloody deed. The sickening image became iconic of the savagery of the first intifada.

Also freed was Wafa al-Bass. In 2005, al-Bass was caught while attempting to carry out a suicide bombing in a crowded Israeli hospital. Al-Bass was being treated at the hospital, free of charge, for burns that she had suffered in a cooking accident at home, though that did not deter her from going ahead with the attack. When her attempt to explode her suicide belt failed, al-Bass ended up in prison. Today, al-Bass remains committed to the terrorist cause. Upon her arrival in Gaza this week, she said that Palestinians should “take another Shalit” every year until all Palestinian prisoners are freed from Israeli jails.

    As has been discussed before at length, the re-intorduction of the death penalty in Israel is fast becoming a necessity. Israel as democratic and anti death penalty state must not be deterred from the introduction of capital punishment for specific crimes committed by our enemies.such as Tamimi,Yehya Sinwar and all the other despicable murderers of their ilk. The Capital punishment introduction would discourage many of these butchers to attempt these crimes but also knowing that they will be dispatched to paradise as per their belief, would be doing tem a special service and ridding the earth of their kind once and for all.

    Just don't bother with capture part of the capture of kill policy.

    Make the terrorists pay a far too heavy price for terrorism.

      Well they want to die for islam, so let's help them along that glorious path, right straight to HELL.


    just goes to show you what low-life vile animals the arabs are…Ben Shapiro had it right – get Shalit back – hand over the arab rats – then warn them that the bombs are coming too…

    Hmmm…..looks like the Best and the Brightest of Palestine to me.

    The photo of every single one of the released Barbaric Muslim Terrorists who were released should be shown throughout the world. Their photos should be posted at all airports, railway stations, bus stations, movie theaters, supermarkets, post offices, parks, etc. People have THE RIGHT TO KNOW who these monsters are so that they can be on their guard against these violent, hate-filled terrorist killers.

    In Judea and Samaria, Muslims are chanting: "The people want a new Shalit"

    There is a radical difference between Muslim and non-Muslim culture and beliefs. Non-Muslims believe all murders are evil and when murderers are released, people are angry and disgusted.

    But in the Palestinian Authority, savage murderers of infidel Jews are regarded as huge HEROES by PA Muslims. Sports teams, streets, schools, city squares are dedicated to, and named after barbaric killers of Jewish innocents. Muslims are filled with joy over the release of cruel killers-they are celebrating and setting off fireworks.

    Non-Muslims regard murder as EVIL and the wicked breaking of G-D's Law. It is revolting and inhuman that these Muslims regard murder as EXTREMELY GOOD. The "peace" they are planning is a Second Holocaust of Jews. And the immoral Quartet want them to achieve their goal with a Muslim terror state implant in little Israel.

    Britain's Cameron: "I hope this prisoner exchange will bring peace a step closer,"
    UN Secretary General: "Ban Ki-moon sees peace process boost from prisoner swap deal."

    For Cameron and Ban Ki-moon, peace is achieved by increasing violent jihad against Jews in the releasing of over a thousand inhuman Muslim monster killers with blood on their hands.

    Gilad shouldn't have been freed in this manner….if the Mossad behaved like they were supposed to have behaved….he'd have been rescued a long time ago and his captors been executed.

  • WilliamJamesWard

    It creates and interlude where people can aptly speculate as to what is really
    going on. It may be that Bibi wanted Gilad back and before doing what
    Israel has been forced into a corner to come to do, flatten the west bank and
    gaza, move Israel's borders out to the original promised land and not by the
    League of Nations but as defined by the Almighty Himself…………..William

    IMO it's a certainty that these darlings have implants that will allow Israel to track them.

    • Vermont Yid

      And if they do have implants, then what? Do you think if they do have implants that they don't know it? Do you think that they can't be removed?

      You're an idiot.

    Never before in my life have I been so ashamed of Israel.

    The insanity/stupidity of trading 1,027 murderers and terrorists for one Israeli soldier will cost Israel dearly. The blood of those Jews who will be killed by those who are released will be on the hands of Netanyahu and all others in the Israeli government who were in on the decision. That 80% of Israelis were in favor of the trade does not speak well of the common sense of the average Israeli.

    The safety of Israeli citizens who travel beyond Israel's borders is now, at best, perilous. At worst, it's a moot point. The message Israel has sent is: Kidnap Israelis and you will receive 1,000 times the number of your murderous brethren who are in Israeli prisons.


    Kahane was right. You are wrong. And now you are going to reap the rewards of your insipid decision. May G-d help you.
