Abbas Will Ask Obama to Force Israel to Free Terrorists

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


And considering the number of terrorists that Israel has freed over the years, we are talking about the worst of the worst.

The official said that Abbas would ask Obama to put pressure on Israel to release scores of prisoners, especially those who were imprisoned before the signing of the Oslo Accords, in order to pave the way for the resumption of the peace talks.

“The issue of the prisoners will be the No. 1 issue during the talks with President Obama,” the official said.

Considering the amount of terrorists that Israel released after the Oslo Accords and then in various confidence building measures and finally in exchange for Gilad Shalit, anyone locked up from before Oslo is seriously bad news.

Israel originally refused to release terrorists with blood on their hands. And then it did. It released some of the worst monsters in prison, including Samir Kuntar, who murdered a little girl, and has gone back to Lebanon still promoting terrorism.

If the Palestinian Authority leader really wants peace, why is he refusing to negotiate until a bunch of his terrorist buddies are released from prison?

Because these aren’t peace negotiations. These are just hostage negotiations.

    Wht is there to say, based on past behavior, why shouldn't Abbas ask for this?

  • Steve

    They are absurd. They don't want peace. They want their terrorists back so the terrorists can continue killing Israelis. Abbas finds every excuse not to negotiate peace. Arafat did the same thing. The only way that arafat would even talk about peace, was to have the USA put millions in his pocket. It's not about the palis. It's about abbas and his cohorts. If Obama even brings it up, Bibi should walk out.

    It is so simple, Obama is as dirty as Abbas, both have stage names and are laughing
    up thier sleves at the Israeli Govenment and spit on America, honesty and what is right

    The question is not what Arafat's protege, Abu Mazen, asks Obama. The question is: what will Bibi's answer be? If past is prologue, this is where the reality lies – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/07/15/israels-ship-

    The only terrorists are the Jewish criminals in the Zionist entity who murder women, children, and brave soldiers of Allah. O jews, Muslim land must be retaken and Muslim blood avenged!

      Jealousy makes you ugly!

      • Lillith66

        And very, very stupid!

    • Lillith66

      Your soldiers of Alahggahhha, are only brave when they are raping young children and stoning woman to death! When they face a real man they cr@p themselves and run away like little pu$$ies!

      Don't worry, Malik: Although you come in the name of the crescent instead of the swastika of 70 years ago, you'll meet the same fate. Guaranteed, because you're doing your darnedest to make yourself hated everywhere.

      Here's a hint: Thailand. If you can't live peacefully with Buddhists, then you are the problem.

      malik take a nice hot dump in your koran

    • Steve

      Brave soldiers of allah is an oxymoron. The Islamic terrorists have written the book on how to hide behind women and children. Included in the book is also how to put rockets in the hospitals and apartments.

  • Varda

    Well, why not Israel demand tit for tat and insist on the US freeing Pollard?

    • Trevor

      Alternatively, Abbas, instead of asking for terrorists be freed, should ask that terrorists in the IDF be jailed….Everyone wins!

    • defcon 4

      From what I understand Pollard didn't merely sell US military secrets to Israel, but Communist bloc countries as well.

  • Abelardy

    it is all about money- Abbas is being given billions of dollars which will end once the peace is negotiated. Then what?

    • Jasper Owen

      Blame the US and EU for contributing billions to the pot, all of which is idiscretionary spending
