The list of 26 Palestinian prisoners who will go free, and their victims


The following is a list of the 26 prisoners scheduled for early release from prisons in Israel later this week as a ‘goodwill gesture’ to encourage Palestinian leaders to return to the negotiating table. In all, Israel agreed to eventually release 104 so-called pre-Oslo prisoners.

As we have noted, many in the media (including the Guardian, The Independent, and the Irish Times,) have whitewashed the violent, and often brutal crimes of the prisoners being released, and, conversely, have depicted the families of the soon-to-be released prisoners in a disturbingly sympathetic light.  So, in addition to listing details about the perpetrators, we’ve also included some information on the victims.  (You can see the complete list of pre-Oslo prisoners – information which was translated, edited and published exclusively by CAMERA – here.)

1. Kour Matwa Hamed Faiz (Fatah. Born 1964, resident of Judea & Samaria, arrested 1985) was sentenced to one life term for his part in establishing an armed Fatah cell and for the murder of Menahem Dadon in 1983 and for another attempted murder.

Menahem Dadon from Netivot was 22 years old when he was murdered. He had been sent by his employer to purchase building materials in Gaza and whilst in the shop, was shot in the head at point-blank range. He left a pregnant wife and two daughters.

2. Tsalah Ibrahim Ahmed Mugdad (Fatah. Born 1966, resident of Judea & Samaria, arrested 1993) was sentenced to 32 years imprisonment for the murder of Israel Tennenbaum and was due to be released on 13/6/2025.

Born in Poland in 1921, Israel Tennenbaum from Moshav Vered was a farmer who also worked as a security guard at a hotel in Netanya despite being 72 years old at the time of his death. In June 1993 Tsalah broke into the hotel and murdered Israel Tennenbaum by beating him over the head with a steel rod. He also stole a television from the hotel.

3. Na’anish Naif Abdel Jafar Samir (Born 1967, resident of Judea & Samaria, arrested 1989) was sentenced to a life term for his part in the murder of 24 year-old reservist Binyamin Meisner in February 1989.

Na’anish was part of a group which lured Meisner into an ally in Nablus (Schem) in which they had pre-prepared a stockpile of rocks. Binyamin Meisner was killed by a blow to the head with a stone. 

4. Arshid A’Hamid Yusuf Yusuf (Fatah. Born 1968, resident of Judea & Samaria, arrested 1993) was sentenced to five life sentences after having been convicted of the murders of Nadal Rabu Jaab, Adnan Ayaad Dib, Mufid Canaan, Tawfik Jaradat and Ibrahim Said Ziad by stabbing. Arsheed was also indicted on several additional counts of attempted murder of others he also suspected of ‘collaboration’.

5. Al-Haj Othman Amar Mustafa (Fatah. Born 1968, resident of Judea & Samaria, arrested 1989) was sentenced to a life sentence for his part in the murder of 48 year-old Frederick Steven Rosenfeld in June 1989.

Rosenfeld was hiking in the hills near Ariel when he came across a group of shepherds who stabbed him to death with his own knife and hid his body.

6. Matslah Abdallah Salama (Hamas. Born 1969, resident of the Gaza Strip, arrested 1993) was sentenced to one life sentence for the murder of Reuven David in Petah Tikva in 1991.

Together with an accomplice, Matslah entered 59 year-old Iraqi-born Reuven David’s mini-market, tied him up, gagged him and then beat him to death, before escaping in the victim’s car. He left a wife, three children and several grandchildren.

7. Abu-Musa Salam Ali Atia (Fatah. Born 1971, resident of the Gaza Strip, arrested 1994) was convicted of the murder of Isaac Rotenburg from Holon as part of an initiation rite for joining a terror organisation and sentenced to one life sentence.

Holocaust survivor Isaac Rotenberg was born in Poland. Most of his family was murdered in the Sobibor death camp, but Isaac managed to escape and joined the partisans. After the war he tried to make his way by ship to mandate Palestine, but was interred by the British and sent to a detention camp in Cyprus until 1947. After his release Isaac arrived in pre-state Israel and fought in the War of Independence. He continued his work as a plasterer even after pension age and in March 1994 was at his place of work in Petah Tikva when he was attacked by two Palestinian labourers with axes. He died, aged 67, two days later.

9. Tsualha Bad Almajid Mahamad  (Fatah. Born 1973, resident of Judea & Samaria, arrested 1990) was sentenced to one life sentence for the murder – together with accomplices – of Baruch Heizler and the attempted murder of Betty Malka, Shai Cohen and Avishag Cohen in 1990 whilst he was still a minor.

Baruch Heizler – named after his grandfather who was killed by Jordanian shelling of the Old City of Jerusalem during the War of Independence – was 24 when he was stabbed to death whilst travelling on the number 66 bus in Ramat Gan after having missed the ride to his seminary. Three other passengers were injured in the same attack.

Born 1964, resident of the Gaza Strip, arrested 1993) was sentenced to 29 years’ imprisonment after having been convicted of accessory to murder and was due to be released on 14/3/2022. Sha’at drove his accomplices to and from the scene of the murder of 51 year-old Simcha Levi in Khan Yunis in 1993.

Simcha Levi was born in Persia in 1942 and immigrated with her family to Israel in 1950, settling in Moshav Patish in the Negev. Simcha’s job was to drive Arab labourers to their place of work and on the day of her murder she picked up female labourers in Khan Yunis in the south Gaza Strip. Three terrorists disguised as women beat and stabbed her to death in her vehicle in a pre-planned attack.

11. Abdel-Aal Sayid Ouda Yusef ( Born 1979, resident of the Gaza Strip, arrested in 1994) was sentenced to 22 years for, along with accomplices, throwing 2 grenades – which did not explode – at Border Police forces. On a different occasion, he placed a bomb next to a Border Police facility but the explosion did not cause damage. Also, he knew about the intention to harm a civilian and aided the process of his murder (Ian Sean Feinberg) by passing information to the perpetrators regarding the absence of soldiers in the area. Also, together with his cell, tortured a local resident suspected of collaboration. After he left the scene, the victim was murdered by his two accomplices. On a separate occasion, he intended to murder a local resident suspected of collaboration.  

Ian Sean Feinberg was born in South Africa and immigrated to Israel after finishing High School. Having qualified in law before his enlistment, he spent five years serving as a lawyer in the Gaza Strip and was later involved professionally with Palestinian economic development as a legal advisor. On April 18th 1993, during a business meeting in the Rimal neighborhood of Gaza City, terrorists burst into the room announcing that they had ‘come to kill the Jew’. They then murdered him with gunshots and an axe. Ian was 30 at the time of his death. He was survived by his wife and three children.

12. Barbach Faiz Rajab Madhat (PFLP. Born 1974, resident of the Gaza Strip, arrested in 1994) was sentenced to life imprisonment for, together with his accomplices, stabbing his employer (Moshe Becker) to death.

Moshe Beker was born in Poland in 1933 and immigrated to mandate Palestine in 1935. On January 21st 1994, Moshe arrived at his orchard in Rishon L’Tsion to see whether his employee had arrived. He was ambushed there by three terrorists, who had slept on site and waited for him. They attacked him, stabbed him to death with a knife and a pair of pruning shears, and fled. Moshe, 61 at the time of his death, was survived by his wife and four children.

13. Raai Ibrahim Salam Ali (Fatah. Born 1957, resident of the Gaza Strip, arrested 1994) was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder – using an axe – of 79 year-old Morris Aizenshtat who was sitting on a park bench in Kfar Saba reading a book at the time.

Amnon Pomerantz was an electrical engineer and scientist and worked in research and development. On September 20th 1990, Amnon left his home in Havatzelet Hasharon for reserve duty in Gaza. Three hours later, he was brutally murdered by a gang of Palestinian rioters after he took a wrong turn on the way to his base and accidentally entered Al Burj Refugee Camp. After they threw rocks at him, they poured gasoline on his vehicle and ignited it with Amnon inside. It was noted that Nashbat did not express regret for his acts. Amnon was 46 at the time of his death. He was survived by his wife and three children.

15. Mortja Hasin Ghanam Samir (Hamas. Born in 1970, resident of the Gaza Strip, arrested 1993) was sentenced to 20 years in prison for his part in the abduction, interrogation, torture and murder of four local residents suspected of collaboration with the authorities – Samir Alsilawi, Khaled Malka, Nasser Akila, and Ali Al Zaabot. Also, he abducted local residents suspected of ‘moral crimes’ for interrogation. His release date was 28.10.2013.

16. Sualha Fazah Ahmed Husseini (Fatah. Born 1973, resident of Judea and Samaria, arrested 1990) was given a life sentence for stabbing Baruch Heizler to death on a bus together with an accomplice and also attempting to murder three additional female passengers.

Avraham Kinstler was born in Polish Galicia in 1908 and immigrated to mandate Palestine with his wife. On July 7th 1992, Avraham – who had not retired – went to work in his orchard as usual. There he was ambushed by a terrorist and murdered with a farming implement.  Avraham was 84 years old at the time of his death. He was survived by three daughters and six grandchildren.

Born 1971, resident of the Gaza Strip, arrested 1994) was given two life terms for breaking into an apartment in Ramle and murdering two people, David Dedi and Chaim Weitzman together with accomplices. Afterwards, they mutilated the bodies and cut off their ears as proof of the action.

David Dadi was born in Tunis and immigrated to Israel as a child, settling in Ramla. On December 31st 1993, David, along with his acquaintance Chaim Weizman, was stabbed to death in his sleep in his flat in Ramla by labourers from Gaza who were working in a neighboring apartment. David was 43 at the time of his death.

Chaim Weizman was born in Morocco. His family immigrated to Israel in 1962 and settled in Ramla. On December 31st 1993 – aged 33 – he was stabbed to death in his sleep by terrorists whilst staying at the apartment of his friend David Dadi. He was survived by his son, parents and siblings.

Chaim Mizrachi grew up in Bat Yam and Holon, later moving to Beit El. On Friday, 29th October 1993, he went to buy eggs from an Arab-owned farm near his home, and was met by terrorists who attacked him and fled in his vehicle after wounding him and stuffing him into the car’s trunk. The terrorists murdered Chaim, then burned and abandoned the vehicle north of Ramallah. Chaim was 30 at the time of his death, and was survived by his pregnant wife, his parents, his sisters, and his brother. Half-a-year after his murder, his daughter was born.

  1. Nearly all are in their 40’s when some are still in their 30’s.
    Hope they’ve castrated them before letting them go.
    Most of them are obviously unfit parents.

  2. Let us put this in context. A situation of war is created by the illegal occupation and ethnic cleansing of Palestine by the Zionists. That has brought about a reaction and as so many people keep saying on this blog that there are consequences. Well there are and Palestinians are suffering the worst as reported by the Israeli Human Rights organisation. What is even worse for the killings of the Palestinians nobody has been brought to account despite numerous international reports blaming the Israeli Defense Force.

    “A majority of Palestinian fatalities in the fighting between Israel and Hamas last November were civilians, according to a report by the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem.

    B’Tselem on Thursday said 87 Palestinian civilians were killed by Israel during the two-week Operation Pillar of Defense. In addition, 62 Palestinian casualties were combatants; the role of 11 others could not be determined.
    Some 80 percent of civilian deaths occurred during the last four days of the conflict.”

    What is even worse, the Israeli side is even now doing everything possible to scupper the talks on peace negotiations by deciding to build in the occupied West Bank Jewish only houses.

    Who is the real criminal here?

    • Rafi you told me yesterday that you had a Grandson, Abraham.

      “Israel Tennenbaum from Moshav Vered was a farmer who also worked as a security guard at a hotel in Netanya despite being 72 years old at the time of his death. In June 1993 Tsalah broke into the hotel and murdered Israel Tennenbaum by beating him over the head with a steel rod. He also stole a television from the hotel.”

      How would Abraham feel if you were the 72 year old murdered by someone who broke into a Hotel and stole a TV set?

    • all that your fight is stupid-Hamas uses human poverty-the greater the poverty, hopelessness,Hamas more power.You just want to fight, destroy.Work, something build not.Then yell to the world-we are hungry.Yes the poor gentleman from Poland was heavy enemy.You are stupid and lazy. Ends Iran, Hamas ends.celebrating killers.You make me sick.

    • How is this for context. The Palestinians and their mufti were the allies of the Nazis. The mufti was a guest of Hitler through out the war, and hoped to wipe out the Jews in Palestine after a Nazi victory. Your heroes lost and they have to pay the price. Instead of freeing the prisoners they should be killed publicly and stuffed into pig carcasses. Then their families should be killed and their towns razed to the ground and planted over.

      • John Smith ,you are one sick individual and should be arrested for incitement to commit murder.

        • Mr. Smith said it with quite strong words, but he is completely right. These prisoners should have been extrajuditialy executed (by every means necessary) .. a long time ago. This wouldn’t be a murder, only simple justice.

  3. I will be dead – But how you will feel if a government sent its defense force and killed 13 members of your extended family. Besides how do you feel as somebody who has been a party to electing a government that has been instrumental in killing civilians? Perhaps you need to reflect on your complicity in crimes against humanity and also stop trying to divert debate to my death. In the context of what is going on it is immaterial.

    • Rafi I asked you a polite question about how your own Grandson would feel if you were murdered as, 72 year old, Israel Tennenbaum was during the theft of a TV set from a Hotel.
      I wish I could write that I am surprised by your puerile attempt to divert from my question, but I am not.

      “Besides how do you feel as somebody who has been a party to electing a government that has been instrumental in killing civilians?”

      Rafi the last Government I was ‘party to electing’ was the Government of Wales in 2011.
      Perhaps you could tell me exactly when the Welsh Government has been instrumental in killing civilians?

    • Rafi:

      “Perhaps you need to reflect on your complicity in crimes…”

      The only one complicit in anything is you.
      Complicit in murders and the excusing of and cover ups of such crimes.

  4. I will let the world be judge of whose response is puerile. I hope this dialogue is not about my murder. I thought we were discussing the killings and mayhem in Palestine. My response is another attempt to bring you back to the subject and not to my person.

    Again, here is a good reason for why the violence in Palestine continues and who is responsible – Even the Deputy Prime Minister of Israel knows who to blame why do you find it so difficult to grasp that a government elected by its citizens is responsible for so much mayhem. It does not compare with individual crimes.

    “On Sunday, Lapid called the move a “double mistake,” and said that “the solutions to the housing problems must be enacted in the regions with high demands… The use of resources allocated for middle class housing as a show of defiance in the face of the Americans, in order to impede peace talks, is not helpful to the process.”

    Speaking to Army Radio on Monday, Elkin said that “Lapid’s response was harsher than that of the Americans.” He added that Israel has the right, even the obligation to build, in order to “maintain a Jewish majority in Jerusalem.””

    Now we can talk of murders in Palestine or Wales but they are irrelevant to our discussion on the peace process. Besides crimes committed by the state is much more significant than of individuals. Partly, because the crimes committed by the state are done in the name of its citizens and also generally crimes of the state are more draconian in its impact.

    • Rafi:

      “why do you find it so difficult to grasp that a government elected by its citizens is responsible for so much mayhem.(?)”

      We Don’t! We told you we blame Hamas time and time again. You don’t listen do you?
      Your grasp of English punctuation is terrible. even my 7 year old knows when a question mark is due.
      Lucky we don’t use Spanish…

    • Rafi:

      “Now we can talk of murders in Palestine or Wales but they are irrelevant to our discussion on the peace process. Besides crimes committed by the state is much more significant than of individuals. Partly, because the crimes committed by the state are done in the name of its citizens and also generally crimes of the state are more draconian in its impact.”

      Befoon,
      First, we were not discussing the peace process but the release of murdereres.
      Second, Those murders were done by both parties controlling the Palestinians.
      In case you didn’t realise.

    • I note that whenever a supporter of the murders of Israelis (Jews and Arabs) is put on the sport s/he tries to deflect (because of the discomfort of not being able to answer, presumably because answering honestly might encourage too much self-reflection which in turn would add to the discomfort) and indulge in grandiose statements such as “the world will judge..”

      Rafi Mirza cannot deal with the discomfort of being aware, at base level, that Palestinian/Arab terror is not caused by Israel, that Islamist scum choose to engage in it and just as easily could decide not to, and that these animals, and perhaps he himself, hate Jews not because of the existence of Israel, but rather hate Israel because it is successful and Jewish.

      Israel should not have caved in and released these animals back into the wild. The PA and Hamas will perceive it as weakness and a green light to up the ante on terror.

  5. I misunderstood – I thought the release of prisoners was all part of the start of the peace talks. My apologies – but so let us talk of the murders of thousands of Palestinians aided and abetted by the Zionist entity that you support. Perhaps you can explain why are those accused of these murders not brought to account. In that context it is very unfair that you insist Palestinians accused should stay in prison for ever. many have served more time than would serve for a life sentence in Wales.

    • Rafi:
      “…Zionist entity..”

      Who’s that?
      Please clarify and then you may receive a rational reply.
      sorry but I don’t play with Press TV trolls.
      You have just been spotted.

    • Rafi:

      “but so let us talk of the murders of thousands of Palestinians … Perhaps you can explain why are those accused of these murders not brought to account.(?)”

      I can’t explain why so many Egyptians, Jordanians, Lebanese, Syrians and Kuwaities are not brought to justice for these crimes.
      As for the Palestinians killing their own, I can only assume that they forgive each other.

      BTW, your grammar is terrible. Please start using punctuation marks so we know what you’re on about, or do Pakistani keyboards don’t have these marks?

    • The proof of that pudding will be in the extent to which Abbas and his fellow clowns can fully engage. It beggars belief that, on Palestinians’ past showing, israel could even contemplate believing them.

  6. I do not want to be disrespectful to the Welsh. I am sure your abusive nature is do to your proximity to the criminal Zionist movement and nothing to do with your Welsh origins. Abuse is no alternative to a rational argument. Now where shall I put that ?

    • ” Abuse is no alternative to a rational argument”
      Quite right Rafi, and making false and unsubstantiated accusations are no alternative either.
      In case you need to be reminded, in your post @4:37 AM you accused me of,
      “Besides how do you feel as somebody who has been a party to electing a government that has been instrumental in killing civilians?”

      I pointed out to you that you are wrong, that the Government I was a party to electing had not been instrumental in killing civilians. Anybody with an ounce of decency would have withdrawn the allegation and apologised.

      You can either substantiate your allegation or withdraw it?
      Should you choose to do neither then you will stand condemned by your own posts as a liar who not only posts libellous accusations, but is stupid enough to twist and turn in a pathetic attempt to divert attention rather than admit they are wrong.

      “Now where shall I put that ?”
      I can think of several places, all of which would bring tears to your eyes.

  7. Rafi: ” I am sure your abusive nature is do to your proximity to the criminal Zionist movement”.

    You are a pompous bigot Rafi. Full of double standards and barely concealed malice and hatred for all the citizens of Israel. Like the best anti-Semites of 70 years ago, you are obsessed with the ‘criminal’ nature of the ‘Jew’ – now morphed into an obsession with ‘Zionist’ criminality, that justifies in your hateful mind, why old Jews are not worthy of your sympathy when they are bludgeoned to death in cold blood. Says it all about the moral depravity that underlines your desire to place these bloodthirsty murders in ‘context’.

    And talking of ‘context’, tell us again about the criminal nature of the regimes in Gaza, Syria, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Pakistan, Egypt, or is your feeble mind incapable of sympathy for those who are oppressed, tortured and murdered if it is not at the hands of the ‘criminal Zionist usurpers’.

      • Rafi is a bit like the Pakistani Cricket team in the past 10 years.

        They’re a shadow of their former selves and they can’t even cheat in a belivable way.

  8. This is what the real bigot sound like
    “Speaking to Army Radio on Monday, Elkin said that “Lapid’s response was harsher than that of the Americans.” He added that Israel has the right, even the obligation to build, in order to “maintain a Jewish majority in Jerusalem.””

    In another words the Zionists according to this bigot has every right to clean Jerusalem off the Palestinians. Perhaps Groovy Times can explain why he thinks Elkin is not bigoted or downright racist. When those in the Israeli government feel that the actions of the Israeli government are totally counter productive and we individuals on this blog supporting those acts of the Zionist government that are designed to break the peace process it speaks volumes of who is bigoted here. Perhaps I will face a few more abuse now and all I do is quote from the Jewish sources.

    • Oh Dear Rafi
      “Perhaps I will face a few more abuse now and all I do is quote from the Jewish sources.”
      Now you have become careless and let your mask slip. Not ‘Zionist sources’ but ‘Jewish sources’

      “This is what the real bigot sound like”
      Indeed it is Rafi and an anti-Semitic bigot at that.

    • I think you need a dictionary Rafi.
      Try the term Bigot.
      http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/bigot

      As for your racist comment about “clean Jerusalem off the Palestinians”, one can only assume you hate Arabs.
      Do you think they are dirty?
      Just for you info, adding more Jewish people to neighbourhoods they were once expelled from does not mean an Exodus of Arabs must follow.
      They do live side by side you know?
      Oh, but how could you know. Pakistan removed all its Jews long long ago.

      • For your records Rafi:

        “Most of the Karachi Jews now live in Ramla, Israel, Mumbai, India and Toronto, Canada and built a synagogue they named Magen Shalome after the Pakistani Synagogue in Ramla. Developments in the Middle East peace process such as the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza strip led to the first high level meeting between Israeli and Pakistani foreign ministers. The foreign ministers of both countries met publicly for the first time in Istanbul, a diplomatic breakthrough brokered by Turkey.

        Rachel Joseph, the last Bene Israel Jew of Pakistan, left Karachi for Israel. There are no Bene Israel Jews remaining in Pakistan.”

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Jews_in_Pakistan

    • Rafi, thanks for confirming what an obsessive bigot you really are. I notice that in your response you haven’t supplied us with quotes from sources in lets say Jordan, Saudi or the PA, all of which have official Judenrein policies – perhaps you can explain why these particular practices and policies aren’t discriminatory, and why such blatant racism doesn’t register on your moral radar and why you only obsess over the ‘criminality’ of the ‘Zionists’?

      As for feeling sorry for yourself for being a victim of ‘Zionist’ abuse – just more blatant hypocrisy on your part – that you think you can throw around your accusations of racism and criminality, but are uber sensitive when the dark underbelly of your ‘progressive’ thinking is exposed for what it really is – a hatred of Israel based on historical and cultural prejudices that totally distort your understanding of reality.

  9. Gerald, let’s face it, Israel-hatred and Jew-hatred are indivisible in Rafi Mirza’s mind, fed by pernicious envy of Israel’s success and the self-evident failure of most Islamic countries, and the inability of these haters even to countenance that they may possibly be wrong.

    This head mess is compounded by the fact that Muslims are raised to believe that they are beloved of their allah and superior to the Jews. All around them, however, they see evidence of the contrary but never, not once because of their phobia of being shown to be in the wrong, do they cop on to the fact that perhaps if they collaborated and cooperated with their Jewish neighbour rather than tried to eradicate her they too would benefit!

  10. Itsik, I do not think you can call the Israeli Deputy Prime Minister anti-Semite just because he is critical of the Zionist government’s attempts to scupper peace talks.

    • Did I call him that?
      Never realized you were the Israeli deputy PM.
      Press TV will not be paying you for this comment cause you said the forbidden word “Israeli”…

      Wooooo…

  11. Itsik I agree with you anybody can live anywhere but no need for racist exclusive settlements. Why not just allow everybody to return where they were expelled from. Good idea. I will support it. It seems you think is a good idea.

    • Rafi,

      I doubt the Pakistanis would like to receive their Jews back.
      They didn’t want a Jew as the Cricket coach a few years back.
      I doubt any Arab nation would like their Jews back.

      In fact I very much doubt any Jew would like to return to an Islamic country. Especially those who were never born there and worked hard to build their homes from nothing while other “refugees” were sitting on their hands doing nothing to improve their conditions except asking the UN for charity money every year.

      Don’t forget why most Jews left Islamic lands to begin with.

      I’d like to remind that one Jew tried to return to Bengazi last year and guess what…
      They threatened to behead him if he wouldn’t leave…

      But I guess you don’t believe Jews do you, Rafi?

  12. Rafi are you going to join in with the civilised World and CONDEMN the proposed public executions in Gaza?

    Reacting to statements setting out plans for public execution of prisoners in Gaza following Eid al-Fitr, Foreign Office Minister for the Middle East Alistair Burt said:
    “I am deeply concerned at reports of plans to publicly execute prisoners in Gaza in the coming days.”

  13. I earlier happened to tune into a CNN report about this issue. Their guest via video link – some law professor from the U. of California’s Hastings School of Law, I think – was dismissing the release as a “minor gesture”, simply because the prisoners only constitute 0.5% of all Palestinian prisoners held by Israel.

    He made no mention of the crimes they were jailed for.

  14. Why the EU supports this? Islamists, terrorist? This does not make any sense.
    Europeans are morons and till now I did not believe that Israeli government either.
    What is the point of this action? Let a group of murderers free?

  15. Price for peace that Israel has paid a terrible. At least the world will see, what are the “Palestinian martyrs.” Israel, you are not alone, we stay behind you! Miroslav Vaclavek, Czech republic .

  16. Mirza aka NSIsmail aka whatever is not content with the release of his comrades in murder.
