Olmert government seeks to free Arab terrorists WITH blood on their hands

Guess they are running out of terrorists without blood on their hands...

( Ministers met Monday morning to broaden the range of terrorists Israel may release in an effort to include arch-terrorist Marwan Barghouti. To do so they are considering narrowing the definition of the term "blood on their hands," to no longer include the one who gave the order.

Barghouti has headed every prisoner release list demanded by the Palestinian Authority in negotiations with Israel. The Tanzim terrorist leader is serving five life sentences in Israeli prison for master-minding attacks that killed five Israelis and wounded many more. Tanzim is affiliated with Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah faction.

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was scheduled to meet with the group, which included Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, Justice Minister Daniel Friedmann, Vice Premier Chaim Ramon, Public Security Minister Avi Dichter and Minister without Portfolio Ami Ayalon. Livni later met with the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee to update its members on the discussions that took place between the ministers.

Committee head and Kadima Knesset Member Tzachi HaNegbi told Arutz 7's Israel National Radio flatly that he opposed relaxing the definition of what constitutes "blood on the hands" of terrorists. "I object to the release of murderers. A murderer is a murderer regardless of legal definitions. I hope there will be no relaxation of the term 'murderer.' Anyone who murdered Jews belongs under lock and key. There can be concession or flexibility in this matter."

Likud Knesset Member Yuval Steinitz, a member of the committee, also expressed outrage in an interview with Voice of Israel government radio after the meeting. "According to the government's new formulae, a killer is no longer a killer and the terrorist Palestinian Authority is a peace partner," he said.

Left-wing Meretz Knesset Member Avshalom Vilan was in favor of the idea. "Israel should stop dealing with definitions and rigid standards," he said. "In Israel too there are fighters who killed terrorists and can be considered as those with 'blood on their hands.' We call them terrorists but they [PA Arabs] call them freedom fighters."

Tell me again how it is a deterrent against islamic terrorism to free the most brutal terrorist murderers from prison as a "good will gesture" to terrorists? Self-loathing liberal Jews are clearly some of the biggest morons on earth...with apologies to morons everywhere who are offended by my comparison.
