“Prisoner releases only embolden terrorists by giving them the feeling that even if they are caught, their punishment will be brief. Worse, by leading terrorists to think such demands are likely to be met, they encourage precisely the terrorist blackmail they are supposed to defuse.”
—Fighting Terrorism: How Democracies Can Defeat Domestic and International Terrorists, by Benjamin Netanyahu
The Roth Family, whose daughter Malki was murdered in the Sbarro terror atrocity, has posted a petition online asking that Ahlam Tamimi—who planned the Sbarro massacre, drove the suicide bomber to the restaurant, and then broadcast news about the attack on television without mentioning her own involvement, and who has said she would do it again—be removed from the list of terrorists being freed in the trade for Gilad Shalit.
Seraphic Secret urges all our readers to sign the online petition here.
