Israel set to release 87 Palestinian prisoners by Monday afternoon

Posted by Atilla89 on October 1, 2007

What are you doing Olmert? Why are you doing this to Israel? More from Haaretz.

Israel was set Monday to release 87 Palestinian prisoners in a move designed to bolster moderate Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

The prisoners were expected to released around midday, according to Prisons Authority spokesman Yaron Zamir. The release had initially be planned for 9 A.M.

Most of the prisoners are from the West Bank, which is controlled by Abbas and his government of moderates. Around one-third is residents of the Gaza Strip, which has been ruled by Abbas’ rivals from the Islamic group Hamas since they defeated the forces of Abbas’ Fatah movement in June.

Monday’s scheduled prisoner release, the second in recent months, is an Israeli move meant to support Abbas in his power struggle with Hamas. The prisoners are mostly members of Fatah movement, along with several who are members of smaller Palestinian factions. None belong to Hamas.

Israel is holding around 11,000 Palestinian prisoners, and their release is a central Palestinian demand.

So in order to progress onto a peace agreement with have to release terrorists? Exactly what do we get in return? A stop to the violence, at least temporarily? No such thing. It is almost certain that at least some of those released will continue their terrorist ways.

One of the comments I found on the talk back section was good. Here it is by Marc Hamil

First I must correct the article because it refers to Abbas` government of “moderates”. What is “moderate” about his government? That they are willing to receive money and land from everyone with out giving or doing anything? I prefer to Hamas for at least you know where you stand with them (hint:does not smell good).

Secondly, Already about 200 additional Jews and Arabs have been killed by Palestinian Arab freed from Israeli prisons. Does Olmert and Peres want 200 more dead innocents because of these freed terrorist roaming free? Do not make this very big mistake AGAIN!. Thank you!
