Israeli Politics



Terrorists murderers and accomplices should never be set free.

Looks like Israel is in need of a new generation of leaders, perhaps Danon is the real deal, Dippy Livni and a host of others do not cut the mustard. Yet another reason why career politicians are not in the people’s best interest, they keep popping up and promoting their old failed ideas.

Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon (Likud) said Wednesday morning that there is internal opposition within Likud to the release of terrorist prisoners as “gestures” toward the Palestinian Authority (PA).

“There is no doubt that this is a sad day for every citizen in Israel, who sees terrorist murderers being released and celebrating,” Danon told Voice of Israel public radio.

“The decision is wrong, morally,” he explained. “The message that is being delivered is that we release terrorist sin return for nothing. What have we received in return for the release? The smile on the face of [Justice] Minister Tzipi Livni and Secretary of State John Kerry? The message thatthe next generation of terrorists gets is that no matter what you do, in the end, you will be released.”

“When we released Gilad Shalit,” said Danon, “we received something in return. We got Gilad back at home. But we all know where the negotiations are leading – nowehere. The same terrorists who are being released will continue to incite, and that is why I oppose the move.”

When the interviewer, Yaakov Ahimeir, asked him what he was doing in the very same government that carried out this move, Danon said: “There are numerous voices within Likud that do not like this direction, and are certainly examining where we are going.

“I intend to fight this,” he said. “We will do this in any way needed. There are many good people in Likud who will not allow Tzipi Livni to lead us. This will not happen on our watch.”
