Cabinet Set to Approve Freedom for PA Terrorists


The Cabinet is set to vote its approval Sunday morning of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s latest “good will gesture” to Palestinian Authority Chairman and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas, freedom for 150-200 PA terrorists.
 
The release is expected to come next Monday, on the eve of U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s return to the region in her latest effort to keep the final status talks moving between Israel and the PA.

According to a report published in the Jerusalem Post, the list of terrorists who will be returned to the streets will definitely include some with “blood on their hands” – that is, those who have been directly involved in attacks that resulted in the murder of Israelis.
