Jewish Home Party Head: For Shalit - Release Murderers

Science Minister Daniel Hershkovitz, head of the Jewish Home Party, has suggested in a letter to pre-military academy students that he might support releasing terrorists who murdered Jews in return for kidnapped soldier Gilald Shalit.

The students had written a letter to the Prime Minster slamming the release of murderers in any deal for Shalit and calling on the government not to surrender to the Hamas.
