PM: Releasing Terrorists One of My Most Difficult Decisions
“The decision to release prisoners is one of the most difficult I have had to make as Prime Minister,” Netanyahu told his ministers at a meeting Monday afternoon.
“I am sure that all other prime ministers who have made such decisions thought about them long and hard, as I did, because of the injustice of the whole thing, with convicted murderers being released before completing their terms. My sympathies are with the families of victims” who are seeing justice denied, the Prime Minister said.
