      Terrorist Release 'A Sad Chapter in Israeli History'

      Hundreds of Israelis poured onto the Jerusalem streets to protest in front of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's residence Monday night, marching to the Old City in a display of opposition to the imminent release of 26 terrorists in the third batch of "gestures" for peace talks with the Palestinian Authority (PA).

      Jeremy Dery, a new immigrant who joined the protest, spoke to Arutz Sheva, saying "this is truly a sad chapter in Israeli history." Dery pointed out that the release has no advantage for Israel other than supposedly aiding peace talks, and "strengthens and encourages terrorism in the future."
