Murdered Family's Relative Calls for Death Penalty

A relative of the family massacred by terrorists called on Wednesday for the death penalty. Elihai Ben Yishai is the brother of Ruth Fogel, who was stabbed to death by terrorists in Itamar along with her husband and three of their children including a baby. The terrorists broke into their house at night and attacked them while they slept. He came out against the planned release of terrorists as part of the ongoing negotiations between the Palestinian Authority and Israel. "If we kill these bastards in the first place," Ben Yishai stated, then there wouldn't be a moral dilemma about releasing them now, he argued. He expressed anger that the killers of his sister, brother-in-law and their children would one day be released as part of a negotiation.
