MK: Reject Release of Israeli Terrorists with Contempt


Tourism Minister Uzi Landau said, Friday, that if the cabinet is presented a deal which includes the release of Israeli terrorists convicted of murder, it will shock the coalition. The Palestinian Authority has demanded the release of Israelis among other security prisoners.

Interviewed by Kol Yisrael government radio, the Likud Beytenu lawmaker said Israel must reject the idea of such a deal with contempt and preserve its national dignity so as to prevent pressure and blackmail attempts in the future.
