Interior Minister Gid'on Sa'ar has ordered the removal of signs in the Israeli-Arab town of Baka Al-Gharbiya welcoming the release of Israeli security prisoners, according to a Monday report by Israel Defense Forces Radio. The signs said, "Today you and tomorrow the rest of all the prisoners."
The demand to remove the signs was made by the family of Moshe Tamam, who was murdered 30 years ago by four Israeli Arabs. Noting that the signs call the murderers heros, Moshe's brother Oren said, "That they want to release them is like a knife in the heart. These signs, it's really twisting the knife."
