MK Elkin: Time Has Come to Change the Rules of the Game


MK Ze’ev Elkin (Likud) applauded Tuesday night’s arrest of 51 terrorists released in exchange for the safe Return of Gilad Shalit.

“I applaud the Prime Minister and the security forces for adopting our suggestion and arresting the terrorists who were released in exchange for Gilad Shalit. The time has come to change the rules of the game that Hamas keeps trying to dictate to us. From now, any terror organization will know that when it plans to kidnap Israelis, such acts will only lead to the arrest of hundreds of terrorists… We will continue to act towards furthering the proposed law which would render any terrorist released be released on probation; so that the risk of being returned to an Israeli prison be a constant reminder to him.”
