Prison Official Reveals Fear Drives Jailed Terrorist Perks

Retired Warden Shlomo Toizer, former head of the Israeli Prison Service (Shabas) general headquarters, revealed on Friday that jailed terrorists are treated to relatively luxurious prison conditions simply because Shabas fears prison riots. He told Galei Yisrael radio that the perks include TVs, libraries and no overcrowding - out of fear of riots.
