Terror victims: Return murderer of 7 Israelis to jail

The Almagor umbrella organization of terror-victim groups has called on the Israeli government to use all its power to return Ahmed Daqamseh to prison in Jordan, following his release after 20 years for the shooting deaths of seven school girls from Beit Shemesh at the Island of Peace site on the Jordanian border.

Calling the release "spitting in the face of the bereaved families," Almagor said the government  "must demand that the Jordanian king keep the promise of his father, King Hussein, who came to personally apologize to the families of the [girls who were] killed and promised that the killer would be punished to the fullest extent of the law." Almagor leader Meir Indor said, "The Jordanians have done everything to prove for years that the visit of the Jordanian king in families killed was only for the media."
