Terror Victims' Org to Launch Death Sentence Campaign
Its conclusions have not yet been made public because the committee met after the Shalit abduction and did not want to influence activity that might have already begun to free him.
The group also announced plans for a new campaign calling for a return to the spirit of Yoni Netanyahu, brother of the prime minister. Yoni was commander of the Sayeret Matkal elite IDF commando unit and was killed in the raid that freed the hostages of an Air France flight forced to land in Entebbe, Uganda, in 1976. At the time, Israel refused the demands of the terrorists to free prisoners in exchange for the hostages.
"We will not let Bibi [Netanyahu] and Barak continue to hide from the public the principles set by the Shamgar Committee even if they are contrary to the way they chose to act. Otherwise we will turn to the High Court," warned Almagor chairman Meir Indor.
Another of Almagor's planned campaigns will demand a death sentence for terrorists.
The members of the committee are to meet next week with the officials who negotiated Glad Shalit's release. They will question the negotiating team, which was led by David Meidan, and receive their recommendations and conclusions.
