Indor Opposes Elkin's 'Gradual Weaning' Idea
Terror victims' spokesman Meir Indor does not like the law suggested by MK Zev Elkin (Likud), which would limit the number of terrorists released in future exchanges like the Shalit deal to 80-90 percent of the number released in the Shalit deal.
Elkin, who feels the country's leadership is too weak to implement tougher measures, wants the number of terrorists released to shrink gradually by 10-20 percent every time a deal is struck.
Indor says there is no reason to believe that this legislation will hold up to public pressure any more than legislation limiting terrorist releases more drastically.
Israeli leaders are grappling with the aftermath of the Shalit deal, in which Israel agreed to release over 1,000 terrorists, including mass murderers and sadistic killers, in exchange for a captive soldier. Many feel Israeli society has lost much of its staying power in the face of terrorists and that governments succumb to pressure from the Israeli press, which Caroline Glick has called "demented."
