The terrorist that murdered Yeshayahu Deutsch, a prominent farmer in Kfar Yam, Gush Katif, will be released this week in accordance with the government's decision to set free 104 terrorist murderers, as a “gesture” to the Palestinian Authority (PA).

In 1993, Yeshayahu was called into his greenhouse by his workers, where they carried out the attack and killed him.

Yeshayahu’s brother, Moshe Deutsch, spoke during an interview with Arutz , saying “that villainous terrorist, who is now 41 years old, gets a new life, while Shaya’s life was destroyed at age 39 This wound has remained open for many years,” said Deutsch. “Time has not healed it. Shaya was an outstanding person. Even now we are still using innovations he developed in agriculture.”

Moshe Deutsch said that no state official has bothered to notify them of the release. “Had it not been for the Almagor anti-terror organization, we wouldn’t have known at all that they were releasing him before he was set free. Almagor head Meir Indor spoke with us; they call it the first throb of pain, but for us it is not a throb of pain, because we are still left with the loss," he said.

The Deutsch family was previously involved in a struggle with the government, when the state decided to demolish their Jewish-owned farm in the Judean hills.
