On August 13, Israel is expected to release the first group out of 104 Arabs, many of whom are convicted of first degree murder, as a gesture to the PLO and the Palestinian Authority, this as a unilateral pre-condition to restart peace negotiations.

None of the killers has expressed regret or remorse.

The convicts expect to be received with a hero’s welcome by the Palestinian Authority, whimsically described as Israel's  “partner to peace negotiations”.

On Sunday night, August 11, US House Majority Leader, Rep. Eric Cantor, arrives in Israel as the head of a delegation of Republican members of Congress.

Rep. Cantor’s delegation will meet with Israel President Shimon Peres and with the Israel Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu on Monday, August 12 .

This is the time for US Citizens to ask Rep. Cantor’s congressional delegation to ask Peres and Netanyahu if any of the 104 felons scheduled for release were convicted in the murder or attempted murder of a US citizen.

Rep. Cantor and the visiting Republican congressional delegation can be reached at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, where they can be contacted before they meet with Peres and Netanyahu.

Al-Aksa terrorist leader on Wultz's murder: Wultz was the "best target combination we can dream of - American and Zionist."
Perhaps Rep. Cantor’s delegation could ask Peres and Netanyahu  to reconsider the release of unrepentant  terrorists, an act that can create a precedent for all terrorists, who understand that you can conduct acts of murder and eventually be released to an entity that will shower praise and honor on each and every killer.

Congressman Eric Cantor has felt the agony and pain of terror personally.

His cousin, a 16 year old boy named Daniel Cantor Wultz, was killed by a bomb placed by an Arab terrorist at a Tel Aviv Felafal stand in April, 2006.

Daniel’s leg was blown to bits.  After writhing in pain for a few days at Icholov Hospital in Tel Aviv, Daniel died of his wounds.

Abu Nasser, a senior leader of the Fatah’s "Al Aqsa Martyrs" Brigades, which reports directly to Mahmoud Abbas, head of the Palestinian Authority, told  the media at the time said that Wultz was the "best target combination we can dream of - American and Zionist."
