Israelis WAY Too Nice
The terrorist who murdered two Israeli's in Negohot was recently released from an Israeli jail after serving 14 months.

Hamdan, a resident of a Hebron-area village, was arrested on June 26, 2002, and accused of intending to carry out a suicide bomb attack on behalf of Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat's Fatah faction. He was tried and convicted. After serving his sentence he was released from Israeli prison on July 28 of this year.

If Israel had thrown away the key, all three would still be alive. Or if Israel had executed him, he would have gotten his wish, and his two victims would still be alive. Furthermore, this is a trend. The terrorists behind this attack that killed 15 were also released from jail after just two months.

I've noticed that the AP has sanitized this. They omit why he was in jail.

He had been released two months ago from an Israeli jail after serving a 14-month sentence, his relatives said. They would not say why he was in jail.

They asked his relatives. I guess that is when a good reporter stops digging. Because they couldn't ask Israeli officials. It's much better to rely on terrorist's statements when you are reporting the news. My lord.
