Government asking court to deny petition by families of terror victims is contempt for them

The Israeli government has committed a very grave offense in the legal system:
The government on Wednesday asked the High Court of Justice to reject a petition filed by the families of terror victims against the slated release of Palestinian prisoner, as part of renewed peace talks with the Palestinians.

Israel has agreed to release 104 security prisoners who were jailed prior to the 1993 Oslo Accords, as a goodwill gesture to the Palestinian Authority. The prisoners, some of whom are considered "heavyweight terrorists," will be released in four groups, according to the progress made in the negotiations. The first group is slated to be released next week.

The petition, drafted by Attorney Naftali Wertzberger for the Almagor Terror Victims Association, was filed against the state, Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein the government's legal counsel and the Justice Ministry's Amnesties and Pardons Department, demanding to know why they chose not to prevent the release of terrorists in question.
Asking the court to reject the petition is an act of hostility against the victims of terrorism as much as releasing the murderers with blood on their hands. It could jeopardize the Likud's electoral chances too. It would be equally offensive if the US government asked the Supreme Court to reject a petition by 9-11 Families against the release of jihadists serving time in American prisons.
