In the letters for August 5 in the Jerusalem Post
, somebody says:
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his government should be ashamed and condemned for the reckless decision to release murderers to appease US and Arab interests and coax Israel’s antagonists to talk peace.
Unless they find a way to cancel this abomination and blight upon Israel’s conscience, many more innocent Israelis will face death at the hands of terrorists as our enemies become emboldened to continue their violent opposition to any Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel.
And, they should definitely be condemned, that's a given. Evelyn Gordon wrote
how Netanyahu already embraced cowardice by acting as though Israel is doomed without a peace deal:
...in truth, it has been inevitable for years – at least since October 20, 2010, which is when I first heard Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu say that Israel couldn’t “survive in the long run without a political settlement.” For once a prime minister convinces himself that the country’s very survival depends on an Israeli-Palestinian agreement, the inexorable consequence is that almost no concession is too high to pay for a deal, or even for the faintest chance of one. He’ll obviously try to get the best deal he can. But ultimately, he’ll feel justified in crawling to any Palestinian demand, even one as wildly unpopular as the prisoner release, to save Israel from the doom he foresees.
And only disgraceful people like himself. If his career goes down in shambles, he'll be asking for it.
