Here's a better bill
being sponsored in the Knesset, to ensure justice against jihadists:
The Knesset on Monday approved a bill seeking to prevent leniency for convicted terrorists. Thirty-five MKs voted in favor of the legislation proposal, which seeks to toughen the circumstances under which terrorists would be eligible for parole, while 15 MKs voted against it.
The bill, introduced by MKs Ayelet Shaked (Habayit Hayehudi) and David Tzur (Hatnuah), states that the Israel Prison Service Parole Board would be unable to discuss the early release of terrorists, especially those whose cases entailed aggravating circumstances, unless they had already served at least 15 years of their sentence.
The Parole Board would also be barred from commuting life sentences imposed on terrorists, especially those serving consecutive sentences, for a period of under 40 years.
The bill further bars the government from releasing terrorists as part of what it called the management of Israel's foreign relations or security matters, as detailed in Basic Law: The Government.
The legislation proposal does not, however, infringe on the president's pardoning authority.
Good that we've got a better, if not perfect, president incumbent now. But a lot still needs to be for ensuring that jihadists will not find the easy ways out they used to.
