'Move meant to strengthen Abbas' [The head of the State of Palestine, Mahmoud Abbas said that the release of prisoners, especially those who were arrested before the signing of the Oslo
agreement, will enhance the chances of achieving peace.]
The committee's decision was informed by Shin Bet data and recommendations. According to a political source, several of the names were changed during the meeting. "The move was meant to strengthen Mahmoud Abbas," he added.
But it will weaken Israel - not only at the diplomatic negotiating table but in a moral sense - and strengthen the concept of Palestinianism that is predicated on terror as per the Covenenat which has never been fully and unequivocally withdrawn:
Article 9: Armed struggle is the only way to liberate Palestine. This it is the overall strategy, not merely a tactical phase. The Palestinian Arab people assert their absolute determination and firm resolution to continue their armed struggle and to work for an armed popular revolution for the liberation of their country and their return to it . They also assert their right to normal life in Palestine and to exercise their right to self-determination and sovereignty over it.
Statement on the Release of Prisoners
The list includes 14 prisoners who will be transferred to Gaza and 12 from Judea and Samaria. Eight prisoners on the list were due to be released in the next three years and two in the next six months. The prisoner release will be carried out at least 48 hours after the list will have been published. It was emphasized in the aforesaid discussion that that if any of the released prisoners return to hostile activity against the State of Israel, they will be returned to continue serving their sentences.
No, the condition should be that the release process halts. And that never ever again will the US pressure Israel to engage in this for of diplomacy.
