Guardian publishes letters arguing Shalit’s release (in exchange for 1027 terrorists) is unfair to Hamas
“…Here’s a partial list of the 1027 Palestinian prisoners being released in the deal for Shalit.
Abdel Hadi Ghanem, an Islamic Jihad terrorist responsible for the 1989 terror attack on Egged bus 405, in which 16 Israelis were killed.
Fahad Schludi, a terror operative who took part in the 1993 abduction and murder of IDF soldier Yaron Chen.
Bassam Abu Sneina and Riyad Asila, who are serving a life sentence for the 1998 murder of yeshiva student Haim Kerman.
Nael al-Barghouthi, the longest-serving Palestinian prisoner, who was sentenced to life in prison in 1978, for murdering an Israeli security officer.
Yehiya As-Sinwar, who was one of the founders of Hamas’ security forces in Gaza and was involved in the abduction and murder of IDF soldier Nachshon Wachsman. He is also the brother of one of the terrorists involved in Gilad Shalit’s kidnapping.
Jihad Yarmur, who was convicted of Nachshon Wachsman’s murder.
Ahmed Najar, former head of the Silwad terror cell, which killed 3 Israelis in six shooting attacks during the al-Aqsa Intifada.
Mohammed Hamada, who was convicted of planning a rocket attack on Teddy Stadium in Jerusalem.
Ruhi Musteha, a senior operative with Hamas’ military wing.
Husam Badran, the former head of Hamas’ military wing in the West Bank, who orchestrated the deadly terror attacks at the Tel Aviv Dolphinarium in 2001, at the Park Hotel in Netanya in 2002 (which killed 30) and at the Sbarro restaurant in Jerusalem in 2001 (which killed 15).
Muhammad Duglas, who was implicated in the Sbarro attack, and is serving 15 consecutive life sentences for the murder of 19 Israelis.
So, even the partial list of Palestinian terrorists being released to gain the release of Gilad Shalit are responsible for the murder of 86 Israelis – a fact which doesn’t in the least concern the three contributors provided a platform by the Guardian.”
