On the eve of Tisha b'Av, Israel has released 339 Palestinian prisoners

What, are they CRAZY?!

Bassam Abu Sharif, an adviser to PA Chairman Yasser Arafat, called the planned release a "joke," which he said proves "Sharon is not serious about implementing the road map."

I can't bear this. Read the rest at JPost.

In June 1996, Yehudit Dasberg's daughter and son-in-law Efrat and Yaron Ungar were murdered by terrorists in a drive-by shooting, and Yehudit and her husband have been raising her two orphaned grandchildren - now 8 and 9 years old - ever since.

Mrs. Dasberg met the Prime Minister in the Knesset corridors today, and asked, "Why are you releasing so many terrorists, that so many IDF soldiers and GSS agents worked so hard to apprehend?"

Mr. Sharon responded that the decision was the "correct" one, and that the government had resolved not to release terrorists with blood on their hands.

Mrs. Dasberg then said to him, "The ones you're letting go tried to murder - but missed."
