Terrorism, No More
by Ron Agam
Witnessing the heart-wrenching situation where murderers of children, women and innocent victims were released in exchange of an Israeli soldier was a very difficult moment.
Israel is a country were the death penalty has been administrated only once, and that was for Adolf Eichmann, since then even the worst murderers guilty of abominable acts of terror were given life sentences often reduced to an amnesty preceding exchanges with the enemy. This amnesty is inconceivable to the families of the victims and to the public in general, and it must be stopped.
It is time for the Knesset to again discuss the issue of terrorism and work to profoundly change the rules and consequences of these actions. As a democracy, it is time to protect the citizens of Israel and to take action so that these murderers never see the daylight of freedom, again.
The dynamic of Peace with staunch enemies of the country will not improve unless the price to be paid for committing atrocities is not raised to the death penalty.
Clearly our enemies must know that Israel will not tolerate compromise any more when Jewish blood is concerned.
It is time to change the laws and send a clear message, that Israel will not tolerate any more atrocities against its people and that the price for such actions will be the death sentence.
Israel is surrounded by enemies whose barbarism is a way of life , it is imperative that these terrorists realize that a modern a vibrant society like the Jewish state can and will be merciless with anyone attempting to kill or murder any of its citizens.
