    Jordan did exactly what it had to do with its terrorists.
    Israel should do the same: introduce the death penalty for terrorists with blood on their hands.
    They are not better than Eichmann ISHV, and he got the death penalty, so why not they?

    Now Israel keeps them in jail till they must release a thousand of them in exchange for one lone kidnapped israeli soldier.
    What country in the whole world does disproportionate exchanges like that???
    Why give them weapons to blackmail Israel?
