Skip to comments.MK Danon: Shin Bet Giving Terrorists 'Gifts'
Posted on 05/14/2012 11:54:15 AM PDT by Eleutheria5
MK Danny Danon (Likud) on Monday slammed a deal signed Monday between Israel's Shin Bet and hunger-striking Arab security prisoners being held on suspicion of terrorism.
"This deal is a serious mistake," Danon said. "Rather than making things harder on the terrorists, they give them gifts."
"The situation of security prisoners must be clear: no family visits, no special benefits, and key prisoners must be confined seperately," he added.
"We would not allow a Hizbullah prisoner visits, and there is no reason to give Hamas prisoners visits," he said. "Both deny the existence of Israel."
Danon told Arutz Sheva he plans to demand an urgent hearing by the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee to debate the details of the agreement, and hopefully prevent its implementation.
Earlier on Monday, it was announced that the ring-leaders behind the mass hunger strike of Israel's prisoners had signed a pledge to eschew terror activity in exchange for improved conditions.
After they announced the signing of the deal, the hunger strike ended.
Shin Bet said that the agreement was made possible following the commitment given by the commanders of organizations outside the prison, to prevent terrorism, and once approved, security prisoners signed the letter.

Sure. We’ll prevent terrorism. Honest injun. Now gimme a bagel, here hold my bomb belt.
I was wondering what kind of “concessions” the inmates
Does Shin Bet really think there won’t be an intifada
when Israel bombs Iran?
Not sure they made the right choice this time.
I hope you know this means you’ve renegged on your written commitment to prevent terrorism. Tell that to those 72 virgins and see if they’re still so into you.
