Remember the hunger-striking terrorist from Islamic Jihad, who was released from jail?
Well, I don’t know what happened since then, but I do know that he was supposed to be re-jailed for some reason, and tried to escape into the tachana merkazit (central bus station) in Be’er Sheva. Suddenly, there was a security lockdown. Everyone was confused and worried. Huh? What happened?
Oh, nothing happened . . . it’s just that there’s a dangerous fugitive on the loose, and he’s run in here.
Luckily, they found the terrorist after only a few minutes, and all was well. Thank G-d, no harm was caused.
This story didn’t make the news; I’ve checked. You know how *I* know it happened?
Because this morning, when Yitzchak was on his way to work, he happened to pass through the tachana merkazit in Be’er Sheva at the time this incident happened. I assume he was scared for himself. But instead, he channeled it into being scared for me.
Lesson: Don’t free terrorists, of any sort, and for any reason, ever.
On a different note, I hope that Uri Ariel succeeds in convincing the government to implement his suggestion. If there are harsh enough consequences, terror will stop. You murdered Jews on this road? No more Arabs can travel it anymore. Your son murdered Jews? All of you, *out*!
