UPDATE, Aug. 14, 2013, 6 am

The Mayor of Ramallah was among those celebrating and partying overnight with these cold blooded murderers, and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas (below, center) hugged them and called them my brothers” – the Western media still insist on calling Abbas a “moderate”.

The PA has announced it will pay the released prisoners a stipend of $2,000 a month.

Tonight, under U.S. and international pressure, Israel released the first batch of 26 of the 104 terrorists which I referred to in recent dispatches.

Since most international media are not explaining who these people are (and all were duly convicted by courts that are respected the world over), here are details about just a few of them:

* Abu-Musa Salam Ali Atia of Fatah, who murdered Holocaust survivor Isaac Rotenberg in the town of Petah Tikvah near Tel Aviv in 1994. He was hacked to death using an axe in broad daylight.

Rotenberg was one of the last survivors of the Sobibor extermination camp and was one of those involved in the famous escape from Sobibor.

* Ra’ai Ibrahim Salam Ali of Fatah who was jailed in 1994 for the murder of 79-year-old Morris Eisenstatt. Eisenstatt was also killed by axe blows to the head while he sat on a public bench reading a book in the Tel Aviv suburb of Kfar Saba.

* Salah Ibrahim Ahmad Mugdad, of Fatah, was imprisoned in 1993 for killing 72-year-old grandfather Israel Tenenbaum by beating him on the head with a steel rod.

* Two of the prisoners, Abu Satta Ahmad Sa’id Aladdin and Abu Sita Talab Mahmad Ayman, were imprisoned in 1994 for the murder of David Dadi and Haim Weizman. They killed Dadi and Weizman as they slept in Weizman’s apartment, and then cut off their ears as trophies.

* Abdel Aal Sa’id Ouda Yusef was imprisoned in 1994 for the murder of Ian Sean Feinberg and the murder of Sami Ramadan.

Feinberg, a 30-year-old father of three, was a tireless advocate for Palestinian economic development, and was killed in his office as he helped plan a job creation scheme for Palestinians.

* Sualha Fazah Ahmed Husseini and Sualha Bad Almajed Mahmed Mahmed, of Fatah, were imprisoned for a stabbing attack on a crowded bus in Ramat Gan (next to Tel Aviv) in 1990. The two randomly and viciously stabbed passengers, killing 24-year-old Baruch Heizler and badly wounded three young women.

* Sha’at Azat Shaban Ata was imprisoned in 1993 for helping to orchestrate the murder of 51-year-old Simcha Levi, a woman who made her living driving Palestinians to work.

* Maslah Abdullah Salama Salma, of Hamas, was imprisoned in 1993 for the brutal murder of Petah Tikvah convenience store owner Reuven David. Abdallah, together with an accomplice, entered David’s convenience store on May 20, 1991, bound David’s arms and legs and beat him to death.

* Na’anish Na’if Abdal Jafer Samir, imprisoned in 1989 for the murder of Binyamin Meisner.

* Arsheed A’Hameed Yusef Yusef, imprisoned in 1993 for the murder of Nadal Rabu Ja’ab, Adnan Ajad Dib, Mufid Cana’an, Tawafiq Jaradat and Ibrahim Sa’id Ziwad.

And the list goes on and on.

UPDATE 2, Aug. 14, 2013, 10 am

When it comes to 25 terrorists, this is how Egypt deals with them -- although this has not been reported at all in the Western media...

Egyptian army kills 25 "terrorists" in Sinai
Asharq Al-Awsat


Cairo, Asharq Al-Awsat — Egyptian military aircraft attacked jihadist targets in Sinai on Saturday evening, 24 hours after four members of the Ansar Bayt Al-Maqdis group were killed in a controversial air attack.

The Egyptian army said it estimated the number of casualties among the Islamist extremists in the latest attack to be at around 25 killed and injured.

Colonel Ahmad Mohamed Ali, official spokesman of the army, said in a statement on Facebook that the army carried out an attack at 9:00 pm on Saturday evening after spotting a terrorist group near the village of Touma in northern Sinai, close to the border with Gaza.

Ali said the attack, carried out by the army’s Apache attack helicopters, was a result of what he called “plans by the terrorist group to carry out criminal acts against members of the armed forces, the police, and the people of Sinai.”

He said the attack resulted in 25 “terrorists” being killed or injured, and the destruction of an arms and ammunition depot belonging to the terror group.

Ali added that the terrorist group that was attacked was involved in recent attacks on Egyptian army personnel in the Sinai.
