The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

A Pardon is a Pardon

The terrorists responsible for the attempted poisoning of an Israeli restaurant this past week were previously pardoned by Israel, according to WND:

The terrorist cell that planned to poison an Israeli restaurant this month was led by jihadists who were recently granted amnesty by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, WND has learned.

The pardoned terrorists, members of Fatah's Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, were directly involved in orchestrating the foiled attack, according to defense sources. They were granted amnesty in October as a stated Israeli gesture to help bolster Palestinian Authority President and Fatah Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

The terrorists were given amnesty on condition they disarm, refrain from attacks and spend three months in PA detention facilities and another three months confined to Nablus, the northern West Bank city in which they reside.

Yet more proof that all of the "caring" and "compassion" in the world will never solve the terrorism problem.

I need to get back into research mode to locate a story I heard about two years ago...

There was an interview with an author who visited an Israeli prison. He said Israel had a policy was being extremely friendly and humane to muslim prisoners in the hope that their kindness would change jihadic views. One prisoner was questioned about his treatment. The prisoner was very positive, even stating that he now viewed some of the Israeli guards as friends. When the interviewer ask if he would ever again try to harm innocent Israelis, his response was that he would. He would try to kill the same guards who he viewed as friends. When asked why, after the kindness they had shown him, the prisoners said, "Because Allah commands it."

How is it possible to negotiate or rehabilitate that mentality?
