It's no wonder Palestinian terrorists continue to push for undeserved concessions at the expense of innocent civilians. Why shouldn't they? Under Olmert's leadership, Israel continues to grovel at terrorists' feet for the slightest nod of recognition.
JERUSALEM — Israel's Cabinet on Sunday approved the release of some 200 Palestinian prisoners as a goodwill gesture to the Palestinian government of moderate President Mahmoud Abbas.
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's Cabinet passed the proposal 16-4. Earlier this month, Olmert told Abbas he would free some of the 9,000 Palestinians held by Israel to help energize peace talks.
