If the news reports are to be believed, the prisoner-exchange between Israel and Hizbollah is likely to be carried out within a few days. To secure the release of two Israeli reserve soldiers, Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser, kidnapped on Israeli soil by Hizbollah terrorists, Israel will release 4 Lebanese terrorists – including Samir Kuntar – and dozens of Palestinians. All this, despite the fact that according to Israeli Intelligence reports, the two Israeli reservists are almost certainly dead. Hizbollah has refused to give any information proving they are alive. It would not be the first time Israel has agreed to a prisoner exchange with Hizbollah, only to discover, too late, that in return for live terrorists, we were receiving coffins.
Over the past years, Israel has released even terrorists "with blood on their hands", in various prisoner exchange deals, but has always refused to release Kuntar – and with good reason. This animal, this vile Son of Satan, has no right to live, let alone walk free. In case anyone has forgotten, let me remind you who – no, what – Samir Kuntar is. On April 22, 1979, the eve of Shabbat (a favourite time for those who love to murder Jews), this piece of filth, together with 3 other members of the Palestine Liberation Front, sailed from Lebanon and landed on the coast of Nahariya. They murdered a policeman who spotted them and then broke into the apartment of the Haran family, where they took hostage the father, Danny and his four-year-old daughter, Einat. Danny’s wife, Smadar, hid in the apartment’s crawl-space, together with the young couple’s second daughter, two-year-old Yael.
The terrorists took Danny and little Einat down to the beach. There, the Spawn of Satan Kuntar, shot Danny in the back and then drowned him, to make sure he was dead. He did this before the terrified eyes of his four-year-old daughter, for the sadistic purpose of ensuring that this would be the last sight the toddler would ever see, before dragging the child over to the rocks as she whimpered and begged him not to hurt her. There, he smashed the little girl’s head on a rock with his rifle butt. Can you imagine anything so horrific? To smash a rifle butt, over and over again, into a little girl’s skull! To smash her head on the rocks! This is the "hero" Hizbollah wants freed! This scumbag who has never once expressed regret for his actions, who has even boasted of them in a television interview which Israeli authorities, for some incomprehensible reason, allowed him to give, while in prison!!!
And what of Smadar and her younger daughter, her baby, two-year-old Yael? Were you thinking that at least they were safe? Think again. In her desperate fear lest the gang of murderers hear the child’s whimpering and discover their hiding place, Smadar had covered Yael’s mouth with her hand. The toddler suffocated. Smadar lost her entire family that night. Samir Kuntar was responsible for that. And this is the piece of human excrement that our government is going to release in exchange for – what? Corpses?
Pictures speak louder than words, so I will leave you with a picture of Danny, Einat and Yael Haran, taken just a week before their lives were so brutally ended by an animal who doesn’t deserve to live, much less walk free on G-d’s good earth.
