1. Tirawi is a terrorist according to our Foreign Ministry
Ilan ,   Ariel   (10.21.07)
Who knows terror like Tirawi?
2. "some of them released" yeh we should feel "a lot safer"...
Israel   (10.21.07)
3. What if Shin Bet was unaware of the attack
Nora ,   Tel Aviv   (10.21.07)
Abbas released the Fatah attackers. Nuuuu.....what do you think about Abbas? Even false teeth he doesn`t have to bite. Even Fatah is not obeying him. Who does he really represent? In other words, why talk to him?
4. Terrorists from Fatah ....
Terry ,   Eilat, Israel   (10.21.07)
Shows you how much support Abbas has from his own party. So an agreement with Abbas really means something, right? And some were released - now, that's really funny. Shows how serious they are about fighting terrorism. So much for "moderates" -
5. the worst possible move fatah could make
aaron ,   ra'anana   (10.21.07)
why would they try and eliminate their friend, paymaster, benefactor, ally and co-conspirator??? it doesn't add up.
6. #4 It show you what Abbas,the head of this Fatah party,
Joseph P. ,   Jerusalem   (10.21.07)
is all about. Abbas is nothing but a hypocrite who can fool only idiots like Olmert and Livni. Will Olmert's brains every grasp his foolish flattery to a well-known terrorist?
7. what's wrong with you? PA to jail administrative detainees?!
observer   (10.21.07)
Sami Hashlamoun was arrested in Hebron 16 months ago. His wife Nora was arrested about a year ago. Both are being held without trial, without an indictment, without a chance to defend themselves. They left six administrative orphans. Three kids go to see their mother in Hasharon Prison and the other three see their father in Ketziot Prison.
8. it's obvious
observer   (10.21.07)
to bypass another Israel's excuse, the PA detained them till the preparatory meeting to peace conference between Olmert and Abbas took place. Then, it has not been logic to continue jailing them without a true charge. Knowing that the motive behind Israel accusation was to evade peace talk, what do you expect?
9. But these are our peace partners?
Shaul   (10.21.07)
Aren't they? Gee, I think Olmert should go back there again and again...I mean, doesn't he trust them? In fact, why take Shin Bet at all - go on Olmert - you want us to make peace with them...we'll be right BEHIND you...well...maybe not RIGHT behind you...
10. i do not believe !!!!
albert ,   jerusalem   (10.21.07)
they try to make olmert popular ...but do not worry olmert will finish in jail with hirschon and all their friends...of kadima...
11. No blood on their Hands? Release Them!
Batya ,   Ofakim   (10.21.07)
Just like you release all the others with "no blood on their hands".
12. Olmert - the coward
JJ ,   Jerusalem   (10.21.07)
As the Annapolis conference approches, Olmert is finding excuses or making up stories, to call it off
13. Olmert's to blame
M.C.   (10.21.07)
and getting it from those terrorists he foolishly released.
14. What goes around comes around...
the medical coup de etat on Ariel Sharon is coming back to haunt Mr. Olmert, perhaps, if he was involved.
15. Midda Keneged Mida
Jules ,   Jerusalem   (10.21.07)
What is Olmert complaining about, he also releases terrorists, so why shouldn't the PA
16. Olmrert could have won a DARWIN AWARD
Anon ,   Anon, Israel   (10.21.07)
rachel corrie got one. Why not Ehud?
17. It's not so serious ....
Terry ,   Eilat, Israel   (10.21.07)
They're "moderate" terrorists. Olmert would only be "moderately" dead. So why the complaints?
18. he should have been expecting it sooner or later
LOL. If you arent "negotiating" with all, or the majority of the people, than you nave nothing
19. I tell you, man, that the philosohy of 'pre-emption'........
Cameron ,   USA   (10.21.07)
seems more & more to be a guiding axiom for dealing with life, literally. Putting the zap on others before they can put the zap on you. The release of these 3 Palis reeks of political pandering in the name of building 'relationships'.
20. Israel vs Terrorist infested place
Brod ,   USA   (10.21.07)
Olmert should never travel to such dangerous terrorist-infested place. It should be the losers that should be begging for mercy not the other way round. It is time the Israeli government understands that peace does not exist in the heart, mind and soul of Islamist-Jihadists. The peace crap of the Islamist-Jihadists as engineered by the Wahhabhists is the destruction of Israel. Hence, Israel should not waste its time on the cesspool of society. And Israel should not cow to Wahhabhist and Antisemite engineered external pressures and manipulations Instead it should focus on defending and developing its liberated biblical and historic homeland of Judea and Samaria, and defending itself against Iran's nuke threat.
21. We view the assassination attempt as extremely severe
oh really ?
22. it's getting worse than ever
RobertK ,   Jerusalem   (10.21.07)
"Right-wing politicians said that "the moderate leader" Abbas revealed his true colors." This is a RIGHT-WING position?--that it's Ok to free attempted assassins of the prime minister? This is OK with people who are not right-wing? People! Something's got to give!
23. This is another big, big, big as pig lie by Israel
Khalil Abo Mohammad ,   Ein Karem, Al Quds   (10.21.07)
14:19 Fayad: Olmert was never seriously threatened by plot to attack his convoy (AP) Published: 10.21.07, 14:00 / Israel News Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad on Sunday addressed the report that Fatah gunmen attempted to assassinate Prime Minister Ehud Olmert during his visit to Jericho, saying that no evidence was found against the suspects and therefore they were released after being questions. "We are studying the incident and plan to do our best in order to restore the order in the region. We will draw all the lessons from the incident," Fayyad said at the start of a meeting with Knesset Speaker Dalia Itzik in Jerusalem. (Neta Sela)
24. Hum... Let me get this right
Joe ,   Ohio, USA   (10.21.07)
"Fayyad: We'll draw all the possible lessons from the incident " Does this mean that they'll get him next time?
25. Stinks of fabrication...more Olmert spin
freejay ,   Israel   (10.21.07)
But If it was true, then its a shame they missed.....they would of done Israel a big favour!
26. They're "moderate" terrorists.Olmert would only be "moderate
EXCELLENT !!!!!!!!!
27. They tried to do a Benazir Bhutto on Ehud Olmerde
Alan ,   SA   (10.21.07)
zionist forever   (10.21.07)
Now we have to put up with Olmert the man who acts like a dictaitor who will sell the whole country if the terrorists ask for it provided the profits end up in his private bank acounts.
29. We Will Draw All Possible Lessons
Bill Foonman ,   Jacksonville, USA   (10.21.07)
Most children learn from their mistakes the first time they make them. To nobody's surprise, the Palestinians continue relentlessly in their quest to never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.
Franklin ,   France   (10.21.07)
The " Terrorists " was released because the "Plot" was a mascarade were the Fatah and Abbas took the position of collaborating and even protect Israel..... " Look what we are able to do for you in the future....and principaly in the streets of the vicinity of the Knesset. "
