The Israeli version of Dr. Strangelove...

Amir deserves the same punishment as Eichmann. May his name forever be forgotten.
4. Hope he gets a beating from the other inmates

Patriotic Israeli ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (07.04.12)
such as yourself committed to the concepts of peace, humanity, and non-violence.
6. Well ....

Arab security prisoners, who are responsible for the deaths of tens of dozens of Jews, have greater rights than Yigal Amir. In all fairness, I admit that I have never exactly viewed Itzhak Rabin as a hero -- he was a lying, thieving, manic depressive Jew -- so perhaps my view is jaundiced. I'm still at the stage of wondering just how much of Eretz Israel Rabin would have given away, had he the chance. 'nuff said.
7. why? he should stay there forever.

8. #4 at least
At least he isn't a free man, living in luxury, like Leftist hero Samir Kuntar.
9. #6 Sarah, he was a lot tougher a negotiator than Olmert ...

Barak, and dare I say Sharon? The jury is still out on Netanyahu. But one thing is for sure about Rabin, the "ersatz" were never going to see the light of day in Jerusalem. At the time his position was considered very controversial, but with time we've sadly been conditioned to accept all this as normal with no other choice than to go along with it for the sake of "peace".
10. #4 LOL you obviously dont know me
Haim ,   TA   (07.04.12)
Peace loving, humanity non violence? Nah i would gladly smack the extreme right religious around the head come the civil war.
11. long overdue

No matter if you think Amir is a hero or scum the way he has been treated out of political vengeance is wrong. Mordachai Vanunu didn't spend as long as Amir did in solitary and he knew some of the countries greatest secrets. Yigal Amir murdered one man and he has been treated worse than any other murderer,. Every six months a committee discussed releasing him from solitary and each time the politicians intervened and dreamed up an excuse why he should stay in solitary Politicians on both the right and left have all said in the past they are determined that Amir never leaves prison alive so how could he ever expect fair treatment? I am just amazed he has been allowed out of solitary now with there being a political vendetta against him.
12. #6 amir brothers
joemoer ,   israel   (07.04.12)
i personaly would be very happy if i never had to hear one of these low life scumbags names again ... for sarah..i dont understand your didnt view rabin as a hero therefore his murder was ok ?? or because he was giving away too much of eretz israel ...i do agree with you about arab security fact any prisoners in jails in israel..they should have to work for any rights...jail should not be a holiday camp paid for by us...

hullo genius...this slumbags brother upon leaving jail said "I am proud of what I did. I have no regrets." does that sound like someone who did not do it or help ...

Who a person killed is also important. Maybe it should not be so theoretically, but it is so realistically.
15. # 11 To say Yigal Amir is an insult to scum
Haim ,   TA   (07.05.12)
