The tiny Jewish state released over fifty murderers to advance the "peace process"? What peace process? How does releasing an army of murderers to cheers and a heroes welcome by the jihadist PA advance peace? It surely advances the jihad against the Jews.
I understand the Jewish national anthem, "Hatikvah," means hope, but this is seriously delusional.

Israel recently released 52 of 104 imprisoned terrorists to accommodate the Palestinian Authority's precondition to return to negotiations. Palestinian Media Watch documented that the terrorists, who were all murderers, were received by the PA leadership as heroes. As part of its ongoing glorification of the terrorists, PA TV interviewed Asrar Samrin who was serving a life sentence for the murder of Israeli Tzvi Klein (Dec. 3, 1991). The murderer explained that "the first question all Israeli media ask every released prisoner is: 'Do you regret what you did or not?'" His answer was:
"Through the great PA TV, I say to the Israelis: There is no Palestinian who did something for the homeland and his nation who will regret it. We don't regret what we did and we will not regret what we did."

In another PA TV interview earlier this year, a prisoner who was released after having served 10 years explained how prisoners spend their time.
He then described a typical prisoners' day, during which prisoners spend their time "chatting, talking, eating, drinking, joking and playing." This description also stands in sharp contrast to the oft-repeated libel by senior PA leaders that Israel mistreats prisoners:

Similarly, PMW reported in 2010 on another former prisoner who stated that the Palestinian prisoners "lack nothing" in Israeli prisons.
Recently, PA TV interviewed some relatives about the conditions when visiting prisoners. The PA TV host claimed that "the harassment of prisoners' families are well known," but the brother of a murderer essentially described a security check similar to what most passengers experience in airports:

These interviews with Palestinians contradict various ongoing PA libels. One prisoner described the conditions of Palestinian prisoners as "joke and play, etc., throughout the day" and the visitors described undergoing typical necessary security checks. In addition, confirming what many have argued, the released Palestinian murderers do not feel remorse or regret for their crimes.

The following are longer excerpts of the reports on official PA TV:
Note: Asrar Samrin - Serving a life sentence for the murder of Israeli citizen Tzvi Klein (Dec. 3, 1991). He was released in October 2013 as one of 104 terrorists Israel agreed to release, which was the PA's precondition for renewing negotiations.
Note: The guests on the show are relatives of Osama Abu Hananeh and Ahmad Abd Al-Aziz Qadura. Hananeh, Qadura and two others murdered Motti Biton and wounded his wife Molly near Jenin in October 1992. They were serving life time in prison, but were released in October 2013 as part of 104 terrorists Israel agreed to release, which was the PA's precondition for renewing negotiations.
