The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing. Albert Einstein:

Israel receives two coffins

"The families of the two soldiers had clung to the hope that they were still alive, despite the assumption by Israeli officials that they did not survive the July 12, 2006 kidnap. A Lebanese newspaper affiliated to Hezbollah reported Tuesday that one of the two had been killed in the attack, but did not specify which, or give details of the condition of the second soldier. "


Cries of horror sounded at the Regev and Goldwasser homes Wednesday, as family members witnessed the TV broadcast of the prisoner exchange, in which the coffins of Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser were shown being turned over to the Red Cross.

.... As for the fact the as part of the prisoner exchange deal, Israel will have to set Samir Kuntar free, Goldwasser said that "it's important to me that the Lebanese people understand what they've sacrificed and for what.

"They've lost some 800 men and their entire economy (in the Second Lebanon War) and for what? For someone who killed a four-year-old? Can someone like that be called a hero?

The Iconoclast:

Three Things You Have To Know About Samir Kuntar, And One Other Thing

And there is one more thing you need to know. But it’s not about Samir Kuntar, though Samir Kuntar comes into it. You should know the present government of Israel, the government of Ehud Olmert, is this very day, Wednesday, July 16, 2008, giving freedom to the smiling unrepentent Samir Kuntar, alive and well and about to be feted all over Lebanon as a hero, in exchange for the corpses of two murdered Israeli university students, Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev, who were captured alive while doing their annual reserve duty.

Snoopy of Simply Jews sees a silver lining:

As for Samir Kuntar, who will become a most celebrated hero in Lebanon after crushing a Jewish baby's skull against a rock: even in the pain we all feel because of the necessity to release him, there is a silver lining. Look at the people who celebrate release of one of the most inhuman murderers and learn. Look at the sweets being handed around to the crowds in Gaza, at Lebanese president and prime minister receiving the monster, at Shiites and others lining the roads on the way to the vermin's family house, at Palestinian president Abu Mazen congratulating the "hero's" family. Look, learn and remember.

And how could we forget the chief sleazebag pulling the ropes from the bunker, the "mastermind" who became so adept in torturing the minds and the souls of the people he hates? A person who accumulated so much "good will" of so many Israelis should be worried about his future indeed. Where there is a will, there is a way, Nasrallah. Sleep badly.

Solomonia: Tries to comprehend the evil. Without success.
