Another released terrorist rearrested

Challah Hu Akhbar is reporting that Ibrahim Abu Hijleh, who was one of the terrorists released as part of the terrorists for Gilad trade, has been rearrested. The IDF has not yet confirmed the report.
Abu Hijleh is a DFLP representative in the Palestinian National Council and his arrest by Israel was at the time condemned by the Palestinian Authority, who insisted that as “a member of the political echelon,” he should be exempt from arrest. During his interrogation, Abu Hijleh revealed the organization’s plans to assassinate a military judge, to kill a former senior officer in the Israel Defense Forces and to carry out a suicide attack, using a suicide bomber with an Israeli identity card.

His interrogation revealed the circumstances that led to an attempted come-back by the DFLP. Abu Hijleh he said that in 2001, he realized that the DFLP had not been over-successful in its operations and that the reality now required the organization to upgrade its activities to include attacks against Israeli targets. The year 2002 and the beginning of 2003 were characterized by a series of DFLP operational failures in carrying out terror attacks, a fact which led to a decline in the organization’s popularity compared to that of the more “successful” Palestinian organizations, such as Hamas and Yasser Arafat’s Fatah cells.

…At the end of 2001, a DFLP activist, Haytham ‘Antari, approached the organization’s offices and offered to carry out terror attacks in the name of the organization. Abu Hijleh instructed him to form a squad, which was declared operational in February of 2002. At that time, Abu Hijleh gave Haytham Antari three Kalashnikov rifles, three hand grenades and three rifle magazines. The weapons were the property of the DFLP office and the hand-grenades were purchased with funds received from the organization.
But Gilad's home... and he's becoming a sports broadcaster. So why worry about guys like Abu Hijleh?
