Jewish terrorists to be released for peace?

Assuming that they are tried and convicted, can you ever, ever imagine Israel insisting on the release of the six youths who are accused of murdering Mohammed Abu Khadr as an incentive for coming to the table for 'peace talks'? Can you even imagine Israel insisting that the six be released as part of a final 'peace settlement'? You know 'forgive our enemy' and all that? Of course you can't. Why is that? Eugene Kontorovich explains four reasons why.
1) Prisoner swaps. We know Israel will never ask for these Jewish killers to be released as part of a peace deal. This is because Israel recoils with revulsion from their act. They are no one’s heroes.
2) Pensions. Israel will never pay pensions to the killers. The prime minister will not take photos with them, or do anything other than condemn them. The glib questions making the rounds–will Israel knock down the Jewish terrorists’ houses–rather avoids the question that home demolitions are in part a way of offsetting the generous financial benefits Palestinian terrorists receive.
4) Community support. The fact that the killers of three Jewish boys have hid out for three weeks shows they have a base of support, an organization: people to keep their secret, feed them, etc. Jewish killers had nowhere to hide because there is no Jewish community that accepts this.
All true. Kontorovich also has a great idea for Prime Minister Netanyahu.
A useful initiative for Prime Minister Netanyahu now would be to offer to make a joint statement with Abbas, that neither would ever seek the release of either set of killers.
Not a shot in hell that Abu Bluff would go along. That seems like all the more reason to make such a demand in public (like in front of the Americans) so that Abu Bluff can feel a little uncomfortable and embarrassed.

Hi disagree that they are nobody's heroes. They are heroes of the left. Because whenever an action like this occurs the left in Israel dance the hora and take full court advantageamd exploit the crisis to the nth degree.
