Humans - the WORST kind of monsters [link]

People say that it is wrong to describe our opponents using term that make them seem less than human.

Well, considering the fact that humans can be the most foul kind of monsters, I don't see how that is possible. Take this monster for that Hezbollah wants freed from an Israeli jail:

IN his Israeli jail cell Samir Qantar, who is serving four life sentences for murder and terrorism, dreams about an exchange of prisoners that might allow him to go home to Lebanon.

Qantar, 44, has been in prison since 1979, when he took part in an attack whose horrifying outcome made him one of the most hated men in Israel.

Qantar’s role in the attack on the coastal town of Nahariya 27 years ago would make this an especially bitter pill for Israelis to swallow. A policeman was killed and a family taken hostage when Qantar’s group burst into their home.

Danny Haran, 28, was shot at close range in front of his terrified four-year-old daughter Einat, whose head was then smashed with a rifle butt.

The dead man’s wife Smadar hid in a loft with their two-year-old daughter Yael, keeping a hand over her mouth to stop her crying out. But the girl suffocated, leaving Smadar Haran bereft of her husband and both daughters.

Qantar, the longest-held Lebanese prisoner in Israel, was convicted of the murders of Danny and Einat Haran but his family in Lebanon continues to claim that he could not have killed them because he had been injured in a shoot-out with police by the time they died.

The punishment should fit the crime...but there is no way to make Qantar pay for what he did. Yet now it is possible that he may be released. Hezbollah will be rewarded for its crimes in attacking Israel, killing her soldiers and taking others hostage, by allowing other killers to be released from jail.

Well, Qantar may be released, but Israel should not forget or forgive what these HUMAN monsters have done. If the Lebanonese Muslims cheer Qantar's type of violence, then they should be seen as accomplices after the fact.

One thing that was never mentioned in the media was Smadar Haran's last memories of her husband and daughters. According to a 1980's Israeli newpaper which wrote an article about Smadar Haran and the event of April 22, 1979 (the night her family was murdered), which read as follows:

"According to Smadar Haran, her last memories of Danny and Einat, that day, were when they were being led away at gun point by Kuntar. She could hear from her closet space Danny telling Einat, "Don't be scared, my baby, it will be alright" and Einat replied to him in her little voice, "Dad, where is Mommy? I want Mommy."

"Smadar's last memory of her 2-year-old daughter, Yael, was when her little daughter was taken to the apartment hiding space. Right before Yael had her mouth covered by her mother, she asked her mother "Where is my little pacifier." There was no time to search for the pacifier. Minutes later Smadar covered Yael's mouth to keep her from revealing the hiding space. Smadar soon felt her daughter's tiny tongue licks and lip sucking on the palm of her hand. She didn't know what to make of it at first but hours later was told by doctors and paramedics that the reason Yael was licking her palm while she covered her mouth was because she was gasping for air."

The sad thing is, that the Israeli government might "surrender" Kuntar, and release him from jail, in order to secure the release OR REMAINS of Goldwasser and Regev.
