Terror Victims Group: Court is Backing Terrorists - by Gil Ronen

Bee's note:
Almagor chairman Meir Indor said, "The High Court has, in effect, erased the status of the victims and has given its protection to the men of terror".
As an American, I have great empathy for Chairman Indor and Israel, for we here in the states are experiencing the same situation with our "High Courts" and the Administration in Washington.

Are we all victims of those who have lost their sense of balance in protecting the rights of our citizens?  Or, are we "survivors" of the worst political decisions in the history of both our nations?  Oh, I know Israel's history goes back 3,000 years and they have proven beyond a doubt they are survivors, but I'm talking about the last 65 years, when Israel first became a "State" (again!).

Israel has been forced by world leaders who have a problem recognizing the sovereignty of Israel and its ability to understand what is best for its people. 

Whereas, in the United States, during the last five years, we, too, have watched our Congress, our President and our High Courts make un-Constitutional "laws" and decisions that are not in the best interests of its citizens.

Should we blame our leaders, or the people who voted for the leaders?  Blaming anyone won't correct or solve mistakes; wise decisions from this day forward is the only way we can save our future generations.

America's society and its culture are slipping away, due to bad decisions made in Washington.  I need not go over the list of wrongs - most are fully aware of what is happening to our nation.  And exposing those wrongs is a full time job; a 24-7 job!
I am an American, not Israeli, I couldn't begin to understand the politics of Israel.
However, I do know that without knowledge there can be no wisdom.  

Therefore, in order to correct the ill-advised and wicked corruptness in Washington, "we the people" need to have the fortitude, courage, and understanding of both the Constitution and Bill of Rights to correct the misguided decisions of those representing us in Washington, or our society today will not survive 10 more years.

I cannot offer any advice to our only friend in the Middle East, but I do offer my compassion to the victims of the families and my Israeli friends.
May the Lord have mercy on us all.
See: Why is setting murderers free likely to result in peace?

Almagor, an organization that represents victims of Arab terrorism, responded with sorrow to the High Court decision to reject its motion against the release of 26 terrorist murderers, as a “gesture” to the Palestinian Authority (PA).

Almagor chairman Meir Indor said, "We regret very much that the court, like the prime minister, did not even listen to the serious arguments regarding the government's crossing of red lines, including the fact that some of the terrorists being released committed their crimes after the Oslo accords were signed.

"The Supreme Court locked its gates today before the bereaved families and the Jewish terror victims – something it does not do when it comes to any Palestinians,” Indor added – noting, among other past decisions by the High Court, its willingness to force the state to change the route of the security fence, at the cost of hundreds of millions of dollars, because of complaints by Arabs.
"The High Court has, in effect, erased the status of the victims and has given its protection to the men of terror, who will be able to demand the release of murderers from now on,” he went on. “This is a very sad day for the bereaved families and Israeli society, and a day of victory for the terror organizations and their supporters.”
