Limited release of Palestinian detainees

leave a comment »

Good news from Reuters – Israel Frees 159 Palestinians; Abbas Wants More Out: “Israel has vowed not to free prisoners with ‘blood on their hands’ — those jailed, according to Israel, for planning or carrying out attacks that have killed Israelis.” Unfortunately, the phrase, “with ‘blood on their hands'” can only be taken too literally, if you remember the murder of Israeli reservists detained in a Ramallah jailhouse. Nonetheless, this is positive news, given the flow of goodwill on both sides that seems to be moving the conflict in the right direction.
