Netanyahu proposes to release 104 killers

Reader comment on item: The Right Moment for Israel's Danny Danon?

Submitted by Steve (Canada), Aug 5, 2013 at 18:05

Since it's a given that Netanyahu agrees with Pipes, Danny Danon, and for that matter who knows how many tens of thousands who simply can't believe Netanyahu would do such a thing, the real question is this: How did Obama manage to strong-arm Netanyahu into this decision? What pressure was so great that Netanyahu had to act contrary to his every fibre?

Netanyahu could well have decided he wants this for ego reasons. See http://www.danielpipes.org/13053/netanyahu-turning-left
