Israel's Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is poised to pardon two Palestinains with proven ties to terrorism, including one of the planners of the fatal November 2000 bombing of an Israeli school bus. That attack killed two teachers and seriously wounded three young children; all three children lost part of their legs.Wow. Not sure I agree with this, but I do know that it would be hard to accuse Sharon of not trying almost anything to secure the peace.
The pardoning of the two wanted terror chieftains comes as part of a series of unilateral Israeli good-will gestures, including a commitment to end targeted killing of terrorists and the deployment of armed PA police across Gaza. [Link]
