The Importance of Samir Kuntar

In a world where there is precious little justice to be found, some was done this past weekend in the form of a missile strike on a building in Damascus on Saturday, Samir Kuntar was killed. Kuntar, a Lebanese Druze, had spent 30 years in prison for leading a terror attack on northern Israel that resulted in the deaths of four people, including two children. Released in 2008 in an exchange with Hezbollah, Kuntar returned to Lebanon and was acclaimed a hero by both the Lebanese and Palestinians. Since then, he’s been a leading Hezbollah operative credited with helping to build a terror network in the Golan Heights as well as playing a role in the defense of the murderous Assad regime in Syria.

    Any lawful prisoners who have been convicted of terrorist crimes and who are freed early via extortion and return to their criminal pursuits have signed their own death sentences. The only question should be why were they taken alive in the first place.

      The fact that this fiend and others like him exist helps to show the Palestinians as projecting liars when they accuse Israel of doing the same thing.

      It also helps to cement the view of Hizbollah’s emblem as being equal to the Swastika…

    It IS fascinating to try and understand why a terrorist must be fed, clothed and treated just so in prison, but as soon as he’s released you can bomb him to bits. Why the squeamishness in the jail cell?

    surely his key importance is that he is dead?
