Galia Tamam lost her son Moshe on August 6, 1984. Sitting by Moshe's memorial monument outside her home in Havatzelet Hasharon, Tamam described how life changed since Moshe, who was 19 years old, and on his way back home from his army base, was kidnapped and murdered by 4 Israeli Arabs from Baka Al Gharbiya.

Captured and jailed in 1986, Moshe's killers are on the list of over a hundred Palestinian and Israeli Arab prisoners to be released over the course of renewed peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. The Tamam family along with many other Israeli families who suffered the same tragedy, have been struggling to prevent the release of prisoners, most of whom with blood on their hands.

"People who carry the tragedy- it is hard for them to believe that there can be peace at the expense of blood," Tamam said. "Politicians and leaders who consider and examine the possibility of peace - it is legitimate, but it's legitimate on one side, there are two sides to a coin.

"One who carries a tragedy, it's hard for him to believe, it's hard for him to relate to the side that believes."
