Almagor Terror Victims Association is preparing a database of released terrorists so businesses can look up potential employees, accusing the Justice Ministry and Israel Police of negligence for not doing so themselves.
The initiative comes a week after Mu’taz Hijazi, a terrorist released from Israeli prison, attempted to assassinate Temple Mount activist Rabbi Yehuda Glick, outside the Menachem Begin Heritage Center. Hijazi worked in Terasa, the restaurant in the museum, where Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, President Reuven Rivlin and other senior officials have dined. Terasa's management said after the attack that they did not know Hijazi had been in Israeli prison for multiple stabbings and murder attempts.
"We checked, and the police and Justice Ministry do not have any system of warning workplaces," Almagor director Lt.-Col. Meir Indor explained, demanding that establish one to limit terrorists' easy access to Israelis.
Families of terror victims have already begun voluntarily providing the organization with details about the terrorists and who they killed or injured, and requested that the Justice Ministry provide them with information about the terrorists' locations.
