The announcement that Israel has agreed to release Palestinian prisoners as a gesture for the resumption of peace talks is a terrible mistake, both morally and politically, former leader of the settler umbrella organization Dani Dayan said Saturday.

Dayan, who stepped down after five years as head of the Council of Jewish Communities of Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip in January, told Israel Radio that it now must be determined "what else Israel agreed to give up to please Abu Mazen [Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas].Dayan called on Likud and Bayit Yehudi MKs to demand that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu disclose the details of the concessions he made in order to restart negotiations.
