Former foreign minister Avigdor Liberman vowed on Sunday that the Jordanian perpetrator of the 1997 murder of Israeli schoolgirls would not be released.
Liberman commented on Facebook following the signature of nearly all of Jordan's MPs -
110 out of 120 - on a petition last week calling for the release of
Jordanian Army Corporal Ahmed Daqamseh, who murdered seven Israeli
schoolgirls on March 12, 1997 at the Island of Peace site near
In light of the petition, Liberman highlighted the silence of left wing members of the Knesset and Arab
Knesset factions, "who regularly speak of human rights when dealing with
Palestinians, or issues that occur in Israel, but are quiet in the face
of massacres conducted by Palestinians, and others in Syria, or other
shocking cases around the Arab world."
Liberman added that one who murders innocent children should not be entitled to any relief and should be treated as servery as possible.
