Dr. Alan Bauer, who was seriously injured along with his son in the 2002 King George Street terror attack in Jerusalem, protested against the deal to free 1,027 prisoners in exchange for Gilad Schalit outside of the High Court of Justice on Monday. The High Court was hearing petitions against the deal submitted by terror victims' families.

"My son is no different than Gilad Schalit, why are his rights less than Gilad's," Bauer asked. "He had a screw through his brain," he added.

Bauer accused the media of coming out strongly in favor of the deal.

"We're thinking of future terror victims, not just past terror victims," he added.
