BERLIN – The city of Bizerte in Tunisia last week honored convicted murderer Samir Kuntar, who carried out a brutal 1979 attack in Nahariya that killed of Israeli policeman Eliyahu Shahar, and Danny Haran and his four-year-old daughter, Einat Haran.
Kuntar also caused the death of two-year-old Yael Haran, who suffocated because her mother, Smadar, sought to prevent her from making noise as she tried to hide her daughter from Kuntar.
Kuntar, a Lebanese Druse, was released in a 2008 prisoner swap with Hezbollah. At the time, Middle East expert Dr. Daniel Pipes termed Kuntar “a psychopath and the most notorious prisoner in Israel’s jails.”
