Dozens of US Congressmen on Friday petitioned US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and FBI Director Robert Mueller to put the Palestinian terrorists freed by Israel last week in exchange for Gilad Schalit on the terrorist watch-list, the American political journal Politico reported.

In the petition they wrote, "Each of these released Palestinian prisoners has been convicted of a terrorism-related offense and should be treated as such," according to the report.

Israel agreed to release 1,027 Palestinian security prisoners in exchange for Gilad Schalit.

Four-hundred seventy-seven were released on October 18 at the same time as the young Israeli soldier, who had spent more than five years held captive by the Hamas terrorist organization. Many of those released had been imprisoned for murdering Israelis.
