Terror victims association: Gov't paying exaggerated price for Schalit tape

Terror Victims Associati

Terror Victims Association Almagor criticized on Wednesday the Israeli government for the deal struck with Hamas to release 20 female Palestinian prisoners in exchange for a video tape proving captive IDF soldier Gilad Schalit is alive. Meir Indor, CEO of Almagor, called the initiative "a trivial pursuit, which does not bode well for the exaggerated prices the government will pay in the future." Indor stated that while the previous government of prime minister Ehud Olmert received letters written by Schalit at no cost, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will be freeing "potentially murderous terrorists" in exchange for a "Hamas propaganda tape." Almagor will consider filing a petition to the High Court in order to protest the initiative, Indor said in the statement.
