Miki Goldwasser slams army for not releasing Kuntar earlier

Miki Goldwasser, the mother of kidnapped IDF reservist Ehud Goldwasser, slammed the army on Thursday for opposing a deal to free her son, claiming that if Lebanese terrorist Samir Kuntar had been released earlier, her son would not have been abducted in the first place. In a letter to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Miki said: "I heard that the defense minister summoned the heads of the army to discuss the release of Samir Kuntar in exchange for the boys. There were some who objected. And I ask: How dare they object? These are the ones who... made the kidnappings possible." Goldwasser implored Olmert and the rest of the government ministers to vote in favor of a deal that would include her son and fellow reservist Eldad Regev.
