They are not misguided. They are not confused. They are not oppressed. They're evil. This is what this war is about. It is purely and simply a war against true evil. This is Samir Kuntar. One of the terrorists whose release Hizbullah is demanding in exchange for their Israeli hostages. This is the face of evil.
"Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah demanded at a news conference held yesterday at the Hezbollah's headquarters in Beirut that Israel release three Lebanese prisoners it is holding - Samir Kuntar, Yehiya Saqaf and Nasim Nasser and promised that he would demand the release of additional Arab prisoners in the course of negotiations."
"Samir Kuntar is “a beacon of light” for having slaughtered an Israeli father and his two young daughters in a terrorist attack in 1979, according to the PA-controlled daily newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida. On Thursday the PA daily featured an article labeling Kuntar an “authentic role model” for all Palestinian Arabs."
...and here is what Samir Kuntar or Quntar, hero of Hezbollah and the Palestinian people did in the words of one of his victims.
"They held Danny and Einat while they searched for me and Yael, knowing there were more people in the apartment. I will never forget the joy and the hatred in their voices as they swaggered about hunting for us, firing their guns and throwing grenades. [Emphasis mine-SW] I knew that if Yael cried out, the terrorists would toss a grenade into the crawl space and we would be killed. So I kept my hand over her mouth, hoping she could breathe. As I lay there, I remembered my mother telling me how she had hidden from the Nazis during the Holocaust. "This is just like what happened to my mother," I thought.
As police began to arrive, the terrorists took Danny and Einat down to the beach. There, according to eyewitnesses, one of them shot Danny in front of Einat so that his death would be the last sight she would ever see. Then he smashed my little girl's skull in against a rock with his rifle butt. That terrorist was Samir Kuntar.
By the time we were rescued from the crawl space, hours later, Yael, too, was dead. In trying to save all our lives, I had smothered her."
