Freeing Samir Kuntar

In a follow-up to his recent piece arguing for ignoring Israel’s national interest and releasing terrorists in exchange for captive Israeli soldiers, former Rabin aide Eitan Haber writes in Thursday’s Ynet that convicted murderer Samir Kuntar should be freed by Israel, if needed. Kuntar is the Lebanese Druse who snuck into Israel in 1979 and killed four people, including a 4-year-old girl and her father.
