IDF: Terrorists Always Return to Terror

[Jerusalem Post] Yaakov Katz - Palestinians released in prisoner exchanges "always returned to terrorism," a high-ranking officer in Central Command warned Sunday. He said three senior Islamic Jihad officials, who were released in the 2003 swap with Hizbullah, were currently involved in the group's buildup in Nablus and Hebron. "This is what happens when terrorists are released in such deals," he said, "they immediately return to terrorist activity." The officer said the Palestinians had been strengthening themselves militarily in preparation for another round of violence, and that 187 suicide attacks had been thwarted over the past year. He also said, "There is no such thing as an official Palestinian security branch that is not made up of terrorists."
