A Sentence I Can Get Behind

Unlike the 30 months given to a Bali-bombing terrorist in Indonesia, an Israeli-Arab has been sentenced to 42 years for aiding suicide bombers, according to David Rudge in the Jerusalem Post. Muwafak Iruk transported two bombers to Tel Aviv's old central bus station two years ago. Their terrorist attack killed 23 Israelis and foreign workers as well as injuring dozens more. Hope that 700 NIS was worth it, buddy.

Ditto.

I hope that every last moment of his miserable life will be more miserable than the last.

The fact that he's not just taken out into the street and shot in front of a cheering mob is illustrative of the stark contrast between the Jewish/Israeli conception of justice, and that of Palestinian Arabs.

I cannot understand why criminal conduct that results in the murder of 23 Israelis and foreign workers as well as injuring dozens more, does not call for life without chance of release. That sends the wrong message.

I'm with you, patrick!

Marty, great point. I guess it takes little to make me grateful these days -- and it was far better than the 30 months we just saw. But you're right.

That is exactly right. It also is a fact that is often lost on the MSM.
