Was released, promised to go and sin no more and went on to plan and be complicit in the murders of hundreds and the wounding of thousands of Israelis. He was executed to prevent further Israeli deaths and what was the sentimental reaction of talkbackers? 'poor old blind crippled man'. Whereas the truth was that he was a multiple murderer: half blind and in a wheelchair, true. But without my specs I'm half blind too and I don't use that as an excuse to kill people. Reaching the age of 68? is that a reason to forgive his murders? Perhaps it's the sports accident in his youth that gave him permission to kill. It's not clear.
