    People try to justify the release of Amir by comparing him to Palestinian POW's who are released, when there in really nothing in common between them at all. Amir was part of a faction that did not want peace with the Palestinian and disagreed with Rabin's peace overtures, so they had Amir murder an Israeli leader. For that crime Amir must spend his entire life in jail, for if Israel were to release those who kill its leaders every time they disagree with them, the Israeli democracy would surely be doomed.
