My Arab friends in the West Bank are against any of the prisoners coming to their towns. They are hard working doctors, teachers, business people and have real lives as opposed to the Gazans who have only Hamas and politics. All of the violent offenders should be sent to Gaza or other countries willing to take them. I am sure the UK will take some and probably Sweden as well. They can live out their lives as honored "freedom fighters" in those places. According to my friend - their return will harm enormous progress made in the West Bank and set it back to the bad old days. People there just want to live good lives and raise their children to go to college and not become jihadis. Her son might end up coming here for college to become a third generation dentist and I would be thrilled to be his adopted family.
