FACT:- Israel never agreed to releasing pre-Oslo Israeli Arab terrorists as part of the 4th round of releases and Secretary of State John Kerry misled the Palestinians and told them that Israel had agreed to release them.
This is not something told reporters by tertiary sources. It isn't even something told on background not for attribution.
It is something that senior Israeli ministers have said for attribution. Further, they have said this in interviews broadcast on Israel Radio over the past week.
Again: the 4th release as far as the Palestinians are concerned includes the Israeli Arabs. And this wasn't going to happen in a vacuum.
PM Netanyahu made this clear from the start.
This is a mess caused by Secretary of State Kerry's decision to apparently make the assumption that he could easily force PM Netanyahu to release the Israeli Arabs.
But PM Netanyahu was absolutely honest in explaining that it would take very special and unique circumstances to make it possible for the Cabinet to approve the release of the Israeli Arab terrorists.
