News the HP Doesn't Cover: PA Wants Even More Prisoners Released

Less than six months after a massive prisoner release by Israel, including prisoners with blood on their hands, the Palestinian Authority is demanding more (and are being backed up by the American government):
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected a Palestinian and American request to move up the expected release of Palestinian terrorists serving extended sentences in Israeli prisons, according to Haaretz.
Israel agreed in July to a four-stage release of 104 prisoners serving sentences for acts of terror committed before the signing of the Oslo Accords in 1993. The agreement was intended as a sign of good faith ahead of the renewed American-brokered peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.The first group of prisoners was released in August, just after talks between the two sides restarted.The second group of some 25 prisoners was slated to be released on October 29, but the Palestinian Authority asked Israel to release the prisoners in time for the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha next week.

Give an inch, and they try to take a mile.
