MK Yariv Levin: released terrorists must not receive 'acclimation' payments.

...Levin explained that if it were up to him, he would pass a law simply denying terrorists all NII payments and stipends, forever. However, he explained to Arutz Sheva, the current coalition can be expected to shoot down any such legislation, especially with dovish Minister Tzipi Livni heading the key Ministerial Committee for Legislation, which decides the fate of bills.
He added that attempts to pass legislation cutting off NII assistance to freed terrorists failed in the former Knesset, because of leftist opposition. In the end, a watered-down version of the bill was passed, which cut by 50% some of the stipends they may receive as Israeli citizens. (Read the entire report for the details)
Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Duh! What on earth should convicted terrorists receive ANY money at all, EVER?!
I mean, even if we were to believe that that criminals can actually be rehabilitated through the Israeli Prison System, and that they should get a stipend, in order to help them reintegrate back into Israeli society, then we would still leave these terrorists out of this equation.
They are all ideologues anyway. Even those who were supposedly coerced into murdering Jews by shooting, poisoning, planting a bomb, blowing himself up, or assisting in some way, so what?!
That's just too bad. They made the wrong choices, and wrong choices have consequences.

It is bad enough that these prisoners have television, a gymnasium, internet access, and eat better they have on the outside. But, they when released they were getting stipends as well??!!
Only in Israel... (SIGH)
Well, regarding this situation, at least one Member of K'nesseth has been trying to the "justice" back into the Israeli Judicial System, and that is Yariv Levin.
