Lapid Says Upcoming Prisoner Swap Too Risky

Schalit Bibi

Another prisoner swap is in the works, and Yair Lapid is using it to good advantage to bash the Netanyahu government. Lapid discussed the swap on Kan Reshet Bet, and talked about the video released by Hamas, purporting to depict Avera Mengistu. The former PM said that a repeat of the Schalit deal is “too high of a risk.”
The recidivism rate for terrorists is very high. In the Schalit deal, several of the released terrorists went on to murder Jews, including those responsible for kidnapping and murdering the three boys in 2014, HY”D. Note that Schalit was in captivity for five years. Mengistu, who is mentally ill, has been in the custody of Hamas for eight.
