Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas met with Samir Kuntar, the notorious child killing terrorist, during a trip to Lebanon. Kuntar was recently released by Israel in a prisoner exchange with Hezbollah. In 1979, Kuntar murdered an Israeli family including a 4 year old girl whose skull he crushed with a rifle butt. Israeli PM Ehud Olmert admonished Abbas for meeting with Kuntar which is certainly disconcerting enough. Then again such a meeting would not have taken place had Olmert not consented to his release in the first place.
