Another Reason Israel Won't Bomb Iran

If you have read my latest article, "Israel Won't Attack Iran's Nuclear Facilities" on IC today please note I wrote it before this weekend's developments which are all the more reason the Olmert government won't initiate any military incursion in Iran. Israel through Germany is in the midst of reaching terms to receive the remains of two Israeli soldiers - Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev - who were kidnapped by Hezbollah two years ago as well as the remains of Israeli air force pilot Ron Arad, who was shot down in Lebanon in 1986. In exchange, Israel will release hundreds of prisoners including Samir Kuntar. In 1979, Kuntar murdered 4 Israelis including two children. After shooting and then drowning Einar Kuntar's father in front of her he then smashed her skull with his rifle butt on a pile of rocks. Einar Kuntar was four years old. If that offense doesn't call for the death penalty then nothing does. But instead Kuntar gets to live and now will be released to kill again.

This is not the behavior of a government about to bomb Iran.
