Time for the death penalty for terrorists


Dear Editor:

After reading the article in the Feb. 13 edition of The Heritage by Stephen Flatlow, “How to respond to honors for Palestinian killer,” I would like to make a suggestion.

In the article, he notes that the terrorist Hussain Fayadh who was involved with the murder of an American and 36 Israelis in 1978 was released in a prisoner swap and is currently working for the PA and their television station.

And then there is the terrorist, Sajda al-Rishawi who in 2005 in Amman, Jordan took part in the bomb attack that killed 57 people. ISIS wanted to trade her for the Jordanian pilot and Japanese man that they were holding captive.

I bring up these two examples because I do not know about anyone else, but I think that it is time for the world to institute the death penalty for terrorists.  It is time to take away any hope that these terrorists have that one day they will be free, no matter what terrible atrocities they have commited.

These terrorists have taken away all hope from the families of the people that they have murdered and they should receive no mercy and have no hope for a future.

A mandatory death sentence is what they deserve and what they should get.
