Israel returns bodies, Palestinians hold parties

Sometime during the day of May 30, 2012 Israel returned the bodies of more than 90 Palestinian terrorists to the Palestinian Authority.  And the Palestinians reacted by celebrating the return of their martyr heroes.

Admittedly shaken by this, I penned the following column that appeared in the Monday, June 4, 2012 edition of the New York Post.
As a “goodwill gesture,” Israel last week returned the remains of 91 Palestinian suicide bombers and other terrorists. The Palestinian Authority responded by holding a “national rally” to glorify the “martyrs” and will bury them with “full military honors.”
I know, I know — sounds like the same old news from the Middle East: Israelis making one-sided concessions, Palestinians heaping praise on murderers. For most, it’s probably getting a little boring.
Not for our family. For us, it’s personal.

What do you think about the glorification of terrorists?  I'd like to know.
