What you guys make of this?
What's that? They freed a German hostage in Iraq? What a coincidence!
But of course we all know it has nothing to do with this: "Germany frees killer of U.S. diver," from CNN, with thanks to all who sent this in:
BERLIN, Germany (CNN) -- A Hezbollah militant sentenced to life in Germany for murdering a U.S. Navy diver during the 1985 hijacking of a U.S. jetliner has been freed, officials said.
The German government denied on Tuesday the release was related to the freeing of a German hostage in Iraq.
Mohammed Ali Hamadi was released Thursday and allowed to return to his native Lebanon on the next day, after qualifying for parole after 19 years in prison, said Ulrich Hermanski, spokesman for the North Rhine Wesphalia state justice ministry....
Hamadi was convicted in 1989 in Frankfurt, Hessen state, for the beating and shooting of Robert Dean Stethem, a 23-year-old U.S. Navy diver whose body was thrown on the tarmac at Beirut airport during the hijacking of TWA Flight 847....
The German government also denied there was any link between Hamadi's release and the freeing of Suzanne Osthoff, a German archaeologist, in Iraq last week.

that murder was 20 years ago, so it would right around the time he could be held for in germany. 20 years is as stiff a prison term as there is in germany. they believe in rehabilitating criminals, not punishing them.

I say again, **** Germany and it's stupid ass laws. I hate this whole country and I would move back to the States if I didn't have a son here and a pregnant girlfriend...

If that's the law then I accept it but I don't respect it. 20 years is not enough for deliberately murdering someone.

i gotta agree with you AIZ for most counts. if the person seems to be reformed after 20 years, then i'd say okay, but having 20 years as a ceiling for sane people is kinda dumb.

lol i love when they say "anrisemitism is on the rise in europe" - too bad they don't feel it's PC to relate that it's almost entirely isolated to the immigrant islamic communities. i have absolutely no idea why such people are allowed in.

I think twenty year's is probably more than most people do for murder in Europe.

I dont think there was a deal with Hezbollah , because this guy was working under the Sheikh Sobhi el tofayli leadership , and later Sobhi el Tofayli broke up from Hezbollah and made his own Hezbollah in Baalbek , Sheikh Sobhi is also responsible of the Lebanese "poor people" armed Intifada and he clashed with the Lebanese Army, Sheikh Sobhi is an outlaw now.

Yes a life sentance in sweden is just 20 years or so. We have a serial killer here that is allowed OUT FROM THE PRISON from time to time. He can go hiking with some guards, have picnics ect. Its disgusting. In his cell he has a dvd player, computer, tv, stereo ect.
