Israeli group opposes more prisoner swaps

TEL AVIV, Israel, Oct. 31 (UPI) -- An Israeli group opposed to the Gilad Shalit prisoner swap says it will publicly detail crimes committed by prisoners involved in the exchange.

Meir Indor, head of the Almagor Victims of Terror Association, said connecting the names of the prisoners to the specific terror attacks they committed will make the public less likely to support future prisoner swaps, The Jerusalem Post reported Monday.

"We are taking the law into our own hands so that terror victims can get updates on the terrorists who are responsible for specific attacks," Indor told the newspaper.

The searchable online database would be the first comprehensive center of information for prisoners freed as a result of a deal negotiated to obtain the Oct. 18 release of Shalit, an Israeli soldier held captive by Hamas for more than five years.

Almagor was founded in 1986 after 1,150 prisoners were released in exchange for three soldiers kidnapped during the First Lebanon War, the newspaper said
