Israeli leftist Fahima consoles family of J'lem yeshiva terrorist

 Israeli leftist Fahima consoles family of J'lem yeshiva terrorist
 By Haaretz Service 

Israeli left-wing activist Tali Fahima, previously convicted of aiding Palestinian militants, paid a consolation visit to the family of the terrorist who gunned down students at a Jerusalem yeshiva last Thursday, killing eight.
"I was with the family and I have no doubt that the State of Israel's security forces are mainly just inflaming [the situation], and causing the killing of citizens - like those yeshiva students, because of the many years-long policy of occupation," Fahima told Israel Radio.
Eight yeshiva students between the ages of 15 and 26 were killed in the attack at the Mercaz Harav seminary, and nine others were wounded.
According to Fahima, "I would be happy to visit the families of the murdered [yeshiva students], but if I arrive there they would kill me. I belong to an ethical, humane place."
Fahima demanded that Israel immediately turn the terrorist's body over to his family. "Give them their body right now. There is no issue here of siding with the act or not," she said.
The activist said she does not fear responses in Israel to her visit, noting that "also when I stood as a human shield - they branded me a traitor."
Fahima plead guilty in December 2005 to maintaining contacts with a foreign agent with the intention of harming state security, and was sentenced to three years in prison.
She was specifically convicted of aiding Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades militants, including the group's leader in Jenin Zakariya Zubeidi, and was released from Neve Tirzah Prison in January 2007.
