4 Congressional Members Send Letter to FBI’s Mueller and Hillary Clinton Asking Palestinians to be Put on Terrorist List

Rep. Berman was one the Congressional members who signed letter

The U.S. terrorist data base watch could get quite a few new names if it’s up to four Jewish Congress members.

The Jewish Telegraph Agency reports that the four Congress members wrote to FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton asking that they place on the list the names of the Palestinian prisoners who were recently released in exchange for Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who had been abducted and held prisoner since 2006. The move would prevent any of those people from entering the U.S.

The Jewish Telegraph Agency reported that Israel agreed to release 1,027 Palestinian men and women, and all but a handful were convicted of terrorism related crimes.

“Each of these Palestinian prisoners has been convicted of a terrorism-related offense and should be treated as such,” said the Oct. 28 letter, which was first obtained by Politico.

The letter was signed by Rep. Howard Berman (D-Calif.), the senior Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee; Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-N.Y.), the senior Democrat on its Middle East subcommittee; Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), the senior Democrat on the Energy and Commerce Committee; and Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.), the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
