A mannequin depicting a prisoner (described as a Guantanamo Bay victim, though it looks more like an Abu Ghraib reference to me) was reportedly snuck into one of the dioramas alongside of Disneyland’s Big Thunder Mountain last week. The Wooster Collective site (which erroneously identifies the ride as “Rocky Mountain Railroad”) says that it’s the work of notorious prankster/graffiti writer Banksy, though nothing on Banksy’s site confirms that.

A terror victims group published a report Thursday on Arab security prisoners “without blood on their hands,” who were released by Israel and returned to prison with “much blood on their hands.”

The report, by the Almagor Terror Victims Association, demonstrates that at least 14 of the major terrorist attacks in recent years were carried out by terrorists released from prison in the context of various “good will gestures” and Israeli prisoner deals. All of them were released with assurances to the public that they did not have “blood on their hands,” – a euphemism for those prisoners whose deadly attacks failed to prove fatal.

Between the years 1993-1999, in the context of “confidence building measures” and prisoner deals, Israel released 6,912 terrorists. 854 of them (14%) were arrested subsequently for murder, attempted or otherwise. There are no statistics available for those who returned to non-fatal terrorist activities, instruction or logistical support.

“The mass killing due to these attacks included 123 murdered Israeli citizens, a huge number of victims with disabilities due to the attack and many other victims,” the report concludes. “In all the previous death-bargains, the overwhelming majority of those released returned to terrorist activities, at the cost of a huge destruction of life.”

A sampling of the report:
