When I looked over a list of the prisoners Israel is scheduled to release in the coming day in order to facilitate peace talks, I saw the name Isa Musa Isa Mahmud. The name meant nothing to me. But then I looked over to the column listing his victim and I saw the name, Nissim Toledano.
Nissim Toledano was a policeman. He was also a married father of two young children. One morning in December 1992, as he headed to work he was kidnapped by a gang of Hamas terrorists. In exchange for his release, the terrorists demanded the release of Sheikh Ahmed Yassin the leader of Hamas who had been jailed by Israel.
