The temporary truce between Israel and Hamas required Israel to release THREE Palestinian prisoners for every hostage Hamas releases (so much for fair deals). But who are these prisoners and why were they arrested? The media describes them as "mostly women and children." But Glenn did some digging and found out the truth. What the media should report is that the vast majority of these released prisoners are teenage boys, including some who opened fire on Jews, threw rocks at Jews, stabbed policemen, committed arson, and attempted to murder Israelis. So, will the media report on this? Or will they continue their history of praising "mostly peaceful" riots ...

GLENN: All right. So Hamas kidnapped children. Kids as young as four years old. I think they have a couple of babies, still. And they were exchanged, for what will be three times as many Palestinian security prisoners.
So Hamas is getting a pretty good deal.
STU: Wait a minute. I was told, everyone was very concerned about proportionate response.
Proportionate response would be the same amount. But no one seems concerned about it anymore. Why is that? I don't know!
GLENN: I don't know. I can't find a story about it.
STU: I can't either. No one is mentioning it, what a surprise.
GLENN: And I couldn't find a story today.
Finally found one, and it is from the Jerusalem Post. What a surprise. But had to look for 30 minutes!
Finally had to have one of my researchers find it.
I went to Jerusalem.
I couldn't even find it.
40 Israeli hostages were taken by Hamas. Three times as many Palestinian prisoners.
So who are they?
Well, they're women and minors, most of them.
GLENN: What did the children and women do?
Can't find them. Find a list of everybody's name.
But can't find even the charges.
STU: You know what I heard this morning?
STU: Most Palestinian young men and boys will be arrested bit Israeli military at some point in their lives. That was the --
GLENN: Really? The same ones that were toddlers, that were taught in preschool, how to kill Jews?
GLENN: Those people.
STU: At some point in their lives.
STU: At some point the Israeli military will come after them, because of who they are.
GLENN: Okay. So one of them was 16 years old.
He was from the West Bank, otherwise known as Judea and Samaria.
He was connected with FATA, FATA. And he was convicted of opening fire on Jews.
Now, he didn't kill anybody. Injured people.
But he didn't kill anybody. And he's a minor.
So he was given a sentence of five years, and two months in jail.
Oh, the humanity!
Can you imagine, if you had a 16-year-old kid in let's say, Chicago. That was just going to open up his gun, on a crowd of people. And just target them to kill them.
Every intent to kill them. But they were 16 years old. And they only injured several.
What would we do?
Would we give them five years? Two months in jail.
I think so.
Then you have Saudi Abu Adii of the West Bank. He was connected with Hamas. He was arrested when he was 17. This is one of the boys that they are saying, are being released. He was 17. He'll turn 18 in March.
He also opened fire on Jews, as well as throwing rocks. Breaking traffic laws. He was in pre-verdict detention, pending the outcome of his trial.
So this guy, this guy is just in trial. Remember, he -- April 2nd, 2023. He opened fire on a group of Jews to kill them, and then threw rocks.
The worst thing I could find was some of these people, they endangered security officials or threatened them, or they threw rocks.
STU: Yeah, I heard the throwing rocks thing.
As if, first of all, that's nothing. Throwing rocks at police officers is nothing.
GLENN: Well, throwing rocks, especially when you connect it to opening fire on Jews and throwing rocks. Kind of takes a different feel.
GLENN: Mora Beck here, of East Jerusalem, and connected with Hamas, arrested October 2015, at the age of 16.
She stabbed a border policeman who survived. She was sentenced to eight and a half years in prison.
Another prisoner to be released is Ahmed Marzook, 18, arrested four months ago for assaulting police, arson, possession of weapons, and other charges.
Amani Heshem, 37, arrested in December, 2016, charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm. Armed with knives and daggers. Then you have Walia Khalid Fazi Tangy. How many names? 26-year-old, arrested in August of last year, was charged with attempted murder and possession of weapons and explosives.
So last August, he was arrested. He's 26.
You know, one of the boys that may have been threatening security of Israel of some sort.
Significant minority. Significant minority, committing crimes that were either killing people, or attempted to kill people.
The remaining majority supported or were involved with a terror group, in some dangerous way. The oldest Palestinian on the release list, I think is the 59-year-old woman, who has the scars on her face.
Did you see her come home?
Yeah. She's horribly disfigured.
She was in a --
STU: Israel do that to her?
GLENN: No. No. She was in a car accident. Well, it wasn't a car accident. It was more like a suicide bombing vest, and she -- she caught on fire. And gosh, darn it, gosh darn it, just this innocent woman that, you know, almost burned to death. And was probably treated in an Israeli hospital. But don't worry, we're swapping them for 4-year-olds. And I think that's equal.
STU: Proportionate response.
GLENN: It is. Thank you for that. Thank you for that.
It is hard to watch this play out. I mean, it's hard to watch the families. And not feel good about it. I mean, I can't hold it against -- if this was my children, I would be feeling the same way. I don't care. Let her go. Let her go.
Being able to see some of the faces that were on the abducted posters that were torn down by so many. To see the faces of them returned and united with family members, if not their parents, because if many of their parents were killed. Many of their mothers and sisters were raped violently.
I don't know if you're following what is being now exposed.
But Elon Musk was there yesterday.
And I think he got an eyeful.
I don't know if you've been -- I don't know if you -- if you have been following what they have been doing to the women.
Now, Hamas says no, no, no. This is against the Koran.
Is it? Oh, tree.
Oh, tree. Shout out.
There's a Jew behind that rock.
They say, it's -- it's against the Koran, to be able to rape a woman.
Well, what if they're an infidel.
I think we went through this with Barbary Pirates. I think we went through some of this.
They raped women and children.
Sometimes one person who has now testified as an eyewitness said, this one girl was being raped horribly. Her pelvis and her legs were broken.
And she was passed around. And then when they were done, while he was still in her, shot her in the back of the head. That's the kind of depravity we're dealing with. It is horrendous. And just for the Christmas spirit, you know, the -- the ghost of Hamas past will visit again, unless we snuff it out. And, you know what, the ghost of Hamas future, we need to choose now. Because these things are not coming here. These things are already here. Look at what is being said loudly. Proudly. Our campuses. By people we thought maybe some people thought were allies. Saying it on our streets. Saying it to people.
Meaning it. This is man made hell. And demons on our streets, who revel in blood and death. And it is already here. So we have to choose life, or choose death.
That is -- that is as simple as it gets.
Choose life. That's it.
I don't want to be a culture. I don't want to be part of the culture of death.
And I'm sorry. If you say you're going to do this to people. I take you at your word.
You know, I saw a little boy run to his mom.
And that was a piece of heaven in the here and now. But October 7th was the gaping mouth of hell itself. And it is also here and now.
So how do we -- how is there contact between heaven and hell? How is this possible?
We don't understand it, because we don't understand our own divine nature. God gave humans power of creation.
Everything you think, everything you believe, is creative. I just want you to think of this.
How are people destroying our country? Right now, how are they destroying us? They knew you couldn't destroy America from the outside, right? It had to come from within.
And once it came from within, you divide and conquer.
Is that only true for countries and civilizations? Or can we look at the small data, and look at us as individuals.
Are we being divided as a one individual.
Are you being divided, from who you really are?
To what you -- what people want you to be.
What they want you to believe.
Do you believe in good anymore?
Do you believe you're a force for good? Do you believe you know what the truth is, anymore?
Truth hasn't changed.
It hasn't changed.
Our governments have.
But the truth hasn't changing.
They have divided each of us internally, from the truth. That's how you conquer a whole people. You divide them up inside. You get them to stop believing in goodness. In decency. Stop getting -- stop them from saying, wait a minute. This is wrong. I don't care what you say. You've gone insane!
