This is the definition of Highway robbery: Hamas gives Israel Gilad Shalit back - in whatever state he may be - in exchange for 1027 convicted terrorists....

I dont know about you, but if i were offerred this, i would probably puke. It is so egregiously exorbitant, so replulsively one-sided, i am just left speechless. It would be better for Gilad Shalit to stay in captivity, as horrible as that is, than to let free 1027 men who will go back to doing what they were doing before they were put in jail. This 'get out of jail free card' just ENCOURAGES Hamas and other islamist terrorist groups that kidnapping Israelis WORKS!

I HATE Natanyahu for doing this. He has made a complete and total mockery of Judaism - by invoking the "save one life and you save the whole world" statement in the talmud, which assuredly would not have been applied by any truly religious, and objective minded Jew, aswell as Israelis.

This is sickening

Active duty and reserve soldiers from elite counter-terrorism units who risked their lives during previous missions to capture terrorists submitted a petition to the Netanyahu government protesting the wholesale release of terrorists in exchange for the release of kidnapped Gilad Shalit after six years in Hamas captivity.

The organizers write, "We, soldiers past and present, vehemently oppose return of terrorists to their homes, which undermines years of work and raises the overall risk of soldiers being killed in the line of duty,

"We are very hurt by the cabinet's attitude on this matter, and the next time we soldiers are asked to stop terrorists again we will have to think twice about whether it is worth risking our lives to capture killers who will only be released again We the undersigned demand that the State of Israel not release murderers we will only have to risk our lives yet again to capture later in our service,

"We note, that according to the sequence of the deal to release Gilad Shalit, which was revealed today, 450 murderers with blood on their hands will be released, in addition to 550 other prisoners, for the release of one kidnapped soldier."

Underscoring the soldiers sentiments is the promise of more kidnappings by Hamas, the inclusion of terrorists who have killed Israeli soldiers in the deal, and warnings from Israeli security officials who say the deal will likely invite more terror.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Strategic affairs Moshe Yaalon predicted the Shalit deal will result in "tens if not hundreds" of Israeli deaths.


Thank God there is some sanity left in Israel.
