Shalit should be freed no matter how high the cost. Palestinians and Israelis must learn to accept the humanity of the other as equal. That pertains to prisoners who are not murderers, rapists, or other truly dangerous criminals. In those cases it must be on a case by case basis when they can be paroled. For the sake of this trade some of those norms may need to be challenged. Shalit is all of our sons and daughters who serve and served in the IDF including mine. If it was my child being held I would go to the ends of the earth to free him and as Jews that's what we need to do for Gilad. I am sure many Palestinians feel exactly the same way about their sons and daughters in Israeli prisons. We should meet as equals and do the right thing for once.
