    I want to say, that we all KNOW you have every right to feel enraged at the release of those who have taken a family member from you. But as Jews (and I'm sorry, I HAVE to say it this way) we MUST remember, Hashem does NOT let any murderer get away with their crime forever. Just because these people are being set free, does NOT mean the rest of their lives they would have gotten away with something. Karma ALWAYS finds its way, no matter what. In the mean time, please remember, we could not bring your loved ones from the dead, for they are already gone. Gilad is ALIVE, and THIS is why this deal was painstakingly made. His blood may not be "any redder' than others who were murdered, but indeed his blood is still ALIVE. Please be happy for him, for being locked up by Hamas for 5 years must have been WORSE at times than being dead. We cannot bring your loved ones back, but we CAN give this young man a second chance at life. Lets remember WHY we are better than our enemies. And our enemies, will have whats coming, Hashem does not let anyone get away with anything. Please remember that...
