    Luckily we have been blessed by an impressive group of straight-thinking scientists like Prof. Ada Yonath. Would really like to know what Ada Yonath (and of course Akiva Eldar) would do with terrorists intercepted before or after carrying out some atrocity against Israeli citizens. Perhaps to send them on their way with a slap on the back, a wink and a nudge. The idea she expressed of not having any kidnapped soldiers if terrorists aren't kept in prison is beyond ridiculous - there is nothing to stop the Arabs from continuing to try to kidnap Israeli soldiers (or civilians) but, in the absence of prisoners to free, just demand something else, like a chunk of territory, a caseload of money. she should stick to chemistry. And not every ridiculously fatuous statement needs to be adopted by those who see themselves as pundits and all-knowing.
