... Hezbollah or one of the Pal terror groups on its soil have free reign and possibly provoke Israel into engaging it again? Hopefully, this won't happen for the most part but there are so many external anti-Israeli forces who continue to jockey for a position along one of Israel's borders where they can press their terror attacks and keep Israel bleeding, as in the case of Syria and Iran. After all this pressure, Hezbollah still insists on a very disproportionate prisoner exchange with Israel and takes advantage of its great concern for its captured or killed soldiers in a very cynically and callous manner. Hezbollah will demand the release of a cold-blooded murderer like Kantar because they see his actions as legitimate against a country that they've already de-humanized, and it's always easier to kill someone once they've been de-humanized, as the killer's conscience has by then been seared. Israel has learned from this confrontation and will be stronger for the next.
