The people from Gaza that Israel holds were kidnapped (your term) from inside Gaza. Why aren't they released without preconditions? Israel holds thousands hostage, admitted as hostages by the IDF in Israeli courts. Make a trade. Either both Shalit and all those thousands are kidnap victims or they are all POWs. Make a choice and make a trade. Your double standards and hypocrisy are showing.
