I do not agree with his take on the occupation. As we all know the Arab/Palestinians were attacking and killing Israelis long before 1967 and the "OCCUPATION". Where I do agree with Mr. Levy is that most if not all of the prisoners will want to go back to their lives and families without getting re-involved with terror. Even if necessary to free up to 1000 prisoners ...this alone will be a tremendous cost savings. As well the Palestinians have had their share of violence and Cast Lead put a real damper on their taste for more.
