    The attitude Bibi, Barak and even Olmert have taken so far has been a responsible one. Everybody wants Gilad home but Bibi understands that everyman has a price beyond which we will not pay and the price Hamas is demanding is to high. Bibi has to consider security .. do we want more terrorists running around who are going to murder Israelis. Last time he was PM Bibi released the man who later went onto organize the 2002 Park Hotel massacre. He was recaptured but he is on Hamas list amongst others who are more than willing to start blowing up hotels and busses again. How will these supporters of Gilad feel if because of their pressure Bibi releases a killed who later goes onto murder a member of their family? Will they blame Bibi or themselves for their irrisponsible attitude. Pay Hamas price and we will get Gilad back today but because kidnapings so profitable one of their sons might be taken tomorrow, how will they feel then if their are the parents of the next Gilad? Governments must be responsible in their policy making not emotional. The responsible thing is to tell Hamas their price is to high and there re no deals until the price comes down. Marches like this only play into the hands of Hamas who say look Israels are demanding you pay our price so pay up. I am sure there arte 10,000+ out there who want Bibi to keep acting responsibly but they can't go out and march because they will be looked on as some kind of traitor and nobody will want anything to do with them so only 1 side is able to get their feelings across. Let the elected government deal with this not an emotional Shalit family and their supporters.
