    Irrespective of the degree of danger associated with the release of these terrorist/political prisoners, Gideon Levy does not have to bear any responsibility for the outcome. But the Israeli government certainly does. Whilst the situation is arguably less that optimal, the prisoners, unlike their Israeli victims, are alive and well, and will be released, as per their sentence within the context of law as it exists within the context of the prevailing circumstances. Those circumstances being the enemies peace plan of the extermination and/or expulsion of all Jews in the region, and the elimination of the state of Israel. Gideon levy could be given the benefit of the doubt, so long as Israelis are prepared to tolerate the principles of Hamid Karzai, as cited by Malalai Joya when an Afghan complained that his entire family had been murdered by a militia: You're a young man. Have more babies.
