This deal almost certainly will result in the deaths of hundreds of innocent civilians. In the Middle Ages, the leading rabbinic scholar of his time, the Maharam of Rotenberg, was kidnapped and held for ransom. He repeatedly refused to agree to a deal for his own release, deeming the amount of money demanded by the baron who kidnapped him to be way too high. He cited the well-known Mishnah which states that one may not redeem hostages for an excessive amount of money. He died in prison. In this case, over a thousand terrorists will be released, with hundreds returning to East Jerusalem and to the "West Bank." In addition to the loss of lives over the next years as a result of this capitulation, such a deal will only encourage the Beduins in the Sinai and others, including groups or individuals around the world, to kidnap an Israeli and hold him or her for ransom. This is a very dangerous precedent.
