    "Israel on the other hand kidnapped tens of thousands of Palestinians from their homes. These are not terrorists, but people who resists the occupation." I'm just curious, do you really believe the IDF says "hey, lets take out the family at that house, and bring them to our jails" while wasting resources and risking It's soldiers to get them, or do you simply do not tag murdering civilians as terrorism, but as a "justified act of resistance" ? These terrorists are in prison for involvement in terrorism, directly or indirectly. I do not support freeing those who were directly involved with terrorist activity (I.E blood on their hands) for the release of Shalit, that would only send a clear message that kidnapping soldiers works as well as freeing hundreds of terrorists that would kill more Israelis, for the sake of one person. I do agree that we should stop taking more prisoners, we should simply kill them and save all the headache and money of keeping them.
