Noam Shalit has wisely distinguished his son as a kindnapped hostage compared to the Palestinian terrorists demonstrators have equated him to. This is a profound insult to Gilad. If released these terrorists will perform more violent acts and encourage others to do the same, thus multiplying their effect. We can sympathize with the Shalits, but does anyone have a right to say one life is worth risking countless others for? A cruel dilemma, but Israel must stand firm for the sake of everyone.
