    I agree completely with the first part of the argument. Gilad Shalit is a prisoner of war, and the state Had and Has an obligation to liberate him. However he is not treated as a prisoner of war. No red cross, no contact, nothimg. Also what kind of prisoner exchange is this. A thousand for One. Things are not as simple as you portray them. It seems to me that there should be One prisoner of War for One prisoner of War. Esther.
