Maybe it's unfair to hold an intelligence professional to this test. But in evaluating what's good and what's bad about putting unrepentant murderers back out on the street, he manages to leave one word out of the analysis: justice. Instead, like many Israelis, he throws in "vengeance", and for some that's enough. As the father of a child murdered by a Hamas gang, I have zero interest in vengeance, even if Gazit thinks I want it. I am appalled by how justice, justice, justice is ignored in this discussion. This speaks poorly about our society's maturity and resilience and about many of our public figures.
