    I support the calls for Hamas to free Shalit, even thousand of kidnapped Palestinians. Yes, Shalit is kinapped and is a prisoner of war as a soldier. Israel on the other hand kidnapped tens of thousands of Palestinians from their homes. These are not terrorists, but people who resists the occupation. The French did it during the Nazi Occupation and I am sure the Jews did not call them terrorists, but resistence fighter. Perhaps this will be one of the confidence building measures both Israelis and Palestinians need. Israel should forget about Dahlan and Abed Rabbou and their thugs and deal with people who are not asking money for every thing they do. PA security organizations proved to be too corrupt and too incompetent and $82 millions from the US will not change that fact. Al-Aza'ar will always be Az'ar.
