    Hello Akiva, How right you are reconciliation should start with prisoners rights as it shows respect for individual and political rights and this can be such a necssary confidence building step. Yes, it's ridiculous getting into classifactions such as" blood on their hands" as both sides are guilty of this. Indeed, the IDF more so with the vital stats having a ratio of 4:1. If one were to push things. Still, I believe it's important to keep in mind during the last year the IDF arrested almost 3,000 Palestinians and I know the number already incarcerated exceeds 11,000. So the numbers at first should be a wash and it will do more to help ease the prison guards load but nevertheless it shouldn't detract from the recognition of rights and confidence building that ought to occur. Thank you for bringing up the Irish model as it has already worked well and should be used as a guiding toll. I would hope. Dutch
