The Israeli people should have a say before someone decides to pardon and release the murderers of their loved ones from prison. The government should represent the people, I doubt in this case they did. This action just created a huge boost in incentive to kidnap israeli soldiers. Sent back a large amount of experienced terrorists to go and kill more citizens. It also sent back a huge boost in moral to terror organizations and showed them that killing people is not just ok, but it's the right way to go. All of this just to take some political heat off the economic controversies surrounding this government such as the massive consumer protests and the doctor strikes. I am very happy to see Gilad Shalit home, and I wish the best for him and his family. However, I mourn for the families of future victims.
