    The repurcussions of this monstrously bad decision by netanyahu will reverberate for years. So that barak and netanyahu can pose in front of the cameras for a photo op - instead of having the guts and character to have either 1) ordered a mission to free schalit 2) executed one hamas leader after another until he was freed they chose this lunacy. How many future israelis will be killed by terrorists who see this as a major sign of capitulation to terror, and are emboldened by it? Even worse, how many will be killed in attacks conducted by these same released terrorists? Noam schalit is an idiot, he is trading hundreds, if not thousands, of other israeli lives for his one son - what kind of characterless fool would accept such a move? The israeli government should never have approved this abomination, past ones have never led to an improved security situation for israel. Impeach netanyahu and call for new elections.
