Those 10000 prisoners do not sit there for nothing. They have sentences for terrorism and Israeli jurisdiction is known to be independent from govt. Israel is not punishing just "for electing Hamas". In 2006 the EU commisioner Ferrero-Waldner gave Hamas 3 months to stop its aggressive escalation, but Hamas responded time and again that they do not bother. Remind you: (1) qassams and mortars, (2) annulation of the Oslo accords, (3) renouncing previous recognition of Israel, (4) refusing to alter their charter calling for destruction of their neighbour. More important than "moral high ground" is the ground safe from rockets. The bottom line is: Israel left Gaza already 4,5 years ago and from then every single rocket is one rocket too much.
