I spent some time researching multiple names on this list. At some point I quit because I just became too disgusted at what I found. Over and over the information I found from a whole long list of websites was that the charges were completely overblown, or applied to minors as if they were adults, charges were never filed, or the prisoners were due to be released in a few weeks or months anyways. Overall, it is beginning to look to me like Israel has been conducting kangaroo courts with the SOLE purpose of try to justify taking their own hostages to hold for Shalit's release. Everyone here seems to be concerned about killers being let loose, but what I've researched doesn't match up with that at all. I challenge each person here who is shaking in their boots and spreading fear over these prisoners being released, to go out and each research at least 3-4 of the folks on this list yourself. Then, and only then, come back and explain why you are so afraid of their release.
