    I can understand the Schal family anger and disappointment. Bibi is famous for stonewealling, and it can have dire consequences in many policy areas. However, we cannot condone freeing convicted terrosts that will endanger Israeli lives in the future. It is a cruel calculus that Hamas has embraced, but even trying to lower the rate is to enter their cruel game. The error made was in previously succumbing to pressure to release prisoners for bodies and captives. Bibi is right. Don't ever bargain with terrorists. Should we capitulate and free Gilad, then pay with the lives of others in the future? No. Don't capitulate and bargain with terrorists. Switch off the electric and water in Gaza every day for an hour. Then two. Then three. Then four. and wait for the people of Gaza to have their real needs met.
