Israel sweeps through Palestinian areas and makes arrests all the time. They throw Palestinians into jails and give them no legal rights. This would continue even if some of the prisoners were exchanged by Israel. In no time, the jails would be full again. The Palestinians have no hope and no recourse if their loved ones are arrested by Israel. That's just the way it is for them. That's not the way it is for Noam Shalit. His son is in prison, but Netanyahu has the key. The Palestinian people can not help Shalit, even if they had a desire to do so.
