    All those who oppose the swap have infinite reasons based on past experience, and infinite pain and suffering to base their anger and their so painful impotence at seeing the murderers of their loved ones set free. And Noam Schalit isn't guilty for it. Hamas is. Noam Schalit is doing what you yourself would do after his equally infinite ordeal. to see that nothing comes in the way at the last minute to embrace his son, who probably is mentally and emotionally crippled for life by five and a half years of isolation and infinite torment. All this is Hamas' work. We all wanted to have "our" son Gilad, back. He's still alive, we owe it to the family, to our IDF, to Israel, to ourselves. I understand that emotions run high now, and it's so understandable. But Israelis blaming each other due to raw emotions is absurd.
