    It's not that Israel is releasing 1027 prisoners to bring back home 1 soldier, it's that almost all these prisoners have all been convicted of committing or planning mass murder without any prejudice to age or sex and the Palestinian side values them the most out of the other 5000 still in held Israeli prisons. How many Palestinian prisoners are being released because they have unfair sentences or because they are political prisoners or because they are seen to be wrongly accused? Hardly any I'm sure. No, only the most violent and vile with the longest sentences were on the negotiating list submitted by Hamas to Israel. Had Baruch Goldstein been captured by the Palestinians, i wouldn't have released one Palestinian terrorist to save his arse. So when the deal is concluded and these prisoners who boil with hate and have such total disregard for human life are set free to the world and into Palestinian society, you would have to feel that as a nation, they become just that little more antagonistic and little less civilized. So let's just wait to see on television the big celebrations in Gaza and on the Arab street welcoming back only the most heartless of their people. Good luck to them. Thank God I'm not one of them.
