It is a hard truth but Israel cannot release hundreds of terrorists for one person. For Hamas this is all they have. One kidnapped victim. In Golda Miers day everyone one who is accountable would be hunted down and killed. If you let these swine get away with it next time they will be empowered to do more and more harm.Shalit is as good as dead. He will never walk out. It is a bitter pill to swallow but Israel you need to take action on these animals. Do not let it be said that this generation in Israel is soft.I do not expect this to be published , and my view may be extreme. But Israel is surrounded by people who would like to harm them.
