Why endanger more people by releasing failed terrorists who may try again? I don't get it. Its only a video. This is a form of 'showing off' which is being done in order to boost the egos of those involved. Your concern over Shalit does not make you more human than the Palestinians who are seeking the release of their people held in Israeli prisons. In my mind it makes you less human because you are risking more casualties in order to placate assuage your own egos.
