For every time the Red Cross visits Shalit, Israel can allow 10 Gazans to get free treatment in Israel for any disease. But until Shalit is granted such visits, Israel should allow not a single person in or out of Gaza, for any reason whatsoever. As for the border fence: several maps I've seen in Haaretz- provided by leftist, pro-Palestinian, and usually European sources- clearly show that the fence follows the pre-1967 border almost everywhere except around Jerusalem. The amount of West Bank land on the "wrong" side of the fence is miniscule. Actually, it's quite ridiculous how much land Israel simply GAVE AWAY to the Palestinians for free- 100% of Gaza and almost the entire West Bank. And yet the Pals still want more!
