Emotions are high but the Palestinians don't understand the real prize they are paying for this prisoner swap. The whole Shalit deal is only part of a clever political game. You will see: once the release of prisoners is completed, Israel will use this as an example to show to the world that negotiations with Israel do lead to solutions and this will strengthen their position against the Palestini an bid at the UN significantly, as they claim that only negotiations can lead to peace. So for Israel this deal is a clever move with a very good timing! But as for the Palestinians, I know it sounds weird (as we only see the numbers 1027 for 1!), but for them unfortunately this is a very bad bargain in the long run.
