Is the misery of the Shalit family any greater than that of any israeli family losing a member to a Palestinian rocket? I feel no greater consolation for the Shalits. Israel is at war with the Palestinians. Shalit is a member of the IDF. He would have killed or captured the Palestinians who captured him if he had the chance or was alert enough. Why don't the Shalits just shut up? They are being used by the Palestinians.
