    Gilad Shalit is a political prisoner. He was abducted from Israeli territory not because he planned or executed suicide bombings. He was kidnaped because he wore an military uniform. No legal entity in Gaza convicted Gilad of any crime... Gilad's hands are not soaked in Palestinian blood. His captivity is a way for Hamas to punish the Israelis... collectively. Let's call it like it really is... there's no need to overlook the real truth. Yes... there's a need to resolve the conflict. But exchanging Palestinians convicted of crimes against civilians for a political prisoner like Gilad Shalit... makes a mockery of every legal process going forward.
