I too feel horribly sorry for those who see their loved one's murderers freed, but, why add to that the grief of the Shalit family? Gilad is not to blame or to become a scapegoat. We are retrieving one life which is already more than many had hoped for. Also, what makes anyone think that those freed savages will live long and happily everafter? I bet my dog that the army will do the one and only right thing, which is for the Mistaravim units to take out the released prisoners one by one and serve justice after all. The side of justice, the side of the victim(s) (Gilad, terror victims), doesn't owe the side of evil to hold up their side of the deal for longer than it takes to get what we wanted. It would be no more than just and reasonable to execute the prisoners once Gilad is secured, in a deniable way.
