bibi deliberated over whether to release the tape, knowing it would increase pressure on him to make concessions. which means Gilads freedom will result in more terrorists at large and ultimately more Jewish deaths. who can make that decision justly? the media too has become a partisan, using the story to increase circulation and hits, and thus is acting in a self serving immoral way. are you willing to sacrifice a family member in the future for Gilad's release now? that's the real equation. I don't blame Naom Shalit, but I do hold the government and public and media to behave more thoughtfully. all life is sacred, not just Gilads.
