This article gives only weak arguments for a unilateral release of prisoners: comparison with Ireland although situations are very different. Arabs are more than 1 Mio in the Jewish part of Palestine and there are few Jews in the Arab part (West Bank/Gaza).

As all Arab countries are under dictatorship and terror we know what will be the future if we follow the writer.
