I don't agree to the swap. Releasing hundreds of murderers would send the message that they got what they wanted, that abducting soldiers works, and that terrorists can keep with their acts knowing there's a chance they'll be freed. Moreover Hamas will gain legitimacy, more followers and funding. While this is a high morale value we Israelis have, one that might baffle western commanders of how much we're willing to give for the life of one of us, I feel we shouldn't do it. A military solution, or a political one, or both, will have to suffice.
