    Why should Israel release anyone? How long does Israel have to continue defending itself against terrorists and terrorist States whose stated mission is to destroy and eradicate the Jewish race? For how many decades does this need to fester? Each and every time Israel, the United States or any other country releases prisoners (Terrorists), no matter their crime, gender or age, they are rewarded with more terrorist attacks against their people and/or military forces. These people are trained from early childhood to hate and kill and are fanatical in their perseverance. I say no to any swap and yes to the complete eradication of all terrorists and terrorist organizations; even those so-called ?freely elected? members of terrorist groups who serve in the governments of Lebanon, Syria, Iran, the Palestinians and others. Electing terrorists to positions of power is nothing short of a perversion of the very foundations of freedom and liberty. If this action truly represents the ?will? of the people, then it is the ?people? who are at fault and they must accept the consequences of their actions. There will never be peace in the Middle East so long as terrorists are allowed to dictate conditions for co-existence and are allowed to wreak havoc and despair at will. Deploying international forces to this region in a long term capacity to ?keep the peace? or ?observe? is not a solution either. How can any nation or region, live in peace and the people prosper when the military forces of other lands have to be used for more than a couple of months or years to ensure this? How do you prosper with this threat of violence at your doorstep day after day, year after year? For decades, these terrorist factions have been given opportunity after opportunity for peace and have rejected or violated every agreement ever reached. Elimination of the cause of conflict is the only solution to lasting peaceful coexistence. Israel, with the help of the rest of the world must continue its war against these terrorists and eradicate this threat to their existence once and for all.
