We need to look at the big picture, and that is a policy regarding dealing with terrorists, if you surrender to their demands they will keep attacking you, you can not negotiate with terrorists, period. The palestinians have to learn that kidnaping an israeli soldier will be dealth with as strict as possible, israel will not let their soldiers be kidnapped by terrorists and stand by idle, i hope that Gilad Shalit is returned home very soon and in good health, however, i don't think that the government is doing all that its doing just to save his life, instead they do it to send a strong message to the terrorists that kidnapping a soldier will not work and israel will never negotiate with terrorists. The international community has an obligation to force syria and iran to stop supporting terrorists of any kind and israel has the right and obligation to arrest them whereever whenever.
