But the prime minister of Israel and his political cabinet are responsible for weighing the long-range situation. How many Jews will be murdered by the freed terrorists, or by those Arabs, who will understand that even if they commit acts of terror they will be freed when their friends kidnap another Jew? It is sad that the Israeli Government is considering freeing terrorists with Jewish blood on their hands. How many will suffer because of this capitulation?
May the coming Chanukah holiday bring another miracle in freeing Gilad Shalit without having to free even one terrorist, and may the light of peace come to our country and to the world.
