The lives of the victims of Arab terror were stolen from their families simply because they lived and were Jews in Israel. And in the cases of the Keinan, Peled, Alon and Eisenman families, as in thousands of others, the murderers were the direct and indirect beneficiaries of terrorists-for-hostages swaps like the deal that Yonatan Netanyahu's brother, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, made this week with Hamas to secure the release of Gilad Schalit.
The deal that Netanyahu has agreed to is signed with the blood of the past victims and future victims of the terrorists he is letting go. No amount of rationalization by Netanyahu, his cheerleaders in the demented mass media, and by the defeatist, apparently incompetent heads of the Shin Bet, Mossad and IDF can dent the facts.
IT IS a statistical certainty that the release of 1,027 terrorists for Schalit will lead to the murder of untold numbers of Israelis. It has happened every single time that these blood ransoms have been paid. It will happen now.
What makes Gilad Shalit more valuable than the victims of Arab terrorism pictured in the montage above?
The Arab terrorist organizations have already pledged to kidnap more IDF soldiers, especially since the terrorists achieved most of their goals at very little cost or effort.
This new "deal" will only endanger Israel, its civilians and soldiers. Gilad Shalit will be sent home, but that doesn't promise his future safety, nor that of his family, neighbors or any Israeli or Jew in the world.
