Reader comment on item: Gilad Shalit and Doing Business with Terrorists

I agree with everything you have stated. It seems there had to have been another way to bring Gilad home without releasing those who have already caused so much trauma, suffering, and loss, and who will most likely cause more of the same. Those of us who take this position are not discompasionate toward Gilad and his family. We certainly feel grief for them. We just have insight and are able to look at the potential and probable consequences of releasing one, two, three, 1,027, or any number of terrorists.
