Every Jewish life is important

I beleive that every life issacred and important. But when israel releases a terrorist, he will cause a greater loss than what is gotten by the exchange. If we are at war with these terrorists, than we have to speak their language. I beleive ,howaver I don't aprove, israel should start executing one by one the terrorists they get, till they give back the captured israelies.

How many Israelis' need to be kidnapped, held for months,years,tortured,killed, and then released in exchange for how many prisoners? What an encouragement for the enemy to continue. If you are in school and a bully harrasses you and you do nothing, what happens? It gets worse. Show them your strength and they back off. Oh, and Sofer,(# 13) an eye for an eye was monetary, not literal.

Liked the video

I thought the video was pretty funny, if anyone cares about that. As far as trading - I'm the mother of a soldier. If my son was being held by the enemy, I would do anything to get him home. Maybe not morally correct, but I would want him back no matter what.

"An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth......."

I agree with John,(9)......the designated prisoners to have been traded....'' When President Carter caved to the terrorists demands in Iran, back in 79...they became more agressive and ended up making Carter and the west look weak to the Muslim world. It will be hard..but...necessary. The government in power at this point...does not have the stomach to be strong. I pray for God to strengthen the new power in Israel....

John W/ "the correct is" has the very best outlook on exchanges, but this not the way of political correctness and apeasment that has been established with this current government and certainly not in agreement with Abu Masen
