as the Lubavitcher Rebbe said about the Russians
before the fall of the Iron Curtain, the Rebbe was firmly against the public uproar and demonstrations; he said clearly that this defeats our purpose, that the Russians would prefer to release them with quiet negotiations. The Russians Jews later affirmed this.

isn't it amazing how a Jew can use his genius to defeat his own purpose?

One could always use an old tactic of the Philistines and terrorits...
start executing the terrorists, er "hostages" sought in return for Shalit.
Alas, purity of arms is considered as weakness by the enemies of Israel.

May we see a Jewish state of Israel living side by side with a peaceful Palestine.
Dear sir/madam, I am a Somali Muslim and I can swear that I am a great supporter of a Jewish state of Israel with secure borders living side by side in peace with Palestine. I must make myself clear if I am to be honest about peace in the Middle East. The ongoing settlement constructions in Palestinian territories in spite of international cries, will only increase anti-Semitic feelings not only in the Middle East but also around the world. I have read about the horrors of the Holocaust in the history books. I have always cried while watching films showing young Jewish children and innocent Jewish men and women being subjected to gas chambers by the Nazis. Everything that could spread anti-Semitism must be stopped. Such insidents as the horrific attacks on Gaza are one of the major contributary factors towards the increase of anti-Semitism around the the world. THANK YOU

Gilad will be an old man before Israel acts. Israeli intelligence doesn't know where he is and can't go in and get him? Negotiations certainly haven't worked. Gilad is the gold in the Palestinians' mine. They will never allow him to leave.

though I do agree with it. Israel is insane for negotiating with these terrorists. I recall 20 years ago that Bibi Netanyahu presented himself as a worldwide expert in counter-terrorism measures, and his first foremost principle was: No negotiating with terrorists. So what happened?
