“Pal-estinian Authority Chairman Mah-moud Abb-as confirmed Tuesday that a deal had been reached to secure the release of kidnapped IDF soldier Cpl. Gilad Shalit…

Abb-as confirms deal on Shalit continues…

Israel had stipulated that no prisoners with blood on their hands, as well as Tan-zim leader Mar-wan Barg-houti and Ah-mad Sa-dat, the PF-LP head involved in the murder of former tourism minister Reh-avam Ze’evi, should be freed as part of the deal.”

Now if Israel had the death penalty for terrorists, they wouldn’t be in this quandary.
Captured terrorists should be summarily executed.

Then they could be er…”negotiating” corpses.

Here’s the dealio the A-rabs conjured forth.

1,000 terrorists for one soldier.
Quite the bargaining chip, wouldn’t you say.

For the Good of the Many

“While the government of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert denies it, there are reasons to believe that Jerusalem is planning to trade 800-1,000 Pal-estinian prisoners … for Shalit.

The proposed exchange would take place over a period of three months. It’s a deal being brokered by Fat-ah elements close to PA President Mah–moud Abb–as and Egypt, acting as go-betweens for Ha–mas.

There are some 9,000 Palestinian inmates in Israeli prisons…. but most are heartless killers (or their facilitators).”

Olmert is violating his fundamental promise, not to give in to terror.

Israel will not give in to extortion by the Palestinian Authority and the Ham-as government, which are led by murderous terrorist organizations. We will not conduct any negotiations on the release of prisoners. The Palestinian Authority bears full responsibility for the welfare of Gilad Shalit, and for returning him safe and sound to Israel.”

Howza bout one village bombed for every day Gilad is still missing eh?

It appears that Olmert and his band of merry men may have just set the stage for the next round of IDF kidnappings.
After all, Nothing succeeds like success.

Nobody wants Gilad home safe in the arms of his family and loved ones more than I……..but…..what of the next abducted soldier and the next and the next after that?

Are soldiers now morally equivalent to terrorists?
Or is one soldier equivalent to er let’s say….1,000 terrorists?

When will we awaken to the dangers of capitulation on prisoner exchanges or any form of ahem..”negotiation” with terrorists?

My heart and soul break for the parents and loved ones of Gilad.

But…The terrorists…Well they must be cracking up in their suicide vests over this one eh.

    Great post Angel, negotiations with hezbo, etal.. are always about enabling terror.

    Things are bad enough in gaza that a big percentage of the Pali’s in Israeli jails are those that purposely get caught, so that they can receive better treatment & living conditions than they get in gaza.

    Hey, Mike, are you sure about that? Moe loves the business — he never said nothin’ to me



    Yeah — well I’ll make him an offer he can’t refuse…..

    I’m a little confused.. is the guy who’s running Israel’s name Ehud Olmert, or Jimmy Carter? …. Great post Angel!

  6. Van Helsing says:

    Nothing could possibly be stupider than exchanging kidnapped soldiers for terrorists. As a child could figure out, it will only lead to more kidnapping. You are 100% correct: terrorists should not be incarcerated. They need to be killed.

  7. MissingLink says:

    I fully share Van Helsing sentiment.
    No negotiations with terrorists.

  8. Gayle says:

    I absolutely agree that terrorists need to be killed. Negotiating with them only gives them power and incites them to carry on. I feel sorry for anyone who is kidnapped and becomes a victim, and pray for their safety, but at the same time I can honestly say that if I were kidnapped, I wouldn’t want this country to negotiate with my captors for me. I would make my peace with God and hope for the best.

    As a died-in-the-wool Christian who will absolutely not deny the Lord, we all know what my fate would be. Unlike the Islamofascists, I do not have a martyr complex. I simply know right from wrong, like most conservatives do.

    Thanks for the link, Angel.

    This world is becoming a very dangerous and sad place. :(

    I’d like to know what happened to the two IDF soldiers whim were kidnapped by Nasrallah in Lebanon????? What ever happened to them? I have not heard anything about them being released yet I thought that was the deal to egt Isreal to stop the bombing. Isreal stopped bombing… sis Hezbollah not hold up their end of the deal? That would be a real shocker!

    Dear Angel,

    Israel has done this before, but that had been mostly while there had been hopes of some broader settlement. Currently, with Hamas in power, there is no realistic hope for that. The right alternative then would be to round up suspects and keep doing that until the Gilad is released. One more reason why the current centre-left party just cannot be trusted to secure Israel’s safety. Regardless of what one thought of his policies towards the Israeli settlements – Sharon would likely have had the belly needed to handle this – and other – situations, as they need to be.

    And, on top of this our European “allies” are now running to the financial rescue of the Hamas/Fattah government right when it is about to crack.
    How very kind of them.

    Some days one wants to just stay abed and read novels :) .

    Best always,
    O! a hug,

    Thanks y’all for your sweet comments on a very infuriating topic! :)

  12. Middle Class Guy says:

    Israel made two mistakes. One, not enough force in their attacks to force the liberaion of Gilad, and two, they caved into to International presure too soon. On the other hand, the Israelis are notorious for there secret operations and I would not be surprised, if they found and liberated the soldier themselves.

    They have used the negotiating tactic in the past to do the same. I am not predicting, just supposin, ya know.

  13. DL says:

    As self destructive as the Israeli position is – this whole thing exposes the values of the two religions toward life. One is a religion that will murder their own children for Jihad and the other will deal with absurdity and take the short end of the straw for the hope that one of their own may live. Let’s hope that God helps a bit with the balance before it’s over.

  14. Angel says:

    Thanks everyone for the truly inspirational comments! :)

  15. Defiant Infidel says:

    If one kidnapped Israeli is worth 1000 imprisoned terrorists, what have the Palestinians just clearly stated about the relative worth of ONE terrorist?

    …I believe I just flushed the answer.
