Israeli Soldier Gilad Shalit Released After Being Held Hostage For 5 Years By Islamic Terrorists

In return, Israel is freeing over 1,000 Islamic terrorists.

Shalit, now 25, was 19 years old when he was seized by Hamas militants who had tunneled under the border between Gaza and Israel. The campaign to free him drew support from across Israel, despite anguish over the decision to release of hundreds of Palestinians convicted of planning or carrying out attacks against Israeli civilians.

“Gilad Shalit has returned to his country, his homeland and his family,” Brig. Gen. Yoav Mordechai, an Israeli army spokesman, said after the young soldier’s release. “For over five years we have been . . . with Gilad Shalit. Today, Gilad Shalit is with us.”

Shalit was taken by Hamas officials from Gaza into Egypt, then turned over to Israeli officials and taken across the border. He was examined by doctors and given a chance to speak to relatives by telephone; at some point, he changed out of the plaid shirt he had been wearing and into an Israeli army uniform, which hung loosely on his thin frame.

Palestinians immediately began doing what they do best...reminding the world that their sick culture should never be allowed to have a real state.

Allow me to offer a counter proposal...how about some Hellfire missiles aimed at the recently released Islamic terrorists instead?

Shalit also appeared "voluntarily" on Egyptian state TV. If a Gitmo detainee were ever humiliated in that way the world would be outraged and the fabled "Muslim street" would explode. But hey, he's just a soldier from the "Zionist entity" so who cares, right?

Added: Just who the Israelis are letting go and what it will mean for them in the future.
