Gilad Schalit

     Israeli soldier Gilad Schalit arrived at Tel Nof Air Base last Tuesday. He was the first Israeli soldier returned from captivity in 26 years. He was swapped for, not one Palestinian, not ten Palestinians, not even 100 Palestinians, but 1000 Palestinians. Of these 1,000, hundreds of them were convicted of carrying out attacks on civilians. That's right, Israel has gotten back one prisoner in exchange for the release of hundreds of terrorists. Don't get me wrong, I'm very happy for Schalit and his family, but this whole "This land is my land, this land isn't your land" thing needs to stop.
