Netanyahu extends peace tactics to Shalit

In his Sunday peace speech, Netanyahu carefully rejected the American peace efforts while maintaining his image as a peace-loving fellow. He would gladly accept a Palestinian state, albeit on terms which the Palestinians would never agree to.

Now he is trying a similar tactic to handle the Shalit problem. Netanyahu has offered to release 1,750 Palestinian security prisoners in exchange for the Israeli corporal—up from the 1,000–1,500 for which Hamas had asked before—but none of the murderers.

Netanyahu tactic is again immoral. It took so much risk to Jewish lives to arrest even these 1,750 minor offenders that swapping them for a single corporal denigrates the soldiers who conducted the arrest raids.
