Prisoner Exchange

Well known author and social critic Yossi Klein Halevi comments in Tablet magazine on his personal feelings as someone who opposed the prisoner exchange deal for Gilad Shalit.

A timeline publish by Haaretz which documents the significant moments in the 1,940 days between Gilad Shalit's capture and his release.

Following cries from terror victim widows willing to have their loved ones' killers released in exchange for Gilad Shalit, Terror Victims Association head Zeev Rapp, who also lost his daughter to terror, furiously opposes such a notion.

The killer of Baruch Mizrahi, the senior Israeli police officer killed in a Passover eve terror attack near Hebron, was a Palestinian released in the prisoner exchange deal which saw Gilad Shalit freed in return for 1,027 Palestinian prisoners.
