This is EXACTLY why you don’t make deals with terrorists.
You have to feel for the families involved, but the lessone Hezbollah has gotten from this is “kidnapping works”. The families of the next victims are going to have hard questions for the government of Israel.
I’ve yet to find anyone explain why Sharon did this.
Making a deal with terrorists is like asking Michael Jackson to watch the baby for a weekend. A terrible and stupid idea no matter how you look at it.
What a pity that Sharon felt he had to suck up to the PC world at large. This will only burn them.
Whatever his reasons for doing his – be they right or wrong, I wouldn’t have thought sucking up to the PC world would figure among them. It’s not really Mr Sharons style. Reading the article, if there are any more kidnappings, I don’t think Sharon is planning more deals.
I have no idea why Sharon is doing this, but given his record, position and knowledge, don’t you feel inclined to instinctively trust him ?

Not really. He’s too inclined to bow to pressure.
I may hope they’ve implanted some sort of spy hardware in every one of those released. But I doubt it. They’ll end up having to round up most of them again. After some more Israelis are murdered.
Kathy, you nail it! Palees are desperate now, and becoming more so by the day (see denBeste’s excellent article re The Fence), and are about to implode in an orgy of self-immolation and internecine warfare…
The Israelis are on a good track right now, and I wish for them only the best.

Sharps, that’s why Sharon let them go. It makes him appear reasonable or willing to deal, and it puts these terrs right back where they can be killed… by the IDF or by their own savagery.
