9-Feb-09: On freeing murderers

Extracted from an editorial in today's Jerusalem Post
We all want Gilad Shalit back home. The question is one of price and consequence. Is it truly in keeping with Jewish compassion to purchase the freedom of one beloved captive at the almost certain cost of unleashing fresh acts of terrorism on our buses, in our cafes and malls, and on our roads - violence that would send many more innocents to their deaths?
At right: the aftermath of the massacre at the Sbarro restaurant, central Jerusalem, 9th August 2001
