Hamas Sees Shalit Deal as Victory,Vows More Kidnapping
While there are mixed feelings in Israel about the prisoner exchange deal to release Gilad Shalit--setting free over 1000 Palestinian prisoners -- Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal proclaimed the deal "a great victory" and already, a spokesman for Izzadin Kassam, the armed wing of Hamas, announced that Shalit "will not be the last soldier kidnapped by Hamas as long as Israel keeps Palestinian prisoners detained."
Meanwhile Israel at least partially acceded to Hamas' demand that it not target any of the realeased prisoners. Israel agreed not to target anyone unless they are involved in new terror attacks.
Among the terrorists said to be released are those involved with the planning and execution of the Sbarro attack, the Dolphinarium disco attack, the Passover massacre at the Park Hotel, the Moment Cafe attack, Ramallah lynching, among others.
While bereaved families of the terror victims are appalled and outraged, and more and more are petitioning the court not to release these unrepetant terrorists, still others are fighting against the petition not to release the prisoners.

Nothing like rewarding terrorism. Maybe the families of the people murdered by these barbarians can pick 'em off as they walk out of jail, claim "Revenge," as Pallys always do, and tell Hamas that the next soldier it captures will result in the total elimination of their leaders.
Israel gets slammed for just being Israel. G-d forbid that they also killing terrorists while the world stands by and watches Muslims slaughter Christians.
Israel cannot have peace without victory.
