Below are links to three articles about the deal that was made to bring Gilad Shalit home after being held prisoner by Hamas for over 5 years.
The first article is a powerful piece by a mother of a 14 year old who was killed in a terrorist ambush 10 years ago. This article argues that the price for Gilad’s release was too high.
The second article is also a powerful piece that presents the view that as Jews we value life and we had to do everything possible to bring Gilad home.
The third article is a poignant description of what has happened and why this should not be called a prisoner exchange.
