Gilad Shalit for 1.5 million Palestinians, deal?

Today marks one year since Gilad Shalit, an Israeli soldier was captured at the Gaza-Israel border from a tank in his military outpost. Since that day he may have been held captive in a house, a room, a cellar, a cave, ultimately he is in a prison, his own personal cage somewhere. Palestinians also are held in a cage.

Sunday an Israeli Minister had the gall to propose the exchange of the life of one Israeli for the lives of 1.5 million Palestinians.

The world is not interested in a true prisoner exchange. Here is just one further example of life within the cage of Gaza.
