1. Thats right don't give a hoot about the terror victims
Rod ,   Fargo N.Dakota   (10.18.11)
Show a little magnanimity toward the families of the victims.This whole family is about me me me.Your son was not a hero he was captured on Israeli soil probably asleep during guard duty.He's no Ron Arad who was captured while on a mission in enemy territory.Show some humility you and your family
2. #1 And you should show some sensitivity
Cynthia ,   USA   (10.18.11)
Of course the Shalits are focused on their son. That doesn't mean they don't care about the other families.
3. I'm speechless, too
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (10.18.11)
I cannot believe that we are trading 1,027 terrorist murderers for a corporal who fell asleep on duty. Wow.
4. Waiting for my grandson
Joe ,   uk   (10.18.11)
it is understandable why you are happy but what will say when some of the prisoners will commit terror and kill people again
5. To: Cynthia at No. 2

I do not often disagree with you, dear, but have you ever wondered why the families of the soldiers killed when Shalit was kidnapped have never spoken up in support of Shalit?

I live in Israel ,   you dont.   (10.18.11)
I think its time you showed us your proof that Gilad Shalit was asleep on duty. Your bitterness is getting the better of you.Today Gilad Shalit is a free man. Now you need to eat your words as you were the one who swore he would never be set free.
7. #5 I do understand Sarah
Cynthia ,   USA   (10.18.11)
But I'm also certain if Gilad was your son, you would have walked the earth just like the Shalits until he was released. From the bottom of my heart, I welcome Gilad home.

I am sick and tired with all the commentators on this forum who DON'T live here and are only minding OUR business. YOu in the USA, the Uk and elsewhere we don't ned your comments. I HAVE LOST a very dear close member of my family to terror and I AM for a free gilad.
9. Freeing Gilad the right thing to do
Kiwijew ,   Auckland NZ   (10.18.11)
The parents of terror victims would have done the same thing if their child had been kidnapped rather than killed. Sadly for them, they can't do anything to bring their children back, but the Shalits could. Israel will handle 1027 terrorists- it deals daily with millions of them! One human being for 1027 donkeys? A fair swop.

Sorry for your loss Ilana & Kudos to you. I, too, am for ''free Gilad''
11. Gilad's grandfather
maureen kilroy ,   quincy usa   (10.19.11)
Beautiful article. I am glad you have your wish.
12. to 8, 10 and all the Gilad groupies
Joe ,   Ruanda   (10.19.11)
Do not complain when the next big terror wave hits Israel. In the meantime, grow a spine and you will really deserve a country.
13. Dear Zvi,
Zoe ,   LA/Rishon   (10.20.11)
You have a beautiful and courageous family. Best wishes to all of you!.
