Proof again... Less is more
My friend Ben Chorin nails it in fewer words than I normally use paragraphs.

It sounds like he disagrees with your ridiculous assertion that "A million terrorists behind bars won't... prevent further terror deaths." If I understand correctly the "100 quiet funerals" are those of future terror victims who will be murdered by the terrorists released from prison.
He is (correctly) pointing out the insanity of this deal - the government is sacrificing many to rescue one. Gilad Shalit took an oath to give his life in order to protect the security of the citizens of Israel. What is going to happen now is that dozens, if not hundreds, of citizens will be giving their lives to protect him.
Mass psychosis is the only way I can describe the public support for this deal.

did you guys remember to hand out the flu viruses and subcutaneous GPS tracking devices to the prisoners before releasing them into the wild?

Or as Bibi warned them if they return to terror "Damam be'rosham". I really hope they are somehow tracked and eliminated quickly and quietly if they return to terror - no more jail for them!

How exactly is it nailing it, when the statement seems to fly in the face of the general sentiment you've been expressing here lately (with which I personally agree much more)?
