#2 Bad precedent was not running all of them out in 48 and again in 67. Everything else is details.

#5 there is a decent chance that the 4 were caught because of intel provided by one of the other releasees- that has happened in the past

#6 1,027 terrorists were freed in exchange for Shalit. Before their release the terrorists were asked to sign forms promising not to engage in terrorism in the future.
Signed forms (hand writing recognition). Read the form aloud in your native tongue...just to make certain you understand the conditions prior to signing (voice recognition recorded). Photos, mail forwarding addresses, proper haircut (DNA samples). A lift to your old neighborhood. Free cellie. That about wraps it up Mo, please keep in touch.

#7 They signed the forms but they were not on UN stationary.
Israel should return the terrorists next time from 35000 ft with the form they signed as their parachute.

#8 I wish, just once, they'd actually do that. Drop them from 15,000 ft and say they returned a terrorist. They condemnation would be huge, but not anymore than usual. They'd probably get more pats on the back, behind the scene, than anything else. And it would give the terrorists something to think of. You don't die and get captured, you get X amount of time to pray till you go SPLAT.
