Asking questions, bringing balance, confronting predjudice

Getting a perspective on Gilad Shalit

On the day Gilad Shalit was released by Hamas in Gaza, the BBC’s GMT programme interviewed Knesset member Dr Einat Wilf on the imbalance between one soldier released by Hamas for 1,000 prisoners released by Israel! See how she does an excellent job of heading off the idea that somehow Gilad shalit and the Hamas prisoners are morally equivalent in value. There is aworld of difference between a soldier doing his duty defending his country and a man who has been tried in a court of justice and found guilty of multiple murders. Israel has made a big sacrifice to bring Gilad shalit home!
