Israeli Gilad Schalit released
This is what the LORD says who created you, O Jacob, (Israel).
Fear not, for I have redeemed you, I have summoned you by name, you are mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you,
and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
I give Egypt for your ransom, Cush and Seba in your stead.
Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you,
I will give men in exchange for you, and people in exchange for your life.

Gilad Shalit arrives in Israel
October 18, 2011 Tuesday
Gilad Shalit released after 5 years in captivity.
He is back in Israel alive, walking, but very thin and men hold both his hands. I suspect he has been beaten, only God knows how often.
Egyptian TV showed the Israeli soldier walking between his Hamas captors and the Egyptian officers who took charge of him.
Shalit is pale, thin and tense. What he missed most was human contact. He was kept isolated.
Israel released Palestinian terrorists to Gaza, Egypt and the West Bank.
50 of the worst were deported to Syria, Jordan, Turkey and Qatar.
Turkey needs more terrorists for the war on Israel.
Egyptian officers made sure Israel adhered to deal with Hamas.

Palestinian prisoners freed
Kidnapping Israelis is rewarding
Israel needs to quickly execute all convicted of murder.
October 19, 2011
More Israelis will be kidnapped and killed because of this deal to release Gilad Schalit.
Hamas is being rewarded for their terror, and encouraged to kidnap more Israelis.
US objected to release of some Palestinian killers
Hamas terrorists can deliver, Abbas cant .. what does that do to the 'peace' talks?
The US State Department spokesman Mark Toner disclosed that the United States had voiced concerns to Israel over some of the Palestinians freed as part of a deal for release of Gilad Shalit.
Israel freed 477 Palestinian terrorists, including 230 multiple murderers serving several life sentences.
Gilad's captivity was harsh
his father said: "I understand that the media wants to see him, but he needs time. He's in no condition… he just can't meet so many people at once."
Pressed harder, Shalit senior reminded reporters that
"Gilad is still a soldier and must follow the IDF Spokesperson’s orders. He is in no condition for a press conference."
Moscow welcomes HELLzballah
October 22, 2011
Moscow welcomed a delegation of Lebanese Hizballah terrorists for 3 day visit.
Russia used Israels negotiations with Hamas for the release of Gilad Shalit to justify its continuing support for Syrian President Bashar Assad and opening the door to other terrorists.
The Kremlin shows it has its own take on the deal struck between Israel and the Palestinian Hamas.
Israel's missing red lines
With each concession Israel’s leaders are on a dangerous road which put Israel in a dangerous position
concerning her existence. The Lord is the only hope for Israel, and we who are called by His name
must continue to be watchmen on the walls of Jerusalem crying out in prayer Lord,
save Your people Israel!
Israeli leaders have withdrawn from most of our red lines
Long before the Shalit deal, Israel should have declared the Israeli military will respond immediately to any future kidnapping.
They should have said Israel will not supply any food, electricity, medical supplies or other essential items to Gaza
in the event of a future kidnapping emanating from there.
But Israel didnt say that, there is a much larger problem - Israel has no red lines.
Red lines which have vanished
Israel's red line on a united Jerusalem and control of the Temple Mount have also vanished.
Israel's red line of how much Arab hostility it will absorb before responding has changed dramatically.
Israel's leaders once declared that it does not negotiate with terrorists.
Then - Israel does not release prisoners with blood on their hands.
Israel agreed that the Golan Heights was not negotiable because of its strategic importance to Israel.
However, leaders began saying that Israel can survive without the Golan. Thus another Israeli red line vanished.
