Israeli Ambassador to the United States Michael Oren told a breakfast
meeting sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor on Tuesday that the
terrorists for Gilad trade strengthened Israeli society by validating a
social contract between the country and IDF soldiers. Here's an excerpt
from that breakfast.
Let's go to the videotape.
More on Oren's talk here and here.
I believe that as a result of the five-year national debate over the
terrorists for Gilad trade, more Israelis than ever before are more
aware of the issue of recidivism among 'Palestinian' terrorists who were
freed in trades like this one. Should there be major terror attacks
carried out by or planned by terrorists released in this trade (which is
unfortunately likely), I suspect that there will be less support for
such trades in the future.
