To Free Gilad Schalit
Dr. Aaron Lerner
Date: 16 July 2008
"Next time it will be different", a nation swears as the caskets of Goldwasser and Regev are broadcast on television in the immoral, grotesque and humiliating bodies for terrorist deal.
A deal that sends the message to Israel's enemies not to kidnap more Israelis - but instead to grab and kill more Israelis.
Well. The "next time" is already now.
And so. Instead of pondering how many murderers the Jewish State should hand over to the terrorist Hamas to gain the release of Gilad Schalit, the State of Israel must return to its senses and do what a normal state that truly values the lives of its citizens does:
Kill, capture, torture (aka "interrogate"), and destroy - to free Gilad Schalit.
We don't know the exact location of Schalit but we know he is in the narrow Gaza Strip.
And we know exactly the chain of command that is holding him captive.
Like any nation that values its citizens.
That does not accept its citizens being taken hostage.
Israel should launch now a bloody and violent invasion of the Gaza Strip in search of Gilad Schalit.
Every camp, office, warehouse, apartment - basically any place; every official, officer, gunmen, etc. associated with the organizations that hold Schalit (and that includes first and foremost Hamas) is a target.
If there is resistance then the IDF will react like the army of any country that values the lives of its citizens and give priority to the lives of the soldiers engaged in the operation over the lives of those either endangering its soldier or intentionally providing a human shield to those enemy forces.
Hamas leadership should find themselves literally facing the decision of their lives: unconditionally release Schalit or be responsible for the utter destruction of Hamas and their own collective one way visit to Paradise.
Yes. "Next time" is now.
And only a return to a strong and respectful response now to the ongoing challenge presented by the holding of Gilad Schalit by Hamas can restore the deterrence that Israel so critically requires for its survival.
