The Jerusalem Post article:

Schalit family reunited after five years

Please take time to read this article.

The US was voicing concerns about the release of so many terrorist prisoners in exchange for one Israeli human life.  I admire this statement by Netanyahu.

“The State of Israel is different from its enemies,” Netanyahu said. “Here, we do not celebrate the release of murderers. Here, we do not applaud those who took life. On the contrary, we believe in the sanctity of life. We sanctify life. This is the ancient tradition of the Jewish People.”
