In fact I did see a report in mainstream media containing the name and photo of a just-released Palestinian prisoner, already in Damascus, looking stout, healthy, well-fed, celebrating "victory" and promising increased violence against Israel with hamas leader Khaled Meschal. Contrast his conditionwith that of Shalit - thin, pale, looking like he will need dental work. Compare the Israeli public reaction "Thank God he's home" - with the threats of violence and more kidnappings from the other side. If you don't get it, it's because you don't want to.
