That's how I feel about the prisoner exchange today. We got the bodies of two heroes of Israel. They got a brutal murderer. And so much more.
Last night before I went to sleep, I prayed for a miracle. If only our soldiers were alive. I knew the chances were slim, but as I said, I prayed for a miracle.
In spite of the title of this post, I believe Israel is strong. We are capable. But our government is afraid of the army's strength, which is why we lost Lebanon II. Treppenwitz and Seraphic Secret describe this so much better than I ever could.
I am glad the Goldwasser and Regev families will be able to mourn their loved ones properly, but I am sad for how this whole situation has unfolded.
May the families of these soldiers be comforted among the mourners of Israel.
