Five years

Five years ago Gilad Shalit was kidnapped from an army post inside Israel, and taken to Gaza. I sincerely hope that he will return home soon, but I don't have high hopes. It reminds me a bit of the Palestinian/Arab-Israeli conflict: we all know what the outcome and the price will be, it is just a matter of time before we have a leader who feels strong enough and is willing to pay that price. All the suffering that people have to go through until then is in vain, I often think. But maybe I am just being naive, or dumb.
