The magic number

In a court filing on Sunday, the Israeli government disclosed the number of terrorists it is willing to trade for kidnapped IDF corporal Gilad Shalit: 980.
In a response to a petition seeking to publish the names of the Palestinians prisoners slated to be released as part of the Shalit deal, the State Prosecutor's Office stated that the release of 450 prisoners is being considered.

It was also stated, "As part of a unilateral gesture to the Palestinian people, an additional 530 terrorists chosen by Israel are to be released." It was noted that such a list has not yet been compiled and no criteria were set for the matter.
The government also asked the court to reject the petition by MK Yaakov Katz (National Union) asking the court to force the government to publish the Shamgar Commission report saying that "there is no cause for the court to get involved."

The country's in good hands. What could go wrong?

The government is afraid of allowing Jews to learn the truth. Just what does it have to fear - after all it just wants bring Shalit home. Or is there more to it than that it wants to keep the country in the dark about?
