Headline of the day

Israel HaYom‘s (Israel Today) front page this morning:


The main headline translates as:

On the way to negotiations, with a heavy heart.

Short and to the point. It seems to be an accurate reflection of what many Israelis feel at this time.

My sympathies lie with those who have suffered at the hands of the soon to be released prisoners. Were I in their position, I am not sure my protest would be so restrained.

Please, let some good come out of this. Something really, really good.
