The High Court of Justice began discussing petitions against the release of Palestinian prisoners in exchange for Gilad Schalit on Monday, with Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch saying that the deal meant "the cancellation of legal decisions which established that these people should be behind bars."

"We are sitting among our own people. There is no need to explain the painful history and the very difficult dilemmas we face," Beinisch stated to the court.
