MK Yitzhak Levi (NU/NRP) announced on Wednesday morning that he was prepared to support the release of his daughter's killers in return for kidnapped IDF soldier Cpl. Gilad Schalit. Levi - whose daughter, Ayelet Hashahar Levi, was killed by a car bomb in Jerusalem in November 2000 - sent a letter to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, calling to include the perpetrators of the attack in a prisoner swap deal, on the condition that the killers then be banished from Israel. In an interview with Army Radio, Levi said that "there is only one way in which a prisoner release would be reasonable, and that is [by] sending them outside of the state of Israel and [the PA territories] and keeping them in another country."
