"Israel should free all the 450 Palestinian murderers Hamas is demanding for the release of captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit," Tammy Arad, the wife of missing IAF navigator Ron Arad, said Tuesday. "I have no dilemmas about the issue," Arad told Army Radio. "If there was another alternative, Gilad would be here today. Who can guarantee that three years from now, there will be someone to return at all?" Arad criticized Prime Minister Ehud Olmert over his efforts to free the soldier, now in captivity for 989 days. "Leaders are tested by difficult decisions, and Olmert has already twice made the decision to go to war," she said. "Was this easier than making a decision on Schalit?"
