Gilad Shalit Freed

Gilad Shalit, an Israeli soldier held in Gaza for more than five years has been released. His freedom comes in return for the release of over one thousand Palestinians held in Israeli jails, four hundred of whom have already been released. The move has serious implications for the future of the conflict over Palestine, and for the ongoing action at the United Nations involving the Palestinian bid for statehood.
