Most notably among the terrorist returned is Samir Kantar, who after killing a man in front of his four year old daughter, caved the daughters skull in with the but of his rifle. He was treated like a hero and greeted with much fan fair, including high government officials, upon his return; disgusting.

The released terrorists have already pledged to continue fighting against Israel, and the group is left thinking/knowing that kidnapping will work. It also takes the incentive out of keeping captives alive.

It is good that two families finally have a body to close a sad chapter in their lives, but it may reduce the chances of getting the third missing soldier back alive. It also increases the likelihood of more kidnapping attempts.
