Grateful to the settlements
In the upcoming days, when you hear right wingers everywhere cry against the release of prisoners, it is important to remember:
The Prime Minister had the choice to release prisoners or temporarily freeze construction in the settlements.
Netanyahu knew that the right will not ever agree to stop, even for a moment, the construction of settlements - and therefore chose to release more than a hundred prisoners with blood on their hands.

"[politically he] is being held hostage by people who care more about building a new neighborhood in the territories than about the security of Israeli citizens.
Sixty One drive home their point with great drama, adding: "In other words, you may come home in a coffin, but they [the settlers] will have Samaria".
[Context: Freezing settlement construction was an alternative goodwill gesture proposed by Kerry; Netanyahu chose the release of prisoners]
