Today is a wonderful day for all who wish to see a world free from Israeli terrorism. Today four hundred and seventy seven Arab freedom fighters were released in exchange for a single Jewish conscript. Hamas with the help of the Egyptian government have once again shown the people of Palestine that they are the ones that will lead the fight against the murderous Israeli regime.
On top of today's triumph a further 550 prisoners are to be released next month, a deal that I can't help but feel the serpent will try and worm its way out of.
The majority of the released prisoners are experienced fighting men, and one hopes that Israels giving in to their peoples public feeling will prove to be a painful mistake. Hundreds of men determined to free their people from the snakes hold can only be positive for the fight against a state determined to murder its way to global political domination.
Politics aside, today is a happy day for the families of these men and women and I hope that the reunions of men and women with their spouses, their parents and their children are occasions of great joy for all. Their is precious little happiness for the people of Gaza afterall.
