How does our enemy know that a single kidnapped Jew is worth more than 1,000 arab terrorist prisoners? Is there any other Nation in the history of the world that would trade 1,000 murderers for one simple soldier? They laugh at us because of this. They see it to be our great weakness, but in fact, it is our greatest strength. There is no such thing as "only" one Jewish casualty. Our love for each other unites us, and causes each of us pain when any innocent Jew is harmed. We have always been one, but sometimes, sadly, it takes a tragedy to bring this out.
