I agree, and I think that everyone in Israel Agrees. We (Unlike our friends on the other side of the border) do not want to see anyone get hurt, We are going in to SAVE someone from getting hurt.

this is of course also 2 days of diplomacy, trying every single channel (Including Syria) to get Shalit back to Israel.

I hope that this operation ends with no one getting hurt. so far we are almost 24 hours in and I have not heard any reports of any one injured... let's hope it stays that way.
