Israel to Release 500 Palestinian Prisoners

In a hopeful sign, Israel has agreed to release 500 or so Palestinian prisoners. Most had served at least 2/3 of their sentences and none had been found guilty of harming Israelis. This will be a good portent, however, only if the Palestinian Authority truly reciprocates. If not, all the Israelis have done is swelled the ranks of their opponents.

Given how things are going, I am prepared to hope for the best.
