How Many Released Palestinian Prisoners Does It Take To Win One Israeli Soldier's Freedom?

The answer to the question above is 980.

That's right. The Israeli government is about to release 980 Palestinian prisoners in exchange for the return of Gilad Shalit - an Israeli soldier who has been held by Hamas in the Gaza strip for three years now.

According to Israeli news media accounts, the Israeli government would first hand over 450 prisoners before Shalit's release. The remaining 530 would be released after his safe return.
