Ben-Ari Tells Leftist He'd Trade Him for Schalit

Heated debate broke out during a conference Tuesday night at Bar Ilan University on the subject of releasing terrorists to further peace talks with the Palestinian Authority (PA).

Former MK Michael Ben-Ari said to Yariv Oppenheimer, head of the extreme-left group Peace Now, that he would gladly have replaced Gilad Schalit, who was held captive by Hamas for five years, with Oppenheimer.
