What's Wrong With This Prisoner Release?

Just before the Annapolis conference, "the [Israeli] government approved the release of 441 Palestinian prisoners according to a proposal presented by Olmert as a goodwill gesture."

From Ha'aretz: >Report: Palestinian Prisoners Released by Israel Killed 177 Israelis - Nadav Shragai (Ha'aretz):

Palestinian militants freed in past prisoner releases by Israel were responsible for at least 30 terror attacks which claimed the lives of 177 Israelis, according to a study published Monday by Almagor, an organization representing the victims of Palestinian terrorism.

According to the report, 6,912 militants were released between the years 1993 and 1999, and nearly 80% of them returned to terrorist activity.
