: It was a year filled with hope and growth, overshadowed by terrorism and unrest. The Israel Defense Forces looks back at all of it, the good and the bad, in this video review.

The year 2011 was one filled with the momentous release of kidnapped IDF Sgt. Gilad Shalit after more than five years of captivity by the Hamas terrorist rulers of Gaza.

A year in which 1,027 Palestinian Authority Arab prisoners — including literally hundreds of bloodthirsty terrorists — were freed as the price for Shalit’s return. One Jewish soul, so precious that more than a thousand Arab terrorists were set free in exchange.
