Middle East Math: 1 Jew is worth 1,027 Palestinians.
Not every name appears in the Torah Code. This is discussed at Talmud and Names. There is no full ELS for Gilad Shalit as spelled in the Israeli press, even if we used wrapped Torah where the computer makes more than one pass through the 304,805 letters of Torah in search of his name. But Israeli and other names can often be spelled more than one way. This is a criticism of the code emphasized by Brendan McKay, who points out that there are four spellings for Abulafia on the signs attached to the Abulafia synagogue in Tiberias, Israel. In looking at the name SHALIT, there are two letters that can be used for the T at the end. The Israeli press uses tet, but tav has the same sound. On the first matrix above the axis term is G. SHALIT (at its 6th lowest ELS) with the last letter a tav. On the second matrix above, the axis term is GILAD SHALIT, but SHALIT is spelled shin lamed tav and there is no yud. There is an assumed vowel chireq (a dot) to replace the yud. It would go under the lamed (such vowels are not written in Torah). Both matrices above have NETANYAHU at skip +1. On the top matrix 180-letter matrix NETANYAHU was there against odds of about 106 to 1 before an adjustment for the axis term ELS rank, but without looking at other terms that's reduced to about 18 to 1 when we see that G. SHALIT is only at its 6th lowest ELS. The phrase AS A MAN DOES BEAR HIS SON surely describes how Prime Minister Netanyuhu felt about Shalit, but it was only found a-posteriori.
On the second matrix (240 letters) NETANYAHU was there against initial odds of about 80 to 1. The axis term here (GILAD SHALIT), however, is at ELS rank 3. As such this match (when considering ELS rank) is better than with the top matrix, existing against final odds of about 27 to 1. However the second matrix also has a-priori key words PRISONER and GAZA. The phrase GAZA. The phrase AND TAKE THEM OUT was only found a-posteriori. Obviously, Netanyahu's agreement with Hamas took a lot of prisoners out of captivity besides Shalit - 477 today and a total of 1,027 within the next two months on the Palestinian side (but about 5,000 will remain in Israeli prisons). GAZA was there against odds of about 6 to 1. For PRISONER it was about 2 to 1 (two synonyms were checked). Overall the odds against the second matrix occurring by chance were avebout 289 to 1. Of five 4-letter synonyms checked for TERROR on the top two matrices, only one of them shown with the orange pentagons appeared on the second matrix at a nonsignificant skip. It only altered the odds from 289 to 1 up to 296 to 1. So I don't see anything on the top two matrices that strongly suggesting that Israeli will pay for this exchange with a major terrorist attack.
On the third matrix below (a wrapped matrix), two words form the vertical axis term. They are DEAL and SHALIT. SHALIT here has the tav.
With respect to the matrix below, although the Torah refers to Israel as a stiff-necked people, here STIFF-NECKED directly crosses and shares a letter shin with SHALIT. So who is STIFF-NECKED – SHALIT or the Palestinians? The answer here seems quite clear. STIFF-NECKED is overlapped by ARAFAT at skip +1. ARAFAT only occurs at skip +1 twice in Torah. Also on the matrix at skip -2 is GAZA. No statistical significance is offered here, however, because STIFF-NECKED was only found a-posteriori.
Yasir ARAFAT is dead, but his terrorism lives on. There is a Torah Codes video by Rabbi Glazerson about terrorist release at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07HTFIlamtM.

Hamas leader praises Israel’s ‘strength’ in prisoner swap
High price paid for single soldier

“To do what Israel did shows the value Israeli society places on human life,” Salah al-Arouri, a member of the Islamist militant group’s politburo, said this week on Israel Radio from Damascus, Syria.“This is a pillar of Israel’s strength — to wage a war to free one man, to free a thousand prisoners for him,” he said, referring to the Jewish state’s efforts to free Staff Sgt. Gilad Schalit from his Hamas captors. “This is the strength of a society and an army.”
