67. No, they're not...
...Israel has never made bones about the fact that if any opposing groups kidnap Israeli soldiers, the Israeli government will place absolutely NO VALUE on said soldiers' lives in their efforts to punish via violence. In other words, "If you grab one of our guys and try to use their presence as a shield, don't think it will stop us from bombing the hell out of you and killing our own personnel." They view this policy as the one needed to prevent those type of kidnappings.

They don't care about rescue; they see the policy as preemptive.
