Every Israeli - especially those directly dealing with captives - needs to see the movie "Proof of Life" about the kidnap and ransom trade. It offers many lessons, not least of which are that one must NEVER pay for a proof of life, and that sometimes there are no more deals to be had, and action is the only option.

Personally, I find it remarkable that to this day we don't even know if he is alive. Yet how can one negotiate when one doesn't even know what he's negotiating for?

We've pretty much taught them that we will pay similar prices for alive, dead, 10 year old bones, etc. So why should they prove anything to us?
