Prove it!

Prime Minister Netanyahu has told Hamas that he will show no more flexibility in talks to release kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Shalit.
Netanyahu reportedly stressed that his point man in talks to free the captured soldier, Hagai Hadas, would be given no more wiggle room beyond the mandate he has received.

"The prime minister insists that dangerous terrorists, as well as those who committed murder by their own hands, will not be released to locations from which they will endanger the lives of Israeli citizens," the officials said.

Negotiations between Israel and Hamas are still ongoing. On Tuesday the German mediator working on the prisoner exchange deal was in the Gaza Strip to hear the Islamist group's response to Israel's latest proposal.
Is Israel done conceding in the Shalit talks? I'll believe it when I see it.

Carl - the Egyptians kicked out George Galloway and put him on a black list. Its time Israel did the same to Hamas.

Saw that on al-Beeb. No time to deal with it now. Maybe tomorrow night.

Shabbat Shalom.

Maybe I'm being naive here but why doesn't Israel mount an operation to simultaneously kidnap a group of Hamas top bigshots?

Seems that if Israel held 3 or 4 or a dozen of the top Hamas people, (and held them under the same incommunicado conditions as Shalit) Israel would have some real leverage. "You want 'em back? It'll cost you the unconditional release of Shalit." All the Islamists and their Western toadies and "progressive" would beat their chests about Israeli nastiness, but, hey what's new there? Seriously, any comment on why counter-kidnapping of terrorists hasn't been done?
