Shalit talks postponed

Egypt has postponed indefinitely the latest round of talks for the release of kidnapped IDF Corporal Gilad Shalit in a bid to develop bridging proposals according to the London-based Al-Hayat.
According to the report, Egypt will work in the coming weeks to formulate a compromise between the parties that would allow for a completion of the deal.

An "Egyptian source" told Al Hayat that thee Palestinian delegation, led by Hamas's political bureau chief Khaled Mashaal, seemed confident about the Schalit deal, and said that Hamas supported its completion and implementation.
Israel Radio reports that neither side has shown any willingness to compromise. What a shock.

Any deal would involve an Israeli surrender to Hamas' demands. The reason there hasn't been one to date is that Israel has found Hamas' price too high to pay.

Don't look for that to change in the foreseeable future.

What could go wrong indeed
