    maybe gilads abducation is in the light of what hamas otherwise does considered a petty crime by you... but not here. the whole story went international in a big way. its something people do understand without any inside knowledge of ME politics. gilads name is LINKED with hamas AND gaza. gilads abduction is a CRIME by any standards. your blackmailing for prisoners logically gets a lot of attention. yes, go and ask for the big guns, all their deeds will become public as well. gilad is damning propaganda for gaza. and they know all that. he became an obligation. that is why they cant harm him and havent kidnapped anyone else, and wont do it. apart from lots of trouble and big "PR"-damage, nothing of favour was gained with his abduction. this "game" doesnt work, abdalla... the best you can do, is to prepare well, before exchanging him: invite the red cross, show him in proper condition, good mood, use it to make some "PR" to your advantage...
