    I do agree that Hamas will not release The Israeli captured soldier ?Shalit? without a quid pro quo. Hamas however ,might be willing to make the first move , if they have cast iron guarantees from the Israelis and Americans through the Saudis and Egyptians That there will be a phased release of the Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails soon after they release Shalit. & more importantly they would want the start of the final status negotiations based on the peace offer made to Israel as per the Saudi plan. Hamas knows that Olmert is in a weak domestic position And needs a ?? victory ?? of some sort to be able to move on the major Issues. Hamas after the Mecaa meeting feel strong enough to make this first move but it will hinge on how satisfied they are with the guarantees they receive on the above issues. Watch out also for a Lebanese unity government including members of Hizbo Allah being formed soon ; attending the coming Arab summit and committing itself to the peace plan. Yet another indication that a regional peace settlement could be in hand If the Israeli government is able , ready and willing to seize the opportunity

    from the article: Hamas: No connection between Shalit release, formation of unity gov't
