The release of Gilad Shalit speaks to a contest of strength and vulnerability. A morbid competition between Hamas and the Israeli government. Where both sides scramble for dominance and control. But like Gideon says... this is not some Oedipus syndrome in a Shakespearean play. Or a Kafka-esque prophecy to prevent future suicide bombings. This is about the personal fate of Gilad Shalit and the Palestinian prisoners. And after ballyhooed celebrations and remorseful tears... this may actually present a situation where both side have a lot to gain.
