I think of you as one of the more intelligent women posting here. Your "Humanism" is however clouding your vision.There must be a recognition by the Arabs that Israel is here to stay and that we will not be budged by terror. Furthermore we will not discuss anything other than garbage collection until this happens. Abbas/Haniya is the same drek on different days. Both must be made to understand that we mean business. We must also make them understand that we will seal their cities and villages until Shalit is released and we will hold them both responsible for his fate. Destroy 2 Buildings per day in Gaza until he is released and arrest any Hamas member in pinprick incursions into Gaza.Announce that you will kill any leader that ventures outside his bunker and collateral damage will be of no consequence.Make it so painful that they will think twice about kidnapping again.
