    For 4 years the world has shown its double standard. The Jews are investigated for every suspicion, but the Palestinian Muslims are allowed to violate every international law and treaty with impunity. Bibi should take the initiative and immediately cut off all access to every Hamas prisoner, giving them the exact same treatment Shalit gets: no visits, no lawyers, no Red Cross, no letters, no phone calls, no light of day. Bibi should assume direct responsibility for the decision. If all those alleged "human rights" workers have a problem with this, then they can simply tell Hamas that Israel will reciprocate if Hamas honors international law. As soon as Hamas allows Shalit a Red Cross visit, Hamas prisoners will get a single Red Cross visit. Remembering, of course, that many of these Hamas prisoners are convicted mass murderers - which of course also doesn't bother "human rights" workers who want Israel to simply release them all so they can resume killing innocent civilians.
