Having the Israeli gov commit to Palestinian statehood, real statehood without an occupation would be a better strategy. The Likud platform is bankrupt. You really should read what Likud's platform says. That would end a lot of the desire to take Israelis prisoner. It would also end Israeli prisoner taking. With a short exception, Israeli strategy has been Likud or Likud light for more than a decade with NO progress towards or effort at peace - just expansion.
