"Gaza is a tiny place, albeit very overcrowded. Shalit is there. He couldn`t possibly have been smuggled out of it. Israel has drones, satellites, hearing devices, all kinds of technology, and last but not least, the Shin Bet humint. It also has the most special elite units in the whole world. If Gilad Shalit can`t be rescued because he would be killed by his captors, at least he can be localized. From that moment on, the terrorists are on the defensive and no deal is needed." Doesn't this tell you, Fortuna Benmayor, that your blind faith in, and admiration for, Israel's drones, satellites, hearing devices, all kinds of technology, the Shin Bet humint and the most special elite units in the whole world is misplaced?
