Acually Gill, the original offer by Hamas was to exchange 250 women and children for Shalit. The value added feature is a direct result of Israel driving up the price. If Bibi follows Olmert's pattern, he will stall until Gilad Shalit is someone else's problem. By then the price will be 1,000 Hamas for 1 Israeli. That Israel is plagued with cowardly politicians unwilling to make a decision to either forsake or redeem Gilad Shalit is a shame. i myself think a one-for-one trade be made. Bibi for Gilad. Then let Bibi rot.
