It is clear that Gilad Shalit remains an embarrassment to the government of Israel. His value is insignificant. He is not to be redeemed. Ok, I understand that. It is a rational position. But let us not blame Hamas for the decision of Netanyahu. Israel's offer for Shalit is final. Hamas may oblige Israel by executing Gilad Shalit so that he will become the victim instead of the unredeemed captive. Why do I think Hamas is so cruel as to keep him alive to torment Israel?
