Gilead is a soldier. His is now a Prisoner of War. Within reason, means that Bibi will not do just anything Hamas demands for Gilead's release. For example, it would be ludicrous to consider releasing mass amounts of Palestinian murderers from our prisons, so they can get out and kill more people. Today they want 1,000 released, plus more items on their agenda. No one knows what their conditions will be tomorrow. Hamas is unstable and have proved to the world that they are unfit negotiators or partners for peace. Does anyone really believe that Bibi and the gov't do not care about Gilead Shalit and that they are not doing all they reasonably can to bring about his speedy release? We must have some faith in our democratically elected government and stand united against Hamas and the forces that seek Israel's annihilation.
