Abbas is Abbas before and after the liberation of Shalit and the eventual hickup in Hamas' popularity. In two months, the realities of daily life and politics will have left this deal and the parades behind. This deal has simply no impact whatsoever in the Israeli - Palestinian conflict. It changes nobody's position. The only change that may happen is released terrorists and their "colegues" of bothe Fatah and Hamas, wanting to kidnap another IDF soldier. That's the only change, and the possibility of terrorist attacks not being thwarted by the Shin-Beth, border police, police or IDF. Except for that, nothing has changed.
