I am very sad to say that, but Gilad Shalit has very little chance of coming home before HAMAS is crushed (or implodes from the inside). They keep him as their ultimate life insurance. The parasitic clowns running that "resistance" must know - and I believe they DO know - that their personal fates will be extremely unenviable should anything happen to the guy. They don't understand normal human language - will, keep them in permanent fear. Obviously, they will never agree for any "exchange" - for 500, 1000 or 10000 thugs, and will use any pretext to avoid any deals. So sad for the innocent young man.
