    I am asking my self is it not possible? I have nothing to say to the relatives of Gilad Shalit, they have all the right to say what they say to advance relase of Shalit. On the other hand I still remember an interview with one of the terrorists in an Israeli Jail. He was sentenced to more than one life sentences. He had killed many in a bombing or something similar. The interview was done in jail and broadcast on Israeli TV. He was not sorry for what he did, and how he killed women and children. Not only that, he also proudly announced he would continue to do the same!!! Keep that in mind when you ask release of ALL the prisoners HAMAS want released. That guy did not even offer a token sentence of remorse or any repentance! A logical murderer would lie, try to look good on TV. But no, this guy was proud! Let us not forget that!
