Israel holds nearly 12,000 POWs ans hostages, including over half the elected officials of the Palestinian Authority. In 4 years, Hamas hasn't changed its demands, they want a specific, less than 10% of the people Israel holds in trade for the one they hold. The problem is that the Israeli government thinks of him as the Shalit baby, snatched from his cradle, not a soldier enforcing a siege when captured. Two days before his capture, Israel crossed into Gaza and took two Gazans, a father and son. And Netanyahu says, if Israel just holds firm, Hamas will fold. When, in 10 or 15 more years? Where does Netanyahu get this intuition or insight, from the way they softened when he was last PM? They aren't sending out suicide bombers any more. Netanyahu doesn't understand, they changed tactics on him.
