That some of the top Hamas-leaders don´t even know where Shalit is being held. And - there has been a constant powerstruggle within Hamas. Some are "liberal", some are hardliners. But if the reports are true (that both Jaabari and Mashaal are involved and in charge), then maybe there is more than just "a grain of truth". But again - Matan Vilnai said (june 1) that even some Hamas-leaders don´t know where Shalit is. If this is true, then it is an extremely complicated process. Who among the palestinians has the last word in Gaza about Shalit?
