    ..absolutely nothing to do with Schalit.. You are absolutely correct. For as long as Hamas is holding on to Schalit is tormenter on Israel. And where there is even the visibility of tormenter on Israel is already joy, pride & honor for Hamas. This notion is above the would be triple amount of Pal prisoners in Israeli jails. But they have to hold on to him in the `good PR mode`. Make appearance they want the deal, change or up the deal that they know will have Israel back off. On the other hand, Israel backing off or countering Hamas does not look good on Israel, especially for all who are long pained for this whole travesty. Thus when the freedom is supposedly almost tasted and than collapses so many times, the frustration brushes aside the legitimate questions of what had really happened in between and at what price. Thus with more & more time passing by, upping the pressure on Israel to increase the price to whatever it takes, regardless of whatever negatives that may arise.
