As usual, Netanyahu is trying to shift the blame. By calling on the international community to release Shalit, he pretends that Israel cannot do anything. In fact, it can. If Israel does not know where Shalit is located, let it kidnap a very senior Hamas person, such as Khaled Meshaal and exchange Shalit for him. Time to think about such an option, even if 4 years too late. Incidentally, two of the Western hostages in Lebanon in the 80's, Terry Anderson and Thomas Sutherland, waited in captivity some six and a half years to be released, in conditions not better than Gilad Shalit. So the Shalit family should not be so desperate, especially since they received a few communications from their son, including a video. I know they are afraid and heartbroken, but there is also national interest involved.
