It will be encouragement for more abductions. Those B***S ***T know how Israel values the safety of the IDF/IAF boys..He is not a POW he was not involved in a war ...he was on the Israeli side just standing outside the of his base..You give these lot an inch they'll take a yard..Frankly as I read Yosemite's post no one knows how it will end,nor do I.... They keep the fellow down where all the myriad tunnels...It seems(from what I read by someone) they move him not only by the day,but by the hour..And that is if he is there at all,or transported out of Gaza.. If the Mossad were not able to rescue him what chance is there.That now he has been replaced by the Senior Mossad official and just to negotiate ...what the hell does it mean..Negotiate?? Swapping ...oh yeah...releasing the murderers who once out..return to commit further killings and abductions...Hope has been exhausted so far..And the les batards know it...Sick to read time after time..Four years for god's sake...I despair. Imagine what it must be like for the family ...
