This is and has always been a PR play for Hamas, as I've stated before Hamas just trots out this deal for PR coverage in the western media. Never serious about doing a trade. Shalit is worth more for PR advantage...by blaming Israel for the failure...than to trade him and be done with it. Now remember Hamas was recently foiled trying to kidnap or kill another IDF soldier so they could keep the body trading gig going. If they were serious it would be done, who wouldn't take 450 for 1? With 100...of the 450...of the terrorists having blood on their hands. It was a NO GO from beginning. Hamas was never serious, wake up folks.
