    In the interests of securing the release of Gilad Shalit, more serious attention needs to be taken to the issues of settlements and their impact on the fragile relationship between Israel and America, let alone the long-term security objective of Israel being tied to the creation of a Palestinian State in accordance with the 2 State Solution and internationally accepted borders between Israel and Palestine, namely Gaza and the West Bank alongside the Israeli State. Careful attention should be given to mediating between Hamas and Al-Fatah to see a strengthened leadership of Mahmoud Abbas, with the objective of bringing peace and prosperity to the Palestinian people, living harmoniously alongside the Israeli State. Netanyahu is certainly not helping by giving mixed signals on settlement expansion, let alone not addressing the fundamental question that remains internationally about the state of the internationally (UN) recognised borders of Israel and Palestine.
