What a fantastic deal. Hamas has pulled off. Once these prisoners are released, Hamas shall begin on phase two - kidnapping more Israeli soldiers. Then there will be another round of negotiations, but this time for the "bigwig" prisoners. The funny thing is the Israeli politicians are totally at the mercy of Hamas. Yet they claim that they coerced Hamas into showing flexibility, My backside, is all i can say! Hamas has whipped you. Cannot wait for another 1000 prisoners to be released.
