Hamas is not interested in cutting a face saving deal with Israel. Hamas is not interested in cutting a deal in which Israel calls the shots. This is a win/win siituation for Hamas. They don't need the trade. Either Israel can meet the Hamas price or there will be no deal. I thought that this was obvious to everybody. Israelis just can't accept a situation which they cannot kill their way out of, as they have already tried.
