Egypt, charge him with espionage, and present him before a judge. Show the judge the evidence that convinced you he's a spy. If you can convince the judge beyond reasonable doubt, he's a spy. If you can't, he's not. It's a simple enough concept. The fact that Egyptian prosecutors decided to drop the charges of espionage against him means that they do not feel they will be able to convince a judge. If you can't convince a judge of it, then for all legal and diplomatic purposes he's not a spy, plain and simple. Trying to throw a suspected spy in jail on trumped-up charges, out of knowledge that you can't convince a judge that he's a spy, is called a miscarriage of justice. Furthermore, trying to get prisoners whos guilt was actually proven before a judge from Israel in return is called diplomatic blackmail. Egypt is not Hamas - they're a government, not a terrorist group. Why should we be negotiating prisoner swaps for a man whom the Egyptian government have themselves admitted they don't have evidence against? Maybe a better option would be to let Egypt prove to the world that Mubarak's corrupt, politically-controlled judicial system is truly gone. Thank you Ilan Grapel for exposing to the world that it's not.
