The rumor mill is run hard and fast right now. The papers are all reporting on it.
Gilad Shalit is going to be freed just ahead of elections in a blatant attempt to manipulate the election results (but is it Hamas or Kadima that is doing the manipulating?).
Among the terrorist murderers being mentioned that Israel plans to release is none other than the murderer/terrorist Marwan Bargouhti. Presumably he will immediately take over rule of the PA from both Fatah and Hamas.
This cynical use of an IDF hostage is nearly (but not quite) beyond belief.
