Gilad Shalit: New Developments

Over Pesach I heard some interesting theories as to where Gilad Shalit is being held. They sounded quite reasonable.

But that isn't the development I was referring to.

Now that Hamas and the Palestinian Authority are reconciled and unified, it can only mean one thing. The PA is now responsible for holding Gilad Shalit in captivity and they are the address from where Israel should be demanding his release.

good point. too bad it is meaningless, as nothing will come of such a claim..

Olah Chadasha said...

That's exactly what I said over Shabbat. If they're now partners, our number 1 demand to start any peace negotiations is the release of Shalit. Of course, we're just not that smart.

My thought too. Yes a Fatah-Hamas deal would would be disastrous (unless it resulted in another war between them and they all finished each other off), but instead of worrying ourselves about that, we should pretend to take them seriously, say we want to make peace with them and will make all sorts of concessions, but negotiate Gilad's release first, and then deal with the Hamas-Fatah problem.
They've been bulsh***ing us for years, why can't we do the same to them? Sign a treaty then break it, who cares. The world already thinks we're the ones who've never made any efforts for peace.

It's unfathamable how the UN/World is ok that the Red Cross is not allowed to inspect the prisoner (Gilad Shalit).

In 2005, Abbas--while still in Gaza--said the Kassams were Israel's problem to stop ( What are the chances he'll do anything about Shalit?

Jameel on milium? Osama dead?

Coincidence? You be the judge.

Any insightful connections between Yom Hoshoa and Death to Osama day?

as a "Golá" reader, I wonder where is Gilad held and why cant the israeli commandos free him
Can you explain it?
(some navy seals have found Bin Laden, why cant Shin Bet track Gilad?)

Perhaps Israel knows where he is, and where he is is in a booby-trapped room that is designed to explode if any soldier is seen getting close.

(That's one theory)

I follow Israeli news every day, and as a jew I am very interested in Israeli & jewish history
I am not israeli and that´s why some things are not easy to understand (i.e. I think E. Barak & Lieberman should switch theirs jobs)
Among the things I dont understand is the undonde rescue of G. Shalit.
Israel has rescued many hostages in Entebbe in a much complicated operation (many hostages, far from eretz), and GS is held and one cannot see a military solution to this (may be there was a failed one and the news have black it out)
I mean, several years have past and GS is held just a few kilometers from Israel.
You say booby trapped room... Couldnt find a solution yet?
I should say that I am not a soldier neither did the "tzava" in my country, so I lack of real military experience, but still its hard to believe that the legendary Israeli commandos cannot free him
