PA will hold Gilad Shalit hostage

IMRA speaks with PA Deputy Prime Minister Nabil Shaath (and PA Deputy for Gaza) and asks, once the reunification between Hamas and the PA is complete what will happen to Gilad Shalit. Will he be released?

PA Deputy Prime Minister Nabil Shaath explains that Gilad Shalit will be used by the PA to get as may prisoners (terrorists) released from Israeli jails as possible. He could not say if negotiations will be easier or more difficult than they are directly with Hamas.

IMRI: When unification is completed, of the Gaza Strip and West Bank under one authority again, what do you expect would happen with the handling of the Gilad Shalit case? Would that still be the purview of Hamas, or would it be the responsibility of this unified authority?

Shaath: It should be the responsibility of the unified authority, and we should proceed as soon as possible to exchange Shalit for as many Palestinian prisoners as possible...

President Obama was very clear when he addressed AIPAC -- he called upon Hamas to release Shalit.

Will he now demand the same from the PA, and bar all funding to them till he is released?

Doubt it.

Will Israel's Defenseless Defense Minister Ehud Barak place pressure on the PA to get Shalit unconditionally released?

Doubt it.

We should hold back on sending the PA any money until Shalit is released or at least seen by regular visits of the red cross.

NO ARABS should be released.
