Hamas threatens Shalit’s fate

Posted: March 19, 2009 by Jonathan Boyko in Gaza, Gilad Shalit, Hamas, Israel

Al-Hayat daily quotes several officials saying Gilad Shalit would suffer Ron Arad’s fate [read: stay in captivity forever] due to Israel’s feet dragging on the negotiations. Apparently, the negotiations on the issue of Shalit completely broke down and it is unknown if negotiations will start again.

That is what you get when you start a military operation and do not end it properly. Hamas is back on its feet again. However, the very fact that in the past few days Hamas officials appear in media talking on the issue means that Hamas itself feels the pressure, although trying to appear tough.
