Israel has accepted all the demands of the captors, claims the leadership in Hamas.
Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal on Tuesday night called the deal to exchange Gilad Schalit for over 1,000 Palestinian prisoners a “great achievement.” “We are happy with this great achievement and we thank our God for that. But our happiness is mixed with sorrow because we were not able to gain the freedom of all prisoners,” Meshaal said from Damascus, speaking in a televised speech.
Hamas presented the prisoner exchange agreement as a “historic victory,” saying Israel has accepted all the demands of the captors.

Hamas and Israel do both claim victory in regards to the release of Gilad Shalit.
When citizens kidnap other people, they are normally arrested and kept behind bars.
The criminals who kidnapped Shalit are not branded as suitable peace partners for Israel. They are also awarded the release of 1.000 other criminals, who are ready to copy the kidnapping at any given moment.
The valid question would be:
When the next IDF soldier are kidnapped, will another 1.000 Islamic terrorists be released in an exchange offer?
Is there any valid upper limit of how many Islamic terrorists Israel wants to release?
Yesterday, I wrote that the life of one Jew is worth the release of 1.000 Islamic terrorists. Not because I rejoice over the slaughter of Jews they will commit in the future, but because the lack on humanity we can find in people who cripple and kill for “allah”.
