Gilad Shalit: The person who deals in camels should make the doors high.

According to the Israeli media, the Israeli government may release 980 Palestinian prisoners in a possible deal to win the freedom of Gilad Shalit, an Israeli soldier held captive by Hamas for three years.

After requesting proof that the soldier was still alive, Hamas sent a convincing tape of the soldier, apparently in good shape. Hamas understands that they have to set the bar very high for a “golden soldier”. Does Israel have a choice? Israel will do anything to get its soldier back. Hamas will not miss its opportunity to ask Israel to free its militants from Israeli jails. As the Arabs of Egypt say, “The person who deals in camels should make the doors high.”
