3. If I was the leader of Hamas I would say thank you very much
This is exactly the same as how the Gilad Shalit deal began. First there is the tough stance by the government refusing to do deals Next the family start holding various stunts to raise awareness Then the general public rallies round the family demanding action Finally the government give into public pressure and releases about 1100 terrorists including killers and the only reason Hamas have kept these bodies it to ransom them for hundreds of terrorists and if the public get emotional the government will cave in again and pay the price Hamas demands again.
In the beginning the government talked tough refused to do deals. Then the Shalit family carried out stunts to get their cause noticed Then the public started to support the Shalt family & there were mass protests Then the government got scared so did a deal with Hamas and released 1100 terrorists including killers and now from the looks of it we are going to see it all again. The greatest ally Hamas have are the emotional Israeli public and the government will cave into Hamas demands again.
