So anyway, the situation in Gaza is going down the drain. Hamas and Israel need to agree to a cease-fire, a la the understanding reached between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon following the Grapes of Wrath operation. That seems rather unlikely while Hamas is holding an Israeli soldier captive. Whats even more surprising to me is that the Israelis do not know where he is being kept. Its unlikely that the PRC, being a ragtag clan-based outfit, would be capable of keeping a secret this long. This suggests that the operation was planned and carried out entirely by Hamas. If the captured soldier winds up dead Hamas leaders will start dying.
