With Six You Get Hummus
Two can play at this game.
The Israelis have started taking new hostages to trade for the soldier, rather than forking over pre-existing prisoners:
Israeli forces arrested the Palestinian deputy prime minister and dozens of other Hamas officials early Thursday and pressed their incursion into Gaza, responding to the abduction of one of its soldiers....
Army Radio said the arrested Hamas leaders might be used to trade for the captured soldier. Israel had refused earlier to trade prisoners for the soldier's release.
More than 30 lawmakers were detained, according to Palestinian security officials. Among them were Palestinian Deputy Prime Minister Nasser Shaer, Labor Minister Mohammed Barghouti and two other ministers in the West Bank.
So how long before Hamas surrenders? Or perhaps -- how long until Hamas is obliterated? Either endgame will be fine with Israel.
So far, Hamas -- now the official government of the Palestinian Authority -- refuses to recognize that Israel exists. It's going to become powerful hard to deny the existence of a country that's kicking their butts. Will they claim they're actually being attacked by Galactus or the Mole Men?
Palestinian plans for high-rise apartments, sports complexes and industrial parks in lands evacuated by Israel have given way to despair, with rising poverty, increasingly violent relations with Israel and a looming threat of civil war.
I can think of an easy solution:
- Recognize Israel;
- Accept the legitimacy and legality of previous agreements;
- Stop shootin' at Jews!
There, that didn't hurt much, did it?

Well, I was just sitting around listening to a Joe Satriani CD, so naturally I thought of Galactus.
(Ten points to Slytherin if you can supply the missing boxcars in that train of thought!)

Okay Satriani had an album Surfin' with the Alien. The Silver Surfer was the herald of Galacticus.
I vote Condi Rice for new herald.
Seriously, what has consistently saved the Palestinians (and Muslim terrorists in general) is not their Jihadi warrior spirit. Not their supposed bravery. Not their cleverness. What saves them is something that we give them, and can easily take back. Restraint.
Israel now gets to play by Hamas rules.

You guys are forgetting what we have learned over the last few years about Arabs, Islam and terrorists.
1. They know how to use the media.
2. They know how to use deception.
3. They know how to make the west react the way
they want them to.
4. They always come out smelling, looking and acting the victim, and the Arab world and most of the western world (especially europe) believe it.
They don't care if thousands are killed, in fact that is what they want. They want to be able to show pictures and videos of the "Invaders", " The Bloodthirsty Jews", "The murderers of women and children". And if the Jews don't oblige them by killing women and children they will make the bollywood movies anyway, showing dead women and children.
Mark my words.
