Israel & the Man Next Door…

Israel’s deputy PM Haim Ramon today had this to say on the question of how to get Hamas to release captive soldier Gilad Shalit: “Tell the Egyptians to invite Hamas representatives to Cairo and we will send Ofer Dekel. Each one will sit in a different room, they will negotiate, and within a week Gilad Shalit will be returning home. Tell them that only then will the border crossings open. We can’t put off addressing the Gilad Shalit issue, and we must begin immediately.”

So, the U.S. can’t talk to Hamas, but Israel must?

But following Ramon’s own logic, Shalit would be home even quicker if the Israelis and Hamas would sit in the same room, saving the time taken for the Egyptians to shuttle between the two rooms. Something to think about, eh? But the Israelis won’t. After all, sitting in the same room would “legitimize” Hamas…
