This is just a sampling of what to expect from the Arabs if Israel were to give into every demand for the promise of ‘peace’. Their list of demands would just be met with a new list of demands with the threat of renewed violence lurking in the background if they weren’t met. It’s a mugs game. KGS
It is incredible what political simpletons Jews are. They shut their eyes to one of the most elementary rules of life, that you must not “meet halfway” those who do not want to meet you.

Abbas: Olmert promised more prisoners after Shalit
Palestinian president claims former prime minister secretly vowed to release larger number of detainees after captive soldier’s return; tells Time Magazine he expects Netanyahu to keep predecessor’s promise.
Israel released 477 prisoners this week and is expected to release 550 more as part of the second stage of the Shalit deal, but Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is upping the ante, demanding to free a larger number of prisoners, as he claims was promised to him secretly by former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.
