NRG reported a little while ago that a statement released shortly will outline a deal for the release of Gilad Shalit. Former Egyptian Ambassador to Israel, Mohamed Bassiouni, in a newspaper interview, said that the time for the deal was now. Earlier Amos Gilad, head of the political security cabinet, returned from Cairo where he delivered an answer from the government to the latest list of prisoners Hamas is demanding. The news sparked a flurry of stories on an imminent deal and now the Prime Minister’s Office twitted: “Negotiations on Gilad Schalit are continuous and intensive, but there is no breakthrough in the matter”…

So maybe it’s nothing… Maybe just a way to put some pressure on the negotiation. Either way he has been there for 1803 days
