Militants give Israel deadline on releases

... Quote:
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Militants gave Israel 24 hours starting Monday to begin releasing hundreds of Palestinian prisoners, implying they would kill an abducted Israeli soldier if their demands were not met.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert rejected any negotiations with the militants, and the army pressed ahead with its Gaza offensive. Privately, though, some officials said the government had not ruled out any options to win Cpl. Gilad Shalit's freedom.

Israel has pounded Gaza with airstrikes and artillery shells for nearly a week in an unsuccessful effort to force the Hamas-linked militants to release Shalit. It has been building up troops across from northern Gaza, preparing for an invasion. Tanks and troops moved in and out throughout the day and the military said it was carrying out "limited" operations to uncover explosives and tunnels.

Militants demand the release of hundreds of Palesinian prisoners. If they are not released militants will kill Israeli soldier, Shalit.

Looks like Israel is going to get bad press no matter what they do.

If they give in to the kidnappers demands they only encourage more terrorists to kidnap people. If they refuse to negotiate then the pro palastinian promoters just use their actions to beat them up.

It is obvious that the militants really don't want Israel to negotiate because they offer only fantastically outlandish demands. They are just in it to whip up anti Israel feelings in the west and the Arab countries.
