Red Cross Backs Down-Again!
The visit of the Red Cross to Gilad Shalit: a Hamas leader has denied that his organization would authorize a representative of the Red Cross to visit the Israeli corporal. Ossama al-Mazini justified this refusal by the concern that Hamas has to keep Gilad alive. "If Israel knows where he is, it may bombard the spot to cause his death and put an end to the affair," he said. On Wednesday, the Red Cross official Angelo Gnaedinger met with the former Hamas PM Ismail Haniyeh who gave him hope of seeing the captive.
