8 or so bees in my bonnet

just how is depriving 78% of a people very used to strife of electricity for 7/8 months a good negotiation tool. is it a (rare) civilian israeli leader trying to win his stripes? the shock of having a soldier captured?
'No Israeli soldier has been held hostage by the Palestinians for twelve years.'
'When you die, it's not your problem any more,' said presenter Avri Gilad. "But when you get kidnapped, it's a predicament so extreme, like dying again and again.'
why is condaleeza not urging restraint in the strongest possible terms? and i guess poor gilad is thinking 'why all this fuss over little old me? and just when things seemed to be moving forward too.'
it's dead easy to be a warmonger. it's rather more hard to be a diplomat.
how many palestinians is one israeli worth i wonder?
i don't really understand.
