Dr. Mordechai Kedar, a lecturer at Bar Ilan University and an expert on the Middle East, discusses the potential prisoner swap with Hamas and whether Israel should accept the proposed deal.
Palestinian newspaper Al-Quds revealed the details of the Egyptian proposal for a prisoner swap, according to which Israel would hand over the bodies of 39 Palestinians who fought in the 2014 Gaza war, including 19 Hamas members, in exchange for information on the Israeli captives. In the next stage, Israel would free 58 Palestinian prisoners released during the Gilad Shalit prisoner swap of 2011, but later re-arrested for terror activities. Egyptian-led negotiations on a prisoner exchange would then take place.
Hamas has accepted the deal and is awaiting Israel’s response.

Life-Saving ATVs Stop Terrorists Before they Attack Innocent Israelis
Palestinian attackers have terrorized Israelis with stabbings, shootings, bombings and car-rammings throughout Israel, with no end in sight.
Specialized, state-of-the-art, compact, all-terrain ATVs that maneuver in tight spaces are Israel’s “secret weapon,” designed to pursue and capture terrorists BEFORE they attack. Life-saving ATVs are desperately needed to protect communities throughout Israel. Please donate generously!
