Israel's Strange Deal With Hamas

Israel recently did a puzzling thing --it made a prisoner exchange deal. That part wasn't strange (they trade 1,000 Palestinian prisoners for the release of 1 Israeli - Gilad Shalit, who was kidnapped by Hamas and held hostage for five long years).

The strange part was that instead of making the deal with the Palestinian leader Abbas, who heads the faction that is opposed to violence, the Israeli's made the deal with HAMAS, an organization sworn to use violence to eliminate Israel.

WHY? Why would they make a deal with the devil and undercut Abbas and his nonviolent wing?

Some said that the deal would encourage HAMAS to kidnap more Israelis. Today HAMAS fired rockets into Israel, injuring several Israelis.

Now Israel has undermined peace and its own security by encouraging HAMAS militants to resume their violence against it. All they have done is to invite Hamas to attack Israel again, which they have...

Why? This is very strange...and not a good sign for the future.
