Hamas kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit on June 25, 2006.
To give you some idea how far the Hamas terrorists tunneled to kill and kidnap Jewish soldiers, this picture of a Gaza town was taken from that same Israeli outpost that was attacked by Hamas:
Hamas dug a 3 kilometer long tunnel under the separation fence between Gaza and Israel and behind the army post where Gilad Shalit and his fellow soldiers were stationed that morning. This photo was taken at that army post. During the morning attack, two IDF soldiers were killed and three others wounded, aside from Shalit, who himself suffered a broken left hand and a light shoulder wound after his tank was hit with an RPG. Israeli forces believe that Gilad and his captors walked back over this field and disappeared inside this Gaza town. Gilad Shalit has not been seen since that morning.

The Hamas prisoner Gilad Shalit is doing well and gaining weight says Egypt’s Intelligence Chief.
AN Israeli soldier held by Gaza militants for more than 15 months is in good condition, Egypt’s intelligence chief Omar Suleiman was quoted as telling an Israeli minister today.

“Gilad Shalit is in good condition. He feels well and has even gained some weight because he does not do any exercise,” Mr Suleiman told Trade and Industry Minister Eli Yishai who held one-day talks in Cairo yesterday, one of his senior aides said.
Cpl Shalit was abducted on June 25, 2006, in a cross-border raid by three Palestinian militant groups, including Hamas, which today rules the Gaza Strip.
Question: Why would anyone meet hold a summit with the Palestinians until this soldier is released?
