I vehemently oppose this deal. How many more Jews will die as a result of this wicked ‘trade’ of monsters for victims? And what of the hostages left behind? What unimaginable fate awaits them? This is beyond irrational, it’s catastrophic. Israel should not stop. Just fight.

Ayelet Lash on X:

Serious question, in light of the deal:
What will prevent 200 terrorists from entering an elementary school on the edge of a settlement in Binyamin tomorrow, kidnapping 300 girls from grades 1-4, and demand 2,000 freed terrorists in return?!

After all, we are dealing with arch-Nazis.
What will prevent them from this lust for kidnapping more and more Jews?

Translated from Hebrew by
Righteous in Sodom:

The Religious Zionist Party:

As much as the publications regarding the kidnap deal that will be brought to the government today are true, the proposed deal is bad and must not be agreed to.
Bad for Israel’s security, bad for the abductees and bad for the IDF soldiers.

We want to see all the abductees at home safe and sound and our hearts go out to their families. And precisely because of this, it is a deal that should not be agreed to.

The military pressure on Hamas is working and therefore Hamas and Yahya Sinwar are now offering such a deal. Hamas is desperate for days of truce in order to organize for the continuation of the fighting while conducting repeated manipulations with the rest of the abductees, and therefore it is necessary to continue the pressure and make sure that all the abductees are released.

We put before our face the remaining abductees, including IDF soldiers and female soldiers whose deal will leave them for an unknown period of time, raise their “price” and give Hamas the opportunity to organize to hide them and withstand IDF attacks for a longer period of time.

We are confronting the IDF soldiers who, during the cease-fire, will be exposed to attacks and threats of kidnapping and murder, with a limited ability to react, and an increased risk of life with the resumption of fighting after Hamas reorganized.

We confront the residents of the Otaf that the threat that harmed them and threatens to continue harming them will be left in place and will be established during the cease-fire days.

We place in front of us the citizens and soldiers who will be murdered and kidnapped in the future, in Israel and in other countries of the world, both by those released in the deal, and in order to exert additional pressure on Israel.

The only way to return all the abductees is by continuing to exert unceasing military pressure on Hamas until a complete decision is reached.

Religious Zionism will stand like a wall against the continuation of the war until the complete destruction of Hamas, the return of all the abductees and the removal of the threat posed by the Gaza Strip towards the citizens of Israel. (Ansbacher Yair on X)

Hamas, Israeli officials confirm deal nearly reached for release of 50-100 hostages

By: World Israel News, November 21, 2023:

Senior Israeli official and Hamas chief in exile Ismail Haniyeh say talks are close to securing deal to free 50-100 hostages in exchange for release of 300 terrorists.

By David Rosenberg, World Israel News

Brokered talks between Israel, the United States, and Hamas are close to securing an agreement for the release of civilians held captive in the Gaza Strip, in exchange for the release of hundreds of jailed Palestinian terrorists, AFP reported Tuesday morning.

A senior Israeli official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that the two sides are “very close to a deal” to secure the release of dozens of hostages,” Channel 12 reported.

“The talks are very far along, we are just ironing out the small details.”

The Israeli government has yet to publicly comment on the possible deal.

Senior Hamas and Islamic Jihad officials confirmed to AFP Tuesday that both terror groups have already agreed to the basic outline of the deal now under consideration.

The agreement now being hammered out, the sources claimed, would see the freeing of between 50 to 100 civilians – both Israelis and foreign nationals – in exchange for the release of 300 convicted terrorists from Israeli jails.

While previous reports on the potential prisoner swap claimed that only female terrorists and terrorists under 18 would be release, the Islamic Jihad and Hamas officials said only that women and minors would be among the 300 terrorists that would be released.

A senior Hamas official in exile, Ismail Haniyeh, released a statement to AFP claiming that an agreement is likely to be reached soon.

“We are close to reaching a deal on a truce,” Haniyeh said.

Qatar, a patron of the Hamas terror organization, has been brokering talks between the Biden administration, Israel, and Hamas since the October 7th invasion which left over 240 captives in the Gaza Strip.
