Noam Schalit, father of captive soldier Gilad Schalit, said that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and members of his bureau are trying to hide their inability to return Gilad by repeatedly scaring [the public] about terror attacks, Israel Radio reported on Friday.

Netanyahu is turning to the lowest common denominator of public anxiety, Schalit said, and is bringing up the Jibril Deal 26 years ago, "even though he knows that, today, the State of Israel knows how to deal with terrorists and with terror."
