"The Israeli government is acting with a combination of force and ego games that could bring about a tragic end to the kidnapping situation," MK Ahmed Tibi said on Monday in response to an ultimatum by the kidnappers of Cpl. Gilad Shalit in which they threatened that Israel would "bear the consequences" of refusing to release Palestinian security prisoners. "I call on the government to open negotiations for the release of [Palestinian] prisoners," Tibi said, adding that "such things have happened before." "This is the path that can guarantee a positive ending," he emphasized.
