A deal with Hamas to secure the release of captured IDF soldier St.-Sgt. Gilad Schalit is imminent, assessed Kadima MK and former Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) head Avi Dichter on Sunday morning. Speaking to Israel Radio, Dichter said that Israelis would "have to learn to live" with the heavy price that will be paid for Schalit's release. Dichter stated that Tanzim chief Marwan Barghouti and Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PLF) secretary-general Ahmed Sa'adat - the two most disputed names on the list of prisoners whose release Hamas demands - would not be released within the framework of a deal.
