Hamas spokesman Ayman Te said on Thursday that Hamas believes that the German mediator heading up negotiaons for the release of captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit will resign his post in the near future.

The spokesman blamed Israeli stubbornness in the face of Hamas demands for the predicted resignation.

A member of the Hamas’s poltical wing, Itzat a-Reshik added that Israel’s postions are putting the mediator in an untenable situation, and added that the primary obstacle standing in the way of a deal is the release of a number of Hamas prisoners that Israel is refusing to set free.
