National Union MKs said that holding negotiations with Hamas in efforts to free captive soldier Gilad Schalit will not be successful, slammed efforts to pressure the government to complete a deal and described Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's readiness to negotiate with Hamas as weakness, at a press conference on Monday.

MK Yaakov Katz criticized as "unacceptable," the behavior of former security chiefs who have come out in recent days in support of a prisoner exchange deal to free Schalit. The National Union, Katz said, represents a "large population in Israel that's upset Israel is being harmed by a group that wants to weaken Israel before its enemies far and near," adding that the country is "in the middle of a war for our existence."
