Captured soldier Gilad Schalit won't become another Ron Arad, top Hamas official Musa Abu Marzouk was quoted Sunday as saying. "Gilad is a captive and we're treating him in a moral way," the deputy chairman of the Hamas political bureau told a Web site affiliated with the movement. "His rights are being respected better that those of our prisoners in Israeli jails." IAF navigator Arad has been missing since 1986 when he ejected over Lebanon. Responding to suggestions that the German go-between in the Schalit talks would quit, Abu Marzouk simply said that he wouldn't be the first or last mediator in the negotiations.
