Mahmoud Zahar: Schalit can be freed 'within a day' if Israel brave enough

Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar says a deal to free Gilad Schalit "could be reached within a day, if an Israeli government brave enough to release prisoners serving life sentences is formed." According to a report on Israel Radio Thursday, Zahar said Hamas did not believe the Schalit case would last as long as it has. Zahar said Hamas had turned down requests by the Red Cross to visit Schalit for security reasons, but added that Islam commands fair treatment of prisoners.
