Israel only reacts to language of force, kidnappings

Hani Al-Masri, senior Palestinian leader, writer and political commentator:
"Israel understands only the language of pressure, the language of interests, the language of force… During the history of the Israeli-Palestinian struggle we have noticed that in some of the deals, thousands of detainees were exchanged for a single soldier, or two, or three. If so, that is the message that Israel is giving us – that it understands only the language of force and the language of interests. We must resort to the one language or to the other, or to both languages jointly [force and interests]."
