Friday, January 30, 2004 - Top Stories - Hezbollah Makes Threat After Prisoner Swap: "In return, Israel received the bodies of three of its soldiers and won the release of a kidnapped Israeli businessman. Israelis held a memorial service for the three dead, but whisked away Elhanan Tannenbaum (search), who was kidnapped while reportedly engaged in a shady business deal, for interrogation.
At a mass rally in Beirut that Hezbollah staged to welcome the freed Arabs, the group's leader warned it would kidnap more Israelis to use as bargaining chips if necessary to secure the release of Lebanese prisoners."
400 live prisoners for 3 bodies? And we want the Germans to help us negotiate peace? We better get the Hezbollah to negotiate for us--they seem to have some smarts.
