Gershon Baskin will share his insights of his involvement in facilitating the secret channel that resulted in the 2011 agreement between Israel and Hamas to release Israeli soldier Gilad Schalit in exchange for 1,027 prisoners of which two hundred and eighty were sentenced to life in prison for planning and perpetrating various attacks that resulted in the killing of 569 Israelis.

In his presentation Gershon will relate to the following issues:

Is it possible to talk with the Hamas?

What is happening to the Hamas in Gaza and overseas?

How long will the Hamas rule Gaza?

What are the pros, cons and lessons learned from the 2011 agreement?

What motivates the Hamas?

Is reconciliation between the Hamas and the P.L.O. possible?

What is the current status of Oron Shaul and Hadar Goldin, Avraham Mengistu, and a Bedouin-Israeli citizen whose name has not been released for publication.
