Khaled Meshal, the political leader of Hamas, will travel to Cairo next week to begin negotiating a deal to release kidnapped IDF solider Gilad Shalit, according to an Islamic newspaper in London. A German intelligence official is also scheduled to help moderate the negotiation among Israel, Hamas, and Egypt, according to Haaretz. Shalit has been in captivity for four years, and one of the stated objectives of last year’s Gaza War was to attempt to free him.
