Israel resumes negotiations for soldier's release

Israel is back in contact with a mediator who is trying to broker a deal for the release of captured soldier Gilad Shalit, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday.

"There was a renewal of contact with the German mediator," Netanyahu said in a radio interview Sunday.

"We are acting on the issue of Gilad on an almost daily basis - not almost - we are acting all the time in different and varied ways to try and bring him back," he said.

"One of these ways, a central way, is these negotiations that were renewed a few weeks ago." Netanyahu said.

Hamas spokesman Ayman Taha told CNN that the German mediator visited Gaza a few weeks ago, but no progress was made, he said.

Shalit, now 24, has been held since June 25, 2006, when Palestinian militants from Gaza captured him.

    Take it easy General. You still looking for that nurse?. I know few good ones myself, but they weren't in the army. I did ask around. Why don't you try a VA hospital, you might find your nurse there, if not I bet the VA will do everything possible to find you that nurse. If you keep it up, you might end up in a mental hospital where you will found only male nurses, that will be bad news for you. Take care General.
