Did Egypt sabotage deal over Gaza, Shalit?

As Israel and Hamas continue Egyptian-mediated talks on a Gaza truce deal, Cairo has emerged not as a mediator or an honest deal maker; its interests meet those of Israel to the extent that it is functioning as a broker on behalf of Israel. It may even have gone as far as to undermine an emerging French-mediated prisoner exchange. Amal Ghazal analyzes for The Electronic¬†Intifada.
