A Lesson From The Release of Alan Johnston

MSNBC reports on how it was done:

Hamas gunmen on Tuesday took up positions around the stronghold of the shadowy group holding Johnston, stepping up the pressure to secure his release.

Members of Hamas’ 6,000-strong militia moved onto high-rise rooftops and deployed gunmen in streets in the Gaza City neighborhood of the Doghmush clan.
Allahpundit gets it exactly right:
Take a lesson from people who would know — this is how you deal with jihadist threats.
Now it's Israel's turn to free Gilad Shalit.

Something to keep in mind on the 31st anniversary of the Entebbe Rescue.
