Among the most exciting moments in this process of Redemption is watching the pieces come together. Anyone can do this. (You don't have to be a prophet!) Just by being an observer of the human scene,...current events, talk radio, internet news and daily experiences,--all this can be eye-opening about how the Rebbe's prophecy is being fulfilled.

Hamas Leader Admires Israel For Saving One Soldier in Prisoner Swap

It is foretold that in the Redemption, the Arabs will willingly  give the land of Israel to the Jewish people because they will see clearly that it belongs to them. Perhaps this story of Arab leaders openly admiring the Jewish people is a marker along the way to true peace, based on the truth.

Hamas leader praises Israel’s ‘strength’ in prisoner swap

High price paid for single soldier

JERUSALEM — A senior Hamas official praised the “strength” Israelshowed in a prisoner exchange that swapped more than 1,000 Palestinian convicts for one captured Israeli soldier.
“To do what Israel did shows the value Israeli society places on human life,” Salah al-Arouri, a member of the Islamist militant group’s politburo, said this week on Israel Radio from Damascus, Syria.
“This is a pillar of Israel’s strength — to wage a war to free one man, to free a thousand prisoners for him,” he said, referring to the Jewish state’s efforts to free Staff Sgt. Gilad Schalit from his Hamas captors. “This is the strength of a society and an army.”
The Hamas leader’s praise for the cohesiveness of Israeli society echoes sentiments heard elsewhere in the Arab world since Sgt. Schalit’s release:
• Israel Channel Two television quoted columnist K. al-Ahmed, writing in the al-Qabas newspaper in Kuwait, as saying: “I wish I were Gilad Schalit; I wish my country cared so much about me.”
