The author reports that, although there no clear evidence that Khaled Mashaal, the exiled Hamas leader, was responsible for the kidnapping of Corporal Gilad Shalit, he is No. 1 on Israel's hit list. Mashaal, an ex-physics professor who now lives in Damascus under Syrian protection, was once nearly assassinated by Israeli agents in 1997. Shalit's abduction is believed to have been planned by a radical Palestinian faction.
