This Kidnapping is no surprise. Since the deal about Gilad Shalit everyone (including Hamas) knows very well how much the Israli goverment is willing to pay for one of their citizens:The exchange-rate is one Israeli for 1000 Palestinians.Since the Hamas (and Fatah) has a significant number of its members spending their time in Israeli jails (most of them for very good reasons), their motivation to abduct Israelis is obvious.
