"One week after the release of hundreds of Palestinian prisoners gained freedom for an Israeli soldier, Israel's cabinet agreed Tuesday to another swap, this time with Egypt to win the release of an American-Israeli law student who has been in Egyptian custody since June 12. The deal, expected to take place Thursday, would see 25 Egyptians held in Israeli jails go free in exchange for Ilan Grapel, 27, whose parents are expected to fly to Israel from their homes in Queens, N.Y., to welcome their son."
