|Gilad Shalit~Free at Last!|
It has been 1,890 days (more than five years) since he has received even the tiniest communication or sign from his family~and it has been more than two years since his family has received any sign of life from Gilad.
Just ten days ago, the supporters of Gilad Shalit staged a peaceful Hi-jacking of a bus of Gazans returning from a visit to Hamas prisoners in Israel jail.
|Trucks of Goods Crossing into Gaza|
Standing at the border crossing one sees the trucks arriving from within Israel to provide the citizens of Gaza with food and basic commodities, children’s games and electrical goods and more. On this day there were truck loads of cement as well.
Gilad Shalit does not enjoy even the basic conditions demanded for any captive, in accordance with the Geneva Convention. He receives no visits, letters and no contact whatsoever with the outside world.
|Hamas Prisoners in Israeli Jail|
Gilad Shalit is held captive in inhuman conditions, while his family lives without any knowledge of his physical or emotional state. In stark contrast the State of Israel allows Palestinian/Hamas prisoners to receive visitors, letters, study for degrees and many other benefits. The picture to the left was posted from an Israeli jail by Hamas terror prisoners~to Facebook!. Need we say more?
The purpose of this protest is to ask for reciprocation between the treatment of Gilad Shalit and that enjoyed by Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.
*It Should be Noted:
Gilad Shalit was kidnapped by terrorists who infiltrated into Israel, killed two soldiers and wounded four others. Gilad was Not a criminal, whereas the prisoners held in Israeli jails have been convicted of terror attacks and murder of Israeli citizens.
Statement to the Citizens of Gaza: (Hebrew and English follow the video)
As citizens of Israel we strive to live in peace with you. Even at this time when the region is far from quiet, we are hopeful that, one day, peace will arrive and we will be able to live side by side with you, as good neighbors, in mutual respect that will lead to mutual prosperity in our region.
|Gilad Before Kidnapping|
Yesterday, 28 August 2011, Gilad Shalit turned 25. He has been a prisoner, held underground by the terror group Hamas since 25 June 2006.
The terrorists made a cross-border raid into Israel, and in the attack, killed two soldiers and wounded three. Gilad has been denied visits from the International Red Cross and his parents have not had any sign of life since October 2009.
Over the years, Hamas has continued to distribute cruel pictures depicting Gilad’s inhuman conditions, along with videos that mock his family.
|Last Sign of Life~October 2009|
The world sends millions of $$$ in “Aid” for the PA~Money which is used to pay monthly stipends to terrorists and murderers held in Israeli jails. They also pay their families. The more Jews they have killed the higher the stipend. This “Aid” Money also goes into Gaza~home of Hamas.
Yesterday there was a demonstration marking Gilad Shalit’s 25th Birthday, and demanding his release.
David and Daniel traveled to the demonstration site to interview those in attendance and film the events. We hope to have video footage for you later in the week.
Meantime, here is a sample of a Hamas video depicting Gilad Shalit in captivity.
|Hamas Mocks Kidnapped Gilad Shalit|
When the highly publicized “Humanitarian Flotilla for Gaza” attempted to break through to Gaza they refused a simple request made by Mr. Shalit to accept a letter to be delivered to his son. If they were really “Humanitarians” as they claim, Why would they Refuse this “humanitarian” request?
Meanwhile, Hamas and PA areas have Graffiti picturing the suffering boy as an aged man; posted this video showing the suffering of the father trying to free his son–with the end showing a coffin being unloaded in front of Mr. Shalit. Even more insidious is another video clip giving the impression of Gilad’s Execution. They use these emotional ploys for their own evil designs. They are asking for the release of thousands of murderous terrorists to an area where they would be free to kill again. What country would accept such terms?
Regardless of whether one loves or hates Israel, what is being done to Gilad is cruel and inhuman. And yet, money and supplies go into Gaza daily, people all over the world demonize Israel and hold up the flags of Hamas and the PA–the new “cause”.
