Gilad Shalit

We can't give up hoping for the best for Staff Sergeant Gilad Shalit, IDF soldier being held by Hamas terrorists for the past four years today. John McCain was held for five and a half years by the North Vietnamese and survived. When he returned to the states he became a senator and then even ran for President of the USA. Such a good outcome should only happen to Gilad.

Hamas still will not let Gilad see the International Red Cross or his family while in captivity. They're afraid a visit would give away the location where he is being kept. Gilad was only 19 when he was captured after being injured by the terrorists, who had killed two other soldiers in a surprise attack. He has never been allowed medical attention. It's interesting to note that Fatah (Abba's party who now resides in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) was in charge of Gaza at the time Gilad was taken as a POW.

Besides taking or killing soldiers, Hamas has arrested and kidnapped journalists. No one is safe with Hamas in this seat of power.
