Gilad Shalit Video Released

Gilad ShalitGreat news! After 1195 days in Captivity Hamas released this video of Gilad Shalit alive and “Well”. The Below Clip (filmed 14-Sept) from Israeli TV news, and translation from YNetNews does come at a price. As an exchange for the release of this video, Israel did need to release 19 Palestinian prisoners (most of whom were nearing the end of their Jail time)

What wonderful news in time for the Chagim! May the next video be of him actually coming home!

“Hello, this is Gilad, son of Noam and Aviva Shalit, brother of Hadas and Yoel, who lives in Mitzpe Hila. My ID number is 397029.

As you can see I am holding today’s Falasteen newspaper published in Gaza.

I read the newspaper in order to find information about myself, and in hopes of reading about information of my return home and my imminent release

I hope the current government headed by Benjamin Netanyahu doesn’t waste this opportunity to reach an agreement and as a result, allow me to fulfill my dream and be released.

I wish to send my well-wishes to my family and tell them that I love them and miss them greatly, and hope for the day I’ll see them again. Dad, Yoel, and Hadas, do you remember the day you arrived at my base in the Golan Heights, on December 31, 2005? We toured around the base and you took a picture of me on a Merkava tank and on one of the old tanks at the entrance to the base. Later we went to a restaurant in one of the Druze villages and on the way we took pictures on the side of the road, against the backdrop of the snowy Hermon Mountain.

I want to tell you that I feel well in medical terms, and that the Mujahidin from the al-Qassam Brigades are treating me excellently. Thank you very much and goodbye”
