Unhappy Happy 24th Birthday Gilad Shalit!

Would like to wish Gilad Shalit a Happy 24th Birthday today. This is the 5th birthday he has spent as a hostage of Hamas in Gaza. He has already spent over 4 years as a hostage. Please send a prayer or good thought
for him and his family!






May HaShem bless him!

I don't know what to say but to echo what has already been said. Happy Birthday Soldier. May your next one be at home with your family and friends.

As far as we know yes he is still alive.

And still a hostage, I say hostage because when he was taken, there wasnt a war raging, nor was he captured in a battle field, he was abducted while he was patrolling the Israeli border, so he isnt a prisoner, or prisoner of war, but a hostage of a recognized Iran backed palestinian terrorist group called Hamas.

If I was Israel, I would snatch one or more of the top Hamas scum terrorist leaders, and then offer a swap.

It will be very interesting to find out 'where', and in 'which' country, Gilad is being illegally held.

Like everyone on this Forum I wish Gilad a Happy Birthday and a safe return to his loved ones and his beloved country of Israel.

Default worth reading !

What are the thoughts of Israel's younger generation as they themselves prepare to enter the IDF? Gilad is in the news daily, and suddenly the concept of "leave no man behind" is no longer an abstract for that day far off when they put the uniform on themselves.

Surprising statements from an impressive generation and it's view on serving it's nation:

Soldiers-to-Be: No Terror Swap for Us


by Maayana Miskin


Dozens of young soldiers-to-be from the Eitan military preparation program (mechina) have informed the government that if they are taken captive, they do not want to be freed at the price of releasing dangerous terrorists. Wearing T-shirt bearing the logo, “We love Gilad,” the youth have set out for a five-day march from Jerusalem to Gaza to spread their message.

They began their journey at the Har Herzl military cemetery in Jerusalem, where they stopped to remember the fallen soldiers and to say a prayer for Gilad Shalit's freedom.


They plan to proceed to the Erez checkpoint outside Gaza, where they will call not to bargain for captive soldiers in a manner that undermines security.

One young man explained, “We are not yet in the army. We've never been in captivity. But specifically now, when we aren't yet in uniform, we are ready to make the commitment that if G-d forbid we are taken captive, we do not want them to free us in a way that would hurt national security.”

Student Liel Homiansky said he had received support from his father, a former prisoner of Zion, and another man who had been jailed by the Soviet Union. Both told him that while they were in prison, “With their whole hearts, they would never have agreed to be released if in exchange any Zionist principle would be endangered. Not even a security risk, but something like delaying aliya [immigration].”

Their support gave him the confidence to agree wholeheartedly that he does not want terrorists freed on his behalf, Homiansky said. He, along with dozens of others, signed a petition to that effect.

Students said they support the Shalit family, and want to see Gilad Shalit brought home as quickly as possible. “This is the most unifying point in this generation,” one said. “All of us want Gilad to return home safely – in an honorable way.”
Hamas has demanded the release of more than 1,000 terrorists in exchange for Shalit's freedom, and some senior military officials say meeting the demand would lead to more murders.
Efforts have been made around the world on behalf of Shalit: pro-Israel activists created a "Free Gilad flotilla" in New York, governments have called to worsen conditions for terrorists, Psalms have been recited worldwide and senior leaders including U.S. President Barack Obama have called for the young soldier's freedom. However, Shalit's captors continue to hold him incommunicado. He is assumed to be alive and in Gaza.

G_d Bless everyone of them!! This is why Israel will never fall, National Pride means something to them. This is what Honor is all about!

Nothing I could say would do them justice, just a Memorial Day prayer, that another generation won't have to go through what their Father's and Mother's have gone through. If that be not the case, then a prayer for the continued Strength, to do what is right in the face of overwhelming odds. For all of our "G_d Fearing" Countries.

Amen

Warms my heart to read those sort of stuff, and as a soldier myself I must say that I would never want my country to trade any terrorist for me. I'd rather suffer my entire life than have the people I care about suffer for one moment.

Anyhow, hope, Gilad Shalit is still alive and that he can go home after this long time in prison.

One of the most important hamas leaders should be taken into prison, to swap Gilad Shalit against this leader.

4 years is a damn long long time, terrible to think about it, to be in the hands of the mad hamas terrorists for such a long time, its a terrible terrible nightmare.

Would like to wish Gilad Shilat a Happy 25th Birthday. Yet another(6th) year as being held hostage by the lowly terrorist scum. Gilad, you are in our daily thoughts and prayers that your captivity is soon at an end and you are reunited with your family and friends.

Sholom Aleichem(peace be with you)
