This was recently brought to my attention by Anthony, my step dad (thanks, Anthony). As you may know from the news or from my earlier post, Gilad Shalit has been held in captivity in Gaza since 2006. His kidnap, from inside the Green Line was a major contributory factor to Israel's Gaza incursion. He is also being deined the basic human right as set out in the Geneva Convention that is contact with the International Red Cross.
Please visit the Magen David Adom website for information of how you can help get Gilad this basic contact by signing their petition.Then please tell all your friends and colleagues. Together we may just be able to do something to ease Gilad's plight.
