1500 and Still Counting

Gilad Shalit did not celebrate his 24th birthday with family and friends in Jerusalem.

He has been held captive by Hamas in Gaza for 1500 days, 

unseen by any representative of the International Red Cross and unaware of his family’s endeavors.

The original protest tent sent up on the street near the Prime Minister’s Residence was quite modest.

The number of days in captivity shown on the top getting larger every day.

Family and friends marched from the Shalit home in the North

to the Jerusalem protest tent.

Noam and Aviva Shalit settled in the begining of July, receiving visitors,

 tourists who come by

and other supporters.

Counter protesters across the street were louder than usual the evening of 1500 day “milestone” .

Police separated the opposing sides.

The media was on the scene, as the traffic backed up the length of Azza Street.

The tent city is expanding,

1501 days and still counting, the tragic situation continues.

    I am also one of the people questioning. It took America ten years to find and kill Bin Laden. With all our brilliant technology and know-how, why can we not find Gilad??????
