Gilad Shalit - Three Years In Captivity

Today is the third anniversary of Gilad Shalit's capture at the hands of Hamas, and we still don't know if he's alive. Hamas are refusing to give any information whatsoever on his condition, and are refusing to allow any humanitarian organisations to assess him, even though, they point out, it's inhumane, a breach of human rights, and against the law. Well since when did Hamas care about any of that? All we can do is hope and pray for him to come home soon. There is also a campaign to create awareness of Gilad by getting his name as one of the top trends on Twitter, so if you are using it, include #Gilad in all your posts. And if you are in Israel, keep up the protests.
