A 21st Birthday Card for Gilad Shalit Campaign

Hat tip: Lady OK, thanks!


A 21st Birthday Card for Gilad Shalit Campaign

The Israeli kidnapped soldiers' plight and the despair and anguish of their families moves me deeply. I hope you feel the same. I keep trying to put myself in their shoes and my heart weeps.

Our Gilad Shalit, the Israeli soldier Arab terrorists from Gaza snatched from Israel will turn twenty one on August 28th 2007. Unless there is a sudden change in circumstances, this will be Gilad's second birthday spent in captivity.

So how about sending a birthday greeting card to Gilad? Noam Shalit, Gilad's father approved the idea.

We need to make our point loud and clear: Gilad is in our hearts and we want him released NOW!

Please enlist your friends and acquaintances and ask them to do the same.

Hi Batya
Kol hakavod for this effort... it's fantastic...
Yes, what a tragedy is happening with him and the other guys... we have to daven a lot... what else can we really do?? With respect and appreciation for great initiatives like this, it's still hard to know what sort of an effect it will have at the end of the day... that's not to say that we must give up or stop trying, chas veshalom

I've written a great song about Gilad, Eldad and Ehud, and recorded it in studio thanks to some generous funding from the Sochnut here in South Africa... You can download a high-quality mp3, view lyrics, info & news about the song, at this site: http://milleniumhand247.googlepages.com/
