20 Palestinian Female Prisoners for a Gilad Shalit Video

October 4, 2009

The deal
was completed on 2nd Oct.and all of us felt a little lighter than before for
several minutes that we saw or heard a healthy, conscious and sound Gilad
Shalit. In the 3-minute video taken on 14th Sep Shalit seems thinner. He holds
a Gazan newspaper and smiles a little bit. He said Hamas treated him well and
hopes Netanyahu wont waste chances to save him. I think these words are not in
the way he wanted it to be but I can understand the situation. For the most
part he recalls his family went to see him in his base in Golan Heights, which
I imagined in my mind and it made me sad again.

The English
captions:

Hello, I’m
Gilad, son of Noam and Aviva Schalit, brother of Hadas and Yoel, who lives in
Mitzpe Hila. My ID
number is 300097029. Today is Monday,14/9/2009. As you see
I’m holding in my hands the Palestine newspaper of September 14 published in
Gaza. I am reading the paper in order to find information regarding myself,
hoping to find some information from which I would learn of my release and
upcoming return home. I have been
hoping and waiting for the day of me release for a long time. I hope the
current government Benjamin Netanyahu will not waste the chance to finalize a
deal, and I will therefore be able to finally have my dream come true and be
released. I wish to
send regards to my family and say to them that I love and miss them and yearn
for the day in which I would see them again. Dad, Yoel
and Hadas, do you remember the day when you visited my base on the Golan
Heights on December 31st, 2005, that if I am not mistaken was called Revaya B.
We walked around the base and you took photos of me on the Merkava tank and on
one of the old tanks at the entrance to the base. We then went to the
restaurant in one of the Druese villages. And on the way we took photos on the
side of the road with the snow-capped Mount Hermon in the background. I wish to
say to you that I feel good, health-wise, and the mujahadeen of the izzadien
al-qassam brigades are treating me very well. Thank you
and goodbye.


It’s still
very skeptical. If Shalit is safe and sound, why hamas refused to allow red
cross in? And I
somehow hope the tweet4shalit campaigne launched this summer on his birthday
could be heard by him, although I highly doubt ‘Feleteen’ paper would cover
this story.

Ha’aretz
sent a special bulletin. And I can see who are those 20 Palestinian females.
All would-be suicide bombs, attempted murderers. I have no idea whether this is
a fair deal despite what many comments indicates. According to previous talks,
hamas’ demand was 100+ prisoners incl most bloody ones in exchange for Shalit.
If the release really happens, what would be the aftermath? Will the terrorists
launch attacks again? Will those women, those mothers, leave their children
behind and attempt again to kill another mothers? Among all the opinions, I’m
able to agree with only one. Israel should try to capture a senior hamas
leader. I have read many legends of Mossad and Shin Bet. Cant they just do it
again?

-p.s- the
video rapidly spread throughout the web but with the same source from youtube.
Since it seems like every door lock me out of youtube I have to find the
complete video somewhere else. wejew.com rocks with cutting edge web 2.0
features (loving the spinning tag cloud) although its layout looks a little
messy.
