Today Gilad Shalit has been in Hamas captivity 1,475 days.

On 8.7.2010 the Shalit family completed its 12 day long journey to Jerusalem from there home in the northern community of Mitzpe Hila and returned to the protest tent set up outside Prime Minister Netanyahu’s residence.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara met on 9.7.2010 met for about an hour with Aviva and Noam Shalit, the parents of kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit.

The meeting was held at the prime minister’s residence in Jerusalem shortly after the Netanyahu couple landed in Israel following an official visit to the United States.

“We will remain at the protest tent and wait until Gilad returns”, Gilad’s father said to Netanyahu.

He spoke with Noam Shalit, the father of captured Israelis soldier Gilad Shalit. The conversation between the two was played over the loudspeakers for the crowd to hear. Shalit called upon the rally participants not to stop fighting for Gilad’s release. Schwarzenegger said that, being a father of four, he could not imagine what it would feel like if one of his children were held hostage, and, therefore, is calling for Gilad to be returned home. Among the speakers at the rally were Oscar-winning actor John Voight, Angelina Jolie’s father, who presented himself as a supporter of Israel.
