Gilad's 4th B-day in captivity
What more is there to say? Free Gilad Schalit. Let him come home to his family. Let him celebrate his birthday - today - in the nurturing confines of his home, with his parents, siblings and friends by his side.
This will not be a "happy" day, until he is home. Safe. Secure and allowed to heal from the unimaginable mental and physical devastation he must be suffering by being separated from those whom he loves and who love him back.
Let him go. End this. Now.
