How many unhappy birthdays more?

.
Gilad Schalit turned 25 today, somewhere in the Gaza Strip.

It is his 6th birthday in captivity, since being kidnapped by Hamas terrorists in 2006.

This is really a sad story.. let`s hope that he very soon is free and will see his family again. There are many support organizations for Gilad, and many in Norway also support and pray for him.

What a shocking waste of time. War is ghastly.

Cruel fate! I wonder if human beings will ever start acting like humans again...these wars are too devastating.

Happy Birthday to Gilad and peace to his family.

I pray not many more. May this be the year....

SO distressing!

Just surviving IS Israel's 'next big thing' as you so eloquently said, Dina.

We cry for him and his family too.

I was standing in Metula,(spelling?) right at the "Good Fence" not 2 weeks before the war in 2006 happened.

I put this on my Facebook page Dina; my cousins, one of them in particular (he is in the IDF, reserve now) is so passionate about keeping Gilad's name present in the world and not forgotten.

So very sad. Prayers for all.

I can not imagine what he's going through. This is too awful!

How terrible for him, his family and in fact for Israel! I feel very sad when I hear or read that someone who has not committed a crime, is imprisoned. I hope that he soon will be freed. Six years is such a long time. I was in a concentration camp for about two years and it felt like eternity.
