GILAD SHALIT: Three Years in Captivity

June 25, 2009 was the third anniversary of Gilad Shalit's captivity by Hamas. On that date his father said:

"My wish, today, on the 25th of June, 2009, from every person in the state,
man and woman, from children to the elderly, is to close your eyes for three
minutes," he told Army Radio Thursday. "For just three minutes close your eyes
and wait until those minutes pass, and during that time, try to think about what
my son, Gilad, has gone through, a young man who is waiting with bated breath --
not just three minutes, and not just three hours, and not even just three days,
but is waiting in darkness and despair, mentally and physically tortured, to
regain his freedom which was taken from him three years ago."
