I had the sad, great honour of being the keynote speaker in a community ceremony for Gilad Shalit at the Stroum Jewish Community Center, Mercer Island, Seattle.
They were looking for an ex-Israel Defence Force to provide a talk on Staff Sergeant Gilad Shalit. Shalit is an Armoured Corps soldier who was kidnapped inside Israel by the Islamic Resistence Movement (Hamas) in June 2006. He is still held in captivity and denied visits by the Red Cross since 2006.
