Gilad Shalit, Where Are You?
Gadi Adelman – June 27, 2011
Five years ago in June 2006, the song “Hips don’t lie” by Shakira was at the top of the charts, the Pixar movie “Cars” was a blockbuster hit and Simon Cowell’s “America’s Got Talent” had just debuted and was the number one show on television.

Opdatering den 29. august 2011: Gilad Shalit blev 26 år gammel den 28. august – altså i går. Der er ikke meget at finde i pressen i den anledning. Den israelske soldat har siddet i fangenskab siden han var 19…
