Why should anyone assume that the release of Shalit would see conditions improve in Gaza. Conditions before Shalit was kidnapped were the same as they are now.The Israeli blockade of Gaza is the worst violation of human rights taking place in the world today. Israel had many years to improve the plight of the Gazans before Shalit was taken and did nothing. So knock off the baloney.
