Instead of doing PRH (public relations histrionics) -Shalit's poor family should contact Palestinian families, which family members have been imprisoned by Israel, and together establish an Action of Suffering Families/People. All those families together should lobby their respective governments not only to free the prisoners (10,000+ on the Palestinian side), but to finally, truly and responsibly negotiate peace between the adversaries. All Israelis, who support Shalit’s family should also support this idea, even as a mean of self-preservation – as Israel slowly but surely is bringing disaster upon itself. Wake-up Israelis – and make a genuine assessment of your own behaviour and life-situation, for this purpose free your minds and hearts – even for a while – from your post-traumatic stress disorders, related paranoias, compensatory delusions of superiority etc. The world is sick of your hypocrisy, chutzpah, deception, lies, abuses of many kinds, pretending to be victim while being the aggressor, and cruelty etc. Start rescuing yourself now – better late than never. Good luck!
