Can someone please explain what taking 'sides' of hamas incurs? It's obvious that the German is taking the side of Israel. There simply is no 'other side' to take?! Hamas want back 'prisoners' - usually defined as persons who have committed crimes to society, in exchange for Gilad. Exaclty what crime has he committed? Obvious observation perhaps but one that the West (France in particular) as well as the UN don't seem to comprehend nor apply the pressure which is staring them in the face! May Gilad return to our borders immediately, and in good health, and let us meanwhile pray for his release from captivity and pray that the West apply the necessary perssures to get back Gilad!
