    Of course we do, but no more so than we do the offensive things that Israel does to innocent Palestinians on an almost daily basis. And in many cases, too many to count, there's no comparison really; because HE is alive, and so many Palestinian innocents are NOT! I think that most people here, on both sides of the debate, hope for Gilad's safe return. But YOU my friend; you need to open your other eye and try to see the WHOLE picture, before you make stupid-ass comments suggesting that there's no concern for Gilad among people who object to Israel's oppression of the Palestinian people, and its refusal to allow them a state on the land it illegally occupies. I'll venture to say that for most of us, empathy isn't as one-sided as it is with you.
