Go read some of the condemnations many talkbackers on both sides of the political fence have laid at Hamas's feet. Also, this man is an ENGINEER, abducted in another country without legal proceedings and is being held for no known reason. To compare him to Shalit, a SOLDIER who was captured while participating in a siege against enemy territory, is silly. People are concerned about Shalit, but he made a choice to join the IDF (and don't tell me he didn't have a choice--he's half-French and could have easily protested or gone back to his own country), and he is paying for that choice. What choice did this man make that caused him to be kidnapped and interrogated? To be born Palestinian? To have the audacity to be an engineer? To leave Gaza to marry a woman in Ukraine and have children with her? If it comes out that this man is some kind of terrorist mastermind, then good--Israel should keep him, charge him and punish him. They should also apologize to the Ukraine for arresting him without the proper legal framework (for the Jewish State, Israel really doesn't seem to understand the concept of 'law'.) If he's not a terrorist, well, Israel just keeps digging their own grave, don't they?
