This remnded me when I started my mandatory military service in Turkey in 1977. At the Gaziemir reserve officer school at day one the rumors started that our class would be discharged early after 4 months instead of completing the entire 18 months. It never happened. The funny thing was that even those who first started the rumours later belived in it too. Right now this sounds the same to me but I hope I am wrong and Shalit is in fact returned home. He and his family sufered a lot.
