In 1967, Israel launched a war and overran Gaza. Gaza has been under occupation and siege, since. Israel never gave up its occupier status. Occupation and siege are acts of war. You have been engaged in acts of war against the people of Gaza for almost half a century, continuously. Some of their acts of resistance have been terrorism, but not all. And Israel does not have clean hands either. Gilad Shalit was enforcing the siege when captured. He was not the Lindbergh baby snatched from his cradle. Recognizing as a captured soldier taken in a war Israel started would go a long way to freeing him. The Israeli government is in denial that he was captured in a war in which he is a soldier. You hold 10,000 POWs. They hold one.
