It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע


How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Gilad Shalit A Hostage Five Years...or The ICRC Late to the Party

This past Shabbat marked five years of captivity for Staff Sgt. Gilad Shalit, held hostage by the subhumans of Hamas. For five years, the only proof we have had of his still being alive were 3 letters, and audio tape and a video that Hamas made and released in exchange for twenty female arab prisoners held in Israeli jails. There has been no contact with him since the video's release in the Fall of 2009.

In all of his demands on Israel to commit suicide on behalf of Falacstinian statehood, pResident Pampers has never made the release of Shalit a prerequisite for negotiations. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think his recent propaganda spew at AIPAC was the first time he even mentioned Shalit. But wouldn't he scream like a petulant child if Israel cut off humanitarian aid and electricity to Aza until Hamas set Shalit free? You bet your ass. Thanks for the lip service, the Barry.

But the Bambi it seems was not the last to arrive at the release Shalit party. No, it seems the International Committee for the Red Cross holds that distinction, finally publicly whining that Hamas has not allowed them to contact Shalit and confirm he is still alive.

ICRC Director-General Yves Daccord stated:
The total absence of information concerning Mr. Shalit is completely unacceptable...Hamas has an obligation under international humanitarian law to protect Mr. Shalit's life, to treat him humanely and to let him have contact with his family.
The ICRC claims it has made repeated attempts to make contact have been denied by Hamas. This is their first public statement, which followed another rejection by Hamas. Wow guys, you sure are putting on the pressure. We are all sooooo impressed.

Personally, I think the Bambi only mentioned Shalit when his Bambi-sense started tingling after his disastrous Mideast Policy speech. I mean, he is running for President. Since he's done nothing but throw Israel under the bus since taking office, why not throw out a bone? Of course, his refusal to let Jonathan Pollard attend his father's funeral so he could say Kaddish, the Jewish mourner's prayer, at his father's graveside, tells the tale of this compassionless excuse for a leader.

We continue to pray to H'shem for Gilad's speedy release, and that Israel doesn't do anything stupid like release anymore bloodthirsty murderers to secure it. May Gilad Shalit, and all Jewish captives, be sheltered by Your right hand and, in Your abounding Mercy, be reunited with their families and all of Israel. May Hamas face the Might of Your vengeance for his capture, and desecration of Your name.
