Free Gilad Shalit - 25 Today

Gilad Shalit, an Israeli soldier held captive by Hamas terrorists, is 25 years old today. This is his sixth birthday in captivity, denied his basic human rights under international law for over five years.

After half a decade, it is easy to lose hope. But it is incumbent on all of us to ensure that Gilad is not forgotten. Keep up the pressure on the international community to demand his immediate release by doing whatever you can to raise awareness of this ongoing war crime.

Don't let Gilad Shalit spend another birthday in a Hamas dungeon.

British Taxpayers Swindled by New EU Bailout


Why is it only through a solitary Israeli news agency that I learn of the latest EU bailout? British taxpayers are once more to have their pockets picked to raise €22.5 million for the Palestinian Authority, whose profligacy and corruption has left it unable to pay its army of bureaucrats. The media silence over this story is particularly distressing because among those on the PA’s payroll are the families of suicide bombers and over 5,000 terrorists in Israeli gaols. I sincerely hope that the Daily Express will condemn this multi-million euro swindle.
