Help Pay For Billboard Near U.N. About Gilad Shalit

For almost five years, the Gilad Shalit has been held captive illegally, in isolation, in unknown conditions. Hamas has forbidden him contact with the outside world, communication with his family, and basic humanitarian access from the Red Cross. These are clear violations of International Law, the Geneva Conventions and common human decency.

As we approach the five year anniversary of his capture, the Palestinians are seeking approval from the United Nations to establish a state of their own. It is time for us to remind the world that no state should be established upon such crimes. We must exert pressure on the international community for Gilad’s immediate release. Any further legitimization of the Palestinian push for statehood will only serve to allow the continuation of Shalit’s unlawful detainment and encourage other such terrorist acts.

Let’s put this billboard up to remind the U.N. that they cannot continue to ignore these terrorist actions, bypass the peace process, and legitimize Hamas.

Please donate to help erect this billboard near the U.N. headquarters: link

I'm a computer science professor in Melbourne, Australia although my views have nought to do with my employer. I skylark as the band leader/singer for the Schnapps Band. My high schooling was in Chabad and I continued at Yeshivat Kerem B'Yavneh in Israel.
