We have not forgotten Gilad Shalit

StandWithUs is circulating a petition directed to the International Committee of the Red Cross, Amnesty International, and the United Nations, aimed at putting pressure on Hamas to free Gilad Shalit. Given that those organizations are all rabidly antisemitic and anti-Israel within their own four walls, I think it’s an excellent idea to apply as much external pressure as possible.

Please take a minute to sign the petition.

    I recommend that everyone hook up with their local Stand With Us organization.  In Seattle, SWU alerted me that a local food co-op was considering boycotting Israeli products and asked everyone to get involved via email and/or showing up a co-op board meetings.  I guess we created enough of a fuss for whoever suggested the boycott to back down, so the suggestion was tabled with no action and no plan of action in the future.

    You can always count on anti-Semites to keep trying, so I’m sure they’ll be back, but at least we will hear about it and can take action.

    While Israel has not forgotten Shilad, perhaps the Israelis would do better to not forget the Old Testament.
