Israeli Government Must Do More To Free Gilad Shalit

The very first thing is to suspend all Red Cross visits to Arab terrorist prisoners in Israeli hands.  If they can't see Gilad Shalit, they can't see anyone here in Israel.

At the same time all "humanitarian aid" to Gaza must be suspended and blocked.  It's inhuman cruelty to leave Gilad Shalit and his family without contact.

The time has come for the Israeli Government to treat its civilians and soldiers better than it treats its enemies.

That's all that needs to be done.  No prisoner exchange, no gifts and no bribes.  There's nothing to negotiate.
