The 33 Chilean miners were underground for 69 days. Much of the world focused its attention on them, while no effort or cost was spared to get them out into the light after the nightmarish accident that buried them.

Gilad Shalit has been underground for one thousand, five hundred and seventy-four days today (he was taken on June 25, 2006).

The Chilean mine circus highlighted disgraceful safety conditions in their country. You obsess about a kidnapped Israeli soldier, what about all the Palestinian prisoners Israel holds without trial, many of them children. At least Shalit had a choice- he could have refused to have served in the IDF as many "brave" Israeli soldiers do. Why should the kidnappers ever release him?

I urge The JC not to remove clevenson's comment. It is important for everybody to see it, so they can make up their own minds about him.

Shilats predicament is tragic and his parents must also be going through hell

But we must remember he is one of 1.5 million prisoners in Gaza.

And as clevenson points out he is not an innocent he was engaged on less than edifying business

stephenb, do enlighten us: precisely what 'less than edifying business' was Gilad Shalit engaged in on the morning of his kidnap?

well Marian he was partaking in the occupation of Gaza. And dont tell me the occupation ended a year earlier. The reasonable man on the Clapham omnibus would regard the control of Gaza airspace , its borders, the saying of what can move in and what can move out, who can move in and who can move out as occupation. You can say it isent so just like humpty dumpty said a word means whatever I mean by it.But a private language is no language at all , a contradiction in fact
