It is being reported today in Israel's papers that the captive soldier, Gilad Shalit, has been injured in an IDF air strike.
Of course, no one has seen Gilad since his capture since Hamas, in total contravention of the Geneva Conventions, has never allowed the Red Cross to visit him.
I have thought for some time that he is already dead, and the letter his parents got was a forgery.
Just yesterday I said to Husband that Hamas would use the situation to declare that he had been killed by an Israeli bomb, thus making themselves look virtuous. Especially since they don't have world public opinion on their side.
I hope I'm wrong, and that Gilad is being kept in a safe place.
