Gilad Shalit was gone again. But instead of languishing in a Hamas dungeon, he was covering the NBA Finals. And his father, Noam, is running for a seat in the Knesset.
San Francisco’s Mayor Edwin Lee declared this past August 28 “Gilad Shalit Day” in that city. That was the date of Shalit’s 25th birthday, his sixth in captivity. Now, just a week and a half later, September 7 will be “Gilad Shalit Day” in New York City.
