Gilad Shalit: 2 Years in Captivity

Aviva and Noam Shalit campaign to free their son Gilad, captured by Gazan militants on June 25, 2006. “The sky collapsed,” says Aviva, who reads a parable about a fish and a shark becoming friends that Gilad wrote in fifth grade. “In the Middle East, every side thinks it is the fish, but now Gilad is the fish, and I hope he managed to form friendly ties, and that eventually we will all be friends.” One of the kidnappers and the mother of a Palestinian prisoner held by Israel are also interviewed.
