Gershon Baskin’s efforts to secure Gilad Shalit’s release.

Bring Gilad Home

Bring Gilad Home

Today, while canvassing for the Green Movement-Meimad in Haifa, during the slow moments I would talk with the two high school students hired by Likud to promote their party.  The kids asked me to explain Likud’s platform, which I did.  Then they asked, what about Gilad Shalit.  I answered that on Gilad Shalit there is a consensus across the political spectrum – we all want him home as soon as possible.  Maybe there are disagreements regarding how much to “give up,” but everyone desparately wants him home.  I mentioned that one of our party members – Gershon Baskin – was involved in these efforts, but I didn’t know the details.  Today Gershon’s efforts are featured in a Haaretz article by Akiva Eldar.  We are proud to have Gershon with us and pray that his efforts and those of others pay off soon with the safe return of Gilad Shalit to his parents, family and country.
