Citizen's Rights

Nice to hear that the Mayor of Paris has bestowed honorary citizenship on Gilad Shalit who has been imprisoned by Hamas in Gaza for 907 days.

Perhaps the Olmert government and its much vaunted 'most powerful army in the Middle East' will reconsider restoring the priveleges of Israeli citizenship to Gilad, by getting him home instead of finding a dozen excuses why they can't, or why it would not be convenient for the time being.

It's utterly scandalous that a State which 30 years ago needed just 7 days to rescue a planeload of Jews from 3,500 km away in Africa, is still dithering after two and a half years about rescuing one 22-year old citizen from their own backyard.
