Unhappy Father’s Day for Noam Shalit

Three years after Hamas kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, the terrorist group that former President Jimmy Carter recently asked be removed from the U.S. terrorist list, still has not provided his family any news of his health. Let alone agreed to release him or even allow him access to the International Red Cross.

Now the Jewish Community Association of Austin is joining in a JTA e-letter campaign to urge President Obama to not forget Gilad’s father, Noam, and his friends praying for Gilad’s safe return as former President Carter apparently has. Especially not on this Father’s Day.
