Sons shall be freed

There was a rally in Tel Aviv on Thursday to free the IDF soldiers taken prisoner by the Hamas and Hezbollah:
Tens of thousands of demonstrators gathered at Rabin Square in Tel Aviv Thursday night to pressure the government to bring back three IDF soldiers kidnapped this summer by terrorists.

Police estimated that some 40,000 people crowded into the heart of Israel’s White City to demand the release of IDF captives Gilad Shalit, Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser. Shalit was kidnapped on June 25th by Hamas terrorists in a raid on an army outpost at the Kerem Shalom crossing bordering Gaza and Egypt. Goldwasser and Regev were kidnapped by Hizbullah terrorists at the border with Lebanon on July 12th, touching off a full-scale war.

Entitled “Soldiers Are Not Left Behind,” the rally was organized by the families and friends of the hostages as well as public figures. Numerous smaller demonstrations over the past two weeks preceded the massive show of support for the captives and their families. Protest rallies snowballed as calls grew for government leaders to either resign or appoint a state commission of inquiry into the mistakes made in the management of the war.
While we're on the subject, there's been still more rocket barrage against Sderot:
A wave of Kassam rockets was fired at Sderot and environs this morning (Thursday), causing a fire and sending two people into shock.

After two weeks of nearly complete Kassam quiet, and over a month of relative quiet, the Red Dawn early-warning system alarm sounded throughout the city of Sderot and nearby areas this morning. Three rockets smashed into the city streets shortly after 8 AM, damaging several buildings. One Kassam landed not far from a school in Kibbutz Shaar HaNegev.
With this, I think it's time to contact the Shas party, something I'm not sure anyone's thought of doing yet, and telling them that, if they truly respect even their public, that they'll leave the government.
