I just want to preface that what I am about to write is not my usual way of doing things. I am in real life hard pressed to harm any living thing.
I read that the gentleman from Hamas in charge of Gilad Shalit, the soldier that was kidnapped, has said that what is happening in Gaza now could cause them to make Gilad Shalit disappear forever ala Ron Arad. They would simply sever all ties. You see we are getting pounded by Qassams and we have hit back. We have also hit back for the death of an innocent volunteer on a kibbutz in the Negev. When I read the headline I wanted to reach into my computer screen and kill "the gentleman from Hamas" with my own two hands. Being an oncology nurse I felt that an overdose of several different chemotherapies would be appropriate.
I pray that Gilad's family will find peace and that his captors will know hell here on earth and in the world to come.
