Gilad Shalit: When the Shark and The Fish First Met

From Arutz Sheva:

A short story written by kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit at age 11 will be professionally illustrated, published, and released to select bookstores in January. The story is about a fish and shark that become friends despite their parents’ opposition and eventually create peace between their two species.

The story has already been translated into English, Arabic, and other languages, and has inspired an art exhibit in Nahariya. Organizers hope to bring Arabic copies of the story to the Palestinian Authority, and to bring the art exhibit to the central district.
The original story in Hebrew is available online:

The Israeli Illustrators' Association, in coordination with the initiator, "The Edge Gallery" in Nahariya, has decided to take advantage of this story as a way to keep the kidnapped soldiers in the public eye. They have illustrated Gilad's story, each in his own style. Their illustrations will be exhibited in a show, opening at "The Edge Gallery" in Nahariya on November 17, 2007. There is a possibility that this show will continue in other parts of Israel as well.

The parents of Gilad, are inviting Israeli children and you too, to illustrate Gilad's story.

Read "When the Shark and The Fish First Met"--and learn more about the Keren Maor Foundation.

"Pollard is in jail because he is a Jew, and not because of any crime that he committed."

Pollard is in prison because he spied for a foreign government.

If you want to argue that his sentence is unreasonably long or that he was spying for a friendly government and that ought to be given consideration-I have no argument with you. But to say he’s imprisoned simply for being a Jew is the sort of dishonesty I expect from the PLO.

Hi there, I'm just writing to say I'm happy to hear that Gilad Shalit is still alive! When I heard that Israel were going to exchange a prisoner for some bodies of soldiers I thought that maybe I was wrong in thinking Gilad was alive all this time.. I tihnk about him a lot because he must be suffering so much..
