On Monday July 10, peaceful protest demonstrations were held in capital cities around the world to campaign for the release of Corporal Gilad Shalit, who was kidnapped by Palestinian terrorists while guarding communities in southern Israel on June 25, 2006. Two of his comrades, Pavel Slutzker, 20 and Hanan Barak, 20 were murdered in the same attack.
July 12 saw an intense escalation of attacks on Israel; with 2 more Israeli soldiers kidnapped from their positions near the northern Lebanese border, by Hezbollah (Hizbollah) terrorists. Eight soldiers were killed on the same day in Hezbollah attacks while protecting the border and rescuing their fellow soldiers. Killed were: Shani Turgeman, 24; Eyal Benin, 22; Nimrod Cohen, 19; Wasim Nazel, 27; Alexei Kashiniervski, 21; Yaniv Bar-on, 19; Sgt. Shlomi Yirmiyahu, 20 and Sgt. Gadi Musayeb, 20. The names of those kidnapped are yet to be released.
In Australia, activities are focusing on a Blue Ribbon campaign
to raise awareness for the plight of Gilad and now the other abducted Israelis.
The Blue Ribbon provides a simple visual reminder of Gilad and can be easily
pinned to your clothing, tied to your car aerial or your front fence.
