The Middle East is full of surprises.
Yesterday I heard Israel’s morality vindicated by the strangest source…
“Israel holds her soldiers so dearly beloved that she released 1000 prisoners to get back one hostage, Gilad Shalit. We are seven. Please help us.”
This came as a clinching statement in a plea for help, made to the Egyptian President Morsi.
Seven Egyptian Security personnel (one army recruit, 4 port security officers and 2 members of state security) were abducted near the border town of Rafah by Bedouin last Thursday.
