Thought id come back here to see whats going on and post this
well, has anyone here heard of Ron Arad? to do so, youll need to jump back 17 (!!! years in time, to the day he and his fellow partner in their aircraft made a little mistake and flew into Lebanese air territory, and crashed the plain.
The partner was rescued soon after the crash, but Arad was taken in captivity by hizballah...
17 years later, he is still there.
Lately, there has been an outbreak in an ongoing deal to swap 3 israeli soldiers, who are known are dead that were taken by hizballah 3 years ago, and Elhannan Tennenboim, a citizen who was kidnapped in Abu Dhabi while making businness (or so that was told), and for these four people, there will be 457 (if i remember correctly), 457 arab prisoners (in israel) let free (palestinians, arabs, the lot) including the guy who tortured Ron for years in Iran who i cannot currently remember his name.
the thing is, that latest news shows that Ron may still be alive, 17 years after he was taken prisoner in Lebanon and later transferred to Iran, and the Israeli government (which i live under) is doing absolutely NOTHING to include Ron in this ongoing deal!!!
dont get me wrong, but more and more people are getting invloved in this unfairness, and actually, the fact is that for Israel, a persons life is worth a lot more here than for hizballah, 100 or so prisoners for every person, which also gives a hint about how much hizballah cares about the people they call "holy fighters".
just to give us people something to talk about.
