Israel UN Envoy Protests Hamas' "Shalit Show"

[Ynet News] Yitzhak Benhorin - Israeli Ambassador to the UN Gabriela Shalev slammed Hamas Thursday at the UN Security Council over Hamas' anniversary celebrations, which included a Hamas member playing the part of abducted Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit. "As a human being - as a mother - I was appalled to hear about a rally that took place in the center of Gaza City" where "150,000 people gathered and cheered for a show that mocked the misery of Gilad Shalit, the suffering of his family, and the compassion of the people of Israel, and people around the world." "Gilad Shalit has remained in Hamas captivity for 910 days and nights," she said. "We expect the international community to do its utmost to bring him home safely."
