Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's weakness in efforts to release captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit are a danger to the values of Israel, Noam Schalit said Sunday during a press conference from the Schalit family's protest tent in Jerusalem.

The captured soldier's father, speaking on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of Gilad's captivity, said "Prime Minister Netanyahu, you do not have the authority to kill Gilad Schalit. The weakness and obstinacy that Netanyahu has shown in this process is a danger to the values of Israel."

"We tell the prime minister, you are unable to put pressure on Hamas, to pay the demanded price. We are not talking about every price, about hypothetical things, just about the demanded price," Noam said. "No one will forgive you for abandoning Gilad which is what has happened until today."
