The father of kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Shalit delivered a speech on Monday saying, "The government of Israel has abandoned my son, there are no words ...to describe this."

The speech given at a conference for the Yad Labanim organization at the Dan Panorama hotel in Tel Aviv criticized the government and specifically Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu.

"The government of Israel and the head of the government do not have the courage to admit in their failure to release Gilad through alternate options, and on the other hand do not reveal the integrity that is required in paying the price necessary today for an IDF solider who is still alive, in so far as it does not stand behind its responsibility to bring a captive home."
