Some 50 demonstrators gathered outside Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's Jerusalem residence on Friday, calling on him to act to secure the release of captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit before the end of his time in office. The demonstrators carried signs which emphasized that Schalit had been in captivity for 943 days and which read: "Olmert! Finish the job and free Gilad." They also held pictures of Schalit and horns, and carried placards directed at passing motorists reading: "Give a honk of support," and, "Honk your horn for Gilad."
