Noam Schalit, father of captured IDF solider Gilad Schalit, said Monday that serious negotiations were being held to secure his son's release, but he refused to go into details. Noam was speaking after meeting Habayit Hayehudi head Professor Daniel Herschkowitz, who said that Israel should do everything it could to free Gilad, including releasing terrorists. Earlier, Noam and the head of the Free Gilad campaign, Shimshon Lidman, met Jewish Agency chairman Natan Sharansky. During the meeting, it was decided that a Jewish Agency team would be set up to help with the campaign and coordinate activities with Jewish and other pro-Israel communities around the world.
