The Schalit family organized a rally in Kiryat Motzkin Monday evening in support of their kidnapped son.

"We are standing here and it is very exciting to see all the people that are here with us", said Noam Schalit at the rally.

He continued by saying "I hope that this movement, the many people that arrived and swept us away, will continue to arrive and continue to support us and become bigger and stronger."

These comments were met with a rapturous round of applause from the people attending the rally.

"We expected hundreds but thousands arrived" said Schalit who called for more people to join until the aim of the march is reached - the return home of his son, Gilad.
