Father of kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit, Noam, said Wednesday that any government ministers that don't want to see victory signs and burning Israeli flags in the Middle East following the release of his son "can find a nice place in Switzerland or Florida or some pastoral setting," discussing what may happen the day after Gilad is released.

A deal struck between Israel and Hamas was announced Tuesday that would see Gilad Schalit released in exchange for over 1,000 Palestinian prisoners, including a number of terrorists.

Noam said that he cannot relate to those government ministers that voted against the deal to release his son. He asked where MK Uzi Landau was during the family's push to have special privileges revoked for Hamas prisoners. "We didn't see any actions from them in the past," he added.
