The World Jewish Congress on Tuesday welcomed the news of Gilad Schalit's release from Hamas captivity in Gaza and return to Israel.

"Gilad is finally coming home, which is wonderful news for his family and the entire Jewish people,” WJC President Ronald S. Lauder said in a first reaction, adding: “Despite the enormously painful price that only Israel would consider paying, Jewish communities across the globe stand side by side with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his cabinet’s decision, and they salute Noam and Aviva Shalit for their courage. Their relentless struggle has finally paid off.”
