IDF Chief of General Staff Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi said Friday "there is not a day where the subject of returning [kidnapped IDF soldier] Gilad Schalit goes off the agenda." Ashkenazi, speaking during a visit to Druse villages in honor of the Eid al Adha, or Festival of the Sacrifice, made the comments after earlier in the day Foreign Minister, Kadima leader and prime ministerial hopeful Tzipi Livni said the state cannot return each and every captive soldier.
