Miki Goldwasser, mother of kidnapped IDF reservist Ehud Goldwasser, reiterated on Channel 1 on Monday her determination to keep the issue of her son's release in the public eye. Goldwasser was kidnapped in July along with fellow reservist Eldad Regev by the Lebanese border, touching off the summer's war with Hizbullah. Miki Goldwasser said she was not outwardly criticizing politicians for neglecting her son, as she knew they cared about her son's predicament. However, she noted that while their priorities seemed to be elections and voter approval, she could not forget her son's absence so easily and insisted on making it a priority for them, as well. "It burns in by bones," she said. "Ehud is what matters right now. Eldad is what matters right now. [Kidnapped soldier Cpl.] Gilad [Shalit] is what matters right now. This is the main thing we have to take care of right now.... It's been half a year already. Where are the children?"
