Noam Schalit, father of captured IDF soldier Gilad, declined to comment on what his next move would be after listening to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's comments on the matter Tuesday night. The soldier's father commented that he had met with Olmert earlier in the day, and said that he still hoped the current government, in its final days, would be able to "return Gilad, finish the matter, pressure Hamas, and come to an agreement." He said that the government "knows what to do and how to do it," adding "it's a shame that it's being done only after a thousand days of [Gilad] being in captivity." At Olmert's Tuesday evening press conference, he vowed that the current demands submitted by Hamas would not be accepted so long as he remains premier.
